2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Splitter Height
December 30, 2013
When Street Legal Performance got a hold of this Camaro, the New Jersey-based tuner lowered it and installed a new front fascia. Part of that addition is the front splitter, ostensibly for cosmetic benefits and some additional downforce. We'd have to get our long-term 2014 SLP Panther Camaro in a wind tunnel for scientific results (for now I'm giving SLP the benefit of the doubt), but one thing the splitter does is change the everyday functionality of the car.
Pulling in and out of steep driveways sometimes requires some goofy angles and crawling along at a snail's pace. Going to the shops demands some additional attention, too (windows down, music off, listen for dreaded loud scraping noises) as the parking blocks become a potential hazard.
Luckily, the Panther's splitter glides right over the bumpers at my local grocery store without issue. If the car were any lower, I'd be parking much farther back and the 16-foot-long Camaro would definitely stick out a bit.
