We are proud to announce the release of the all-new Corvette C6 Z06 Carbon Side Splitters / Rocker Extensions. This lightweight part is manufactured in pre-pregnated "dry" carbon fiber composite material. Not only does this give the Z06 a more finished appearance, side splitters (sometimes called side skirts, rocker extensions, etc.) are also a valuable component in tuning the aerodynamics of a race/performance vehicle.
Think of this as an air-management device. At high speeds, a large volume of air travels along the sides of the vehicle. Without this side splitter, some of this air is allowed to "roll" underneath the rocker panels. This ends up affecting the underbody airflow - this is not a good thing. We want to keep the underbody airflow as smooth as possible, and make sure to keep extraneous amounts of air (such as air from the sides of the vehicle) from entering the underbody area
The Corvette C6 Z06 Carbon Side Splitter package comes as a 4 pc. kit, including rear wheel well extensions for a seamless look.
