Focus RS Lip Kit Install (DISRESPECTED EVO)

They told us not to do this… we did it anyway.


Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you how we’ve gone about it, but we can’t promise that anything we show you will work for your particular car, or that you won’t harm yourself, someone else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible and unless you know what you’re doing, do not fool around with very serious machinery just because you’ve seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

    So the theory behind the lip, and why the double sided tape holds it, is because the lip itself isn't providing any significant downward force. It helps to direct more air over the car. At the front of the car there will be a high pressure zone, the air will be forced to go above and below the car. The splitter forms a barrier for air to flow out of the high pressure zone underneath the car. Because more air passes over the car, and less air passes under the car, there will be a lower pressure underneath the car, sucking it into the ground.

    In real life I don't believe it does anything more than adding weight and increasing air resistance. The lip isn't engineered properly or it would be super expensive. For it do do anything it should be much much bigger. Also, as with anything aero, it's the full package that counts. A lip won't do much good if the car wasn't designed for it. There's no real alternative for the air to escape, because the front of the car isn't built for it. So the air will be forced over the lip and will go under the car anyway, creating a higher wind resistance and more turbulent air flow. If this lip does anything, it will be slowing you down.

  10. NASCAR trans use duct tape to hold body panels at around 200mph (nickname 200 an HR tape) when they start getting ragged

    6:25 If the car or the car part is TÜV approved it means that it is road legal in Germany. It stands for Technischer Überwachungsverein.

    As far as I know, the Aussie Focus is built in Thailand. Not sue about paticular models.

    As an Aviation Mechanic, there are some applications we use double sided tape, but they usually aren't installed in the air flow. :P

  15. i want to learn more about of cars. not the standard way. but the JDM way ( engineering experience). really i know nothing but i want to know everything but experience. honestly that's what i can dream for. even. a photos a photo and ill do what i can for each! – i do have engineering experience just not enough that id like to make clear. but id really be happy for the experience even for a month

    Where did you buy the maxton kit from please?
    I too am looking to purchase. Thank you for the video.

  19. Arazand says:

    Thanks for the laugh. Now, double sided tape. Yes, there are varieties strong enough to hold aerodynamic parts together. For example 3M make a number of aerospace adhesives some of which are rolls are tape. But if the question is "is it used on a lip kit i found for cheap on the internet?" the answer is likely No. Why use 3M Scotch-Weld tape that likely will cost more than the lip? And even they have a worklife that is short compared to a nut and bolt. The tape is used as a way to seal the joints and for sticking the parts together before its bolted or welded together in aerospace applications, even if they claim its strong enough to be used without nuts and bolts or conventional welding*. (*3M is not held responsible if your airplane suddenly disintegrate mid air.)

  20. redslate32 says:

    Answer: Yes, a functional front spoiler ('lip') will create a lower pressure underneath the vehicle. Pressure travels High->Low, so the effects of the lip are increased downforce over the entire vehicle.
    Applicability: Most aftermarket "aero kits" are predominantly/purely aesthetic, and will have negligible/no improvement on the vehicle (often times degrading performance).

  21. RR PLANB says:

    I'd never buy a RS over a Type R.. You would have to be insane.

  22. Louis Vaught says:

    To respond to the question at the beginning – yes, there are some aero features you can add that will be functional with only double-sided tape.

    Most of those work by streamlining flow that's coming off another part of the car, though.

    Holy shit they watch rugrats

    Just don't open a door

  25. Alasdair JCW says:

    If I'm being honest it doesn't work for me. The angular design of the factory bodykit has been lost and the car's gained a little bit of a double chin. That having been said I know other's will love it. That's what keeps life interesting.

    So happy to not have any background music! Never put it on!

    Nice Evo clip tho

    The self tapping screws are soo cringy…. WHYYY???

  30. Prakash Roy says:

    That poor evo

  31. They also forgot the space after the end of the sentence fail

  32. Tk1947 says:

    That wanna be evo

  33. David King says:

    That 3m tape is a lot stronger than you think. I use it at work to bond 80kgs glass panels together that form glass walls.

  34. LIPSHITZ whaaahahaha

    3:07 Just like Cheryl

    please make a video about the drift trike in the back pls
