ACS 1VM C8 Front Splitter
Corvettes were made with aerodynamics in mind and the C8 Corvette, in particular, was meant to wear a front splitter, so why are you going without one on your 2020-2021 Corvette? The ACS 1VM C8 Front Lip Splitter was created as an intermediate splitter between the entry-level 3-piece OEM Z51 Splitter and GM’s 5VM Splitter, so it’s more aggressive than the Z51 spoiler, but a bit more conservative than the 5VM. It’s a one-piece design that eliminates visible seams and also foregoes the winglets on each corner to give it a sleek, wraparound fit.
The 1VM C8 Front Splitter is made from PC Composite which is a manufacturing process generally reserved for high-volume production parts. These black molded splitters offer high strength and durability, as well as resistance to heat which makes them perfect for mounting on the front of your C8 Corvette.
These intermediate 1VM splitters are finished in Carbon Flash Metallic (CFZ) to match the other Carbon Flash pieces on the car. Installation is identical for both base Corvettes equipped without a front splitter, or those that are equipped with the Z51 splitter. The 1VM utilizes the same mounting holes as the OEM Z51 splitter so its just a matter of removing the T15 screws already on the front of the car, adding the splitter with just four to five screws in place but not tight so you can properly position it, and then tighten those up and then add the final screws to complete the install. ACS offers an installation video on their YouTube channel that covers the process and provides an easy reference guide.
ACS Composite offers the 1VM C8 Front Splitter for $499 and shipping is free.
C5-C8 Corvette Jacking Pucks
Experienced Corvette owners know that jacking pucks are a must and you can’t assume that your local tire shop or repair facility has them. Jacking pucks offer a secure and solid lifting point and without them, you can do costly damage to your Corvette’s rocker panels. ACS Composite offers Jacking Pucks that fit with all OEM factory side skirts and ACS Composite Corvette side rocker panels. The best news is that they are left in after install, so you can set and forget once they are in place.
ACS Composite’s Jacking Pucks are machined from solid heavy-duty aluminum and are coated in Red, Black, or Blue metallic finish. They can be installed on all C5, C6, C7 and C8 Corvettes and fit all models from Stingray and Grand Sport to Z06 and ZR1. If you’ve seen those horror stories of cars falling from lifts due to jacking or lifting the car from the wrong points, the colored Jacking Pucks provides an easy sight reference for those unfamiliar with the process.
Installation is a snap with a supplied Allen wrench, no drilling is required. Once installed, the Jacking Pucks offer a 2.5″ diameter lifting surface. They are just 0.5-inches thick and can also be easily removed. ACS offers an installation video as well.
The set of four Corvette Jacking Pucks from ACS Composite cost $99.00 and shipping is free.
