Dude that splitter looks sick. What material did you make it out of? How far does it go back? Any flex? So awesome!

It's made out of aluminum composite material (similar to alumalite it goes back to front subframe) with minor flex (flex at 140+ mph). i damaged it at the track so I'm doing a new one with custom apr carbon piece. I would recommend plywood if you are on a budget.

How much is that material and where do you get it from?

I really hate plywood cause I tried 1/2 inch and I still got flex... Need like 3/4? is what people usually say, but that is so heavy.....

any help would be appreciated to source this.

3/4" plywood is crazy. I've seen many people getting away with 1/2" birch plywood. I'd go over your mounting provisions and make sure everything is properly supported.

I've also heard great things about alumilite composite panel and probably what I'll go with. There's also stuff that's called Dibond that's similar, but it's not a strong as per anecdotal chatter.

What thickness did you use for that alumalite stuff? 3/8"?

Are you using an existing APR piece from another make/model or are you actually having them make one for you?

Yeah, its get away with but really even 1/2" home depot birch play is terrible.... Not a fan.

I can get dibond through someone local, but he said his all his supplier isn't carrying alumalite... Apparently its being phased out in signage industry due to cost....

Alumalite would be my first choice, but hard to find

You can always make it more rigid by skinning it in fiberglass and perhaps getting away with 3/8". Again, maybe you can make the mounting provisions more robust.
Keep in mind, nothing is going to be perfectly rigid. There will always be some flex, and even if there is, how much is it actually taking away from what you are trying to achieve? A small change in driver skill goes a much longer way than flex in a splitter.
