The factory underbody panels work well for the most part, but over time they can become weak and break loose. When this happened to me, I had no choice but to replace the panel. As you can see, it is totally useless and was dragging on the ground.



Rather than risk it again, I upgraded to the aluminum underpanel carried by our sponsor. The kit replaces the three panels and consolidates them into one large panel. It also includes a steel guard, but I did not us it during final assembly because it made installation harder (nearly impossible to align without two people, and I only had a short time to install it), I didn't like the way it looked, and most of all I was afraid it would scrape a lot. It is supposed to improve aerodynamics though.

The best thing about this kit is that it comes with all the hardware you need to install it even if all the factory mouting points are busted.
