I've got a Saturn diffuser, but I never fitted it due the bad quality.

Who was responsible for making it and whats the problem with it i can imagine as it is a really hard mould you work with cause of the width of the fins

I do have plans for a different diffuser option but working on a double bubble aeroscreen at the moment but taking my time on that although there will be a resin infused carbon option

It was made by Andy at Saturn just before he closed down, there are 3 main problems with it.
Gel coat either had air bubbles that cracked and gel coat that is missing in some places, but the biggest problem is the surface finish on the gel coat.
I'm no expert, but I would say that the mould needed more work before he started making and selling the diffusers.
