Default Just what the roadster needs

Got some pics below of a mold in progress for a new rear diffuser for the roadster. It's designed mainly to cover in the area under the diff cage area and stop the rear panel acting as an air brake. If it provides some ground effect then all the better.

It's got a bit more work to do but shouldn't too long.

Lol not with the enclosed cockpit but just the window frame would be ace. Feel free to use me as guinea pig if you want Could also build a rollbar into the rear of the window frame same as in that pic. Would be kinda cool.

But on a serious note if you do make a window frame scuttle i would buy one. Also do count me in on the rear diffuser for sure.
