Here's the Story...

This Model 3 front spoiler design was made for a Time Attack Global race event held at Buttonwillow, CA. The results were very positive, dropping seconds off the lap times as a consequence of high-speed stability. The Tesla Model 3 ultimately set the fastest lap of the event and would also go on to win REFUEL 2019 and set a Laguna Seca track record.

DETAILS

The front spoiler is designed to reduce the amount of air going under the nose. A nice bi-product is that it also directs air up into the radiator. Additional battery cooling under significant spirited driving is helpful. We found roughly 1 second in lap time improvement in this design. 

This race-ready Model 3 front spoiler by Maier Racing is constructed from a plain weave Toray carbon fiber 3k TOE, 200gsm dry. This is woven by Composite Fabrics of America in Taylorsville, NC. We also use a layer of fiberglass in the middle for impact or damage stability.

We use polyester resins & clear gel coat for Marine applications to address the UV stability.

Every unit is handmade in California! There's Our goal is to make perfect parts yet, subtle distortions in the weave or pinholes in the gel coat are not unusual in 100% handmade products.

F.A.Q.

What is the ground clearance when compared to the OEM bumper lip?

This Model 3 carbon fiber front attaches to the factory lower lip and extends forward, thereby having a negligible impact on ground clearance when compared to the factory ride height.

 

Is it real carbon fiber?

Absolutely! This isn't an overseas knockoff. You are purchasing a track-ready component that's been able to endure the rigors of Laguna Seca and some of the most challenging circuits. Be it for the track or giving your Tesla Model 3 that aggressive appearance, every unit is made by hand here in Northern California, layer by layer.

We use a custom woven plain weave fabric made by Composite Fabrics of America in Taylorsville, NC. This special weave is an 8 by 12 unbalanced warp & fill. Meaning, we have fewer toes or strands in one direction. It helps to separate the material a little allowing the fabric to lay flat against the surface of the part, giving the appearance of a fatter bundle. We love the look of this!!

The entire unit is UV protected with a Polyester resin, marine UV stable gel coats, and ultimately PPG polyurethane clear coat with a touch of black pigment.
While there are companies out there that argue epoxies are the best way to laminate parts, the veterans at Maier Racing have found polyesters, in the long run, to be the best solution for non-yellowing, clear carbon parts over time.

 

Can I install it myself?

Yes for most DIYers, provided you have the ability to raise the car and safely gain access to the underside of the vehicle. We recommend placing a pair of Tesla-focused Safe Jacks on each of the front corners to raise the vehicle.

This Model 3 carbon fiber front spoiler attaches directly to Tesla's factory mounting points using 6 bolts (provided) and pre-installed 3M mounting tape. Holes need to be drilled ONLY to the carbon fiber tabs that fit up with the factory pop-rivet holes on the Tesla. Meaning, if you choose to take the parts off at some point, you can put the car back to original without addressing unnecessary holes.

Instructions are provided with each unit.

 

How much does it weigh?

Approximately ~4 lbs (~1.81 kg)

 

Will this affect range?

Our customers HAVE done millage test and reported “no noticeable” range changes. It is challenging to get perfect results in imperfect testing methods so, we can not officially make black & white claims.

 

What is the finish?

Clear coated.

We make all the parts the same in the sense of materials; gel coat is the first layer down, then polyester resin with the reinforcements of carbon fiber, then a layer of fiberglass and finally an additional layer of carbon fiber. When we use black gelcoat, it covers any small imperfections or pinhole bubbles in the layup. These are non-structural issues, simply cosmetic.

When we use the clear gel coat, every little imperfection is visible and it takes a lot more time to get it looking great. Consequently, the clear gel coat parts cost more from a time and material standpoint. We also clear coat over the clear gel coat with a PPG Polyurethane that is helpful with the UV protection. This is yet more steps of sanding, painting, sanding, and buffing.
