2019-11-28 - Front Air Dam

Air Dam - 10 points

Tech interpretation and enforcement is any non-oem vertical aero component is an air dam.  See Photo for Example.
Jay Mauney - Chief Tech Director


Is this 1.5" piece of garden edging the same 10 points as 15" piece of plastic or aluminum that wraps around the entire front of a Miata?

Yes, any non-oe horizontal component added to the front facia of a car is considered an aero component and the addition of that component is charged 10 points. Tech may charge additional material cost if the component covers an area beyond the parameters of a standard air dam.
