A mass produced simple belly pan or air dam could be pretty profitable . Aero wise, and cash wise
I was thinking the same thing, but as a business there are a lot of liability issues to worry about. If you or I build a grill block and belly pan and the car overheats and blows a head gasket it is our own fault. If somebody buys a car that they expect to perform flawlessly and the same happens then it is a big problem. Or if a belly pan comes loose and takes out a brake line... sometimes keeping it "simple" (not that ECU reprogramming is simple) is the best way.
