If you want to modify it, I suggest you to make it narrower at the back. It will be better with side wind.
Forgot to raise this question. I read that taper beyond 200mm from both sides is the most you can go. And if you make too much taper the flow will start to separate sooner. The same goes if you round the rear corners.

finaly have the time to post about the front splitter results. The fuel consumption increased by 5mpg or 0.5l/100km. The upside is that the high speed stability also increased

The citroplane v2 is reaching it's final form. The new mods include improved and smoothened underside, aero sideskirts, removed front mudflaps and finally shortened the tail by one meter with matched taper angles.
Got 46mpg which is very close to the original, yet currently it's getting cold here in Lithuania. During the tests it was 14C or ~57F outside. So quite hard to compare the results and to make matters even more frustrating during the tests either traffic, roadworks or mechanical problems kept interfering. Hope to do some more successful tests in the near future. And for now here are some nice pics that my friend made

Already read the thread but didn't post. Your work is awesome, the ZX looks great. I'm also interested in knowing what engine you have.

AX, say hello to your big sister ZX.
