After an extended production time, due to the Holidays, the Archetype Racing Vengeance 'normal' (without winglets) and Track Spec (with 1" winglets, pictured) will be back in stock this week. Out of this run of a dozen, two pairs are already sold. They go fast! These aren't your run of the mill, made overseas canards. These are meticulously created, right here in Seattle, WA. Attention to detail, like the weave being laid at opposing 45 degree angles on the left and right canard. The gloss units are hand polished to a show finish. 6 layers of carbon weave on the main canard and 7 on the mounting flange and winglet. These canards are robust! There are three viable options for mounting. 1) Through bolt with provided stainless hardware (you'll need to remove the fascia) 2) Riv nut with provided rivnuts and bolts. (fascia will not need to be removed) 3) 3M heavy duty automotive double sided tape with provided adhesive promoter and IPA wipes. Visit archetyperacing.com Let me know if you have any questions. And thank you Matt Paige for the pictures!

What are you using for mounting hardware on the S197?
Typically, 10 mm longer, thread Stainless Button Head Hex Drive hardware is provided. The hardware will fit inside the machined pocket to prevent the head of the bolt wearing off through use.

For splitters requiring support rods (either 1 or 2 pairs) they are also supplied in machined billet aluminum. Carbon fiber is also an option. All of the support rods I supply are custom built to spec, in partnership with Fully Torqued Racing. Pete and the team over there produce a great product. Pricing is totally transparent on the website and I do my best to keep cost at 1:1 with FTR, to make shopping easier on my customer's end.

Any canards available for the S197? There has been some renewed interest on splitters of late, so good to post that. Out of curiosity , is there a discount for TMO members?

Thanks , as I am in decent shape on my splitter , but great to know there is a source if I need another in the future. The canards are of interest now , though.

Canards are financially tough. Let me rephrase that. Canards manufactured in the USA are financially tough.

I'm currently in the process of having a 991.1 GT3 scanned for the purpose of canards. That car, at the price point current manufacturers are producing/selling canards for, I can easily make a better or comparable part, and make my R&D and tooling cost back. There's a known market price I can base my figures on.

S197, I don't feel is as good of a move. I can't be certain that I will recoup the R&D and tooling cost. Possibly, if I spend more time in the S197 portion of the forum, it may change my perception.

Thanks for the reply and are all your products done in CF, or do you make some items in Fiberglass to reduce the price?

Given that you're a supporting vendor here, no reason why you couldn't start a thread asking for market feedback to see how many would be interested if you made them - maybe post a poll. You could also ask in the FB group, but you'd probably want to point people to your thread here to have them chime in to keep all your results in one place and easy to count (FB replies are a pain in the ass to try and tally). Might require you to post a price range for them so they know if they'd be in or not.

I think the market for S197 is going to swell in the short term and slowly decline over a longer term: They're still a very cost effective race solution, so more of them are getting to the track as their values depreciate. Around here, for example, the local nasa Super Touring series has at least 4 participating S197 mustangs (including the blue 25 pictured above and at least a couple more in the works), but no S550 cars, and that series has been dominated as of late by S197. Same for the American Iron guys. I expect in the future to see more of a shift, but its always a bit disheartening to see that lots of vendors focus on the S550, but paddocks are filled with S197 cars that don't have a lot of options available to them. Flipside is, being that those cars decline in value, the budgets of their operators can be a fickle thing to navigate.

That said, we've chatted about the splitter kits and I think those options you posted above are killer. I didn't realize "blue's" splitter was one of yours, I'll have to look at it more closely soon, they're having a lot of sucess in that car.

Can some of the potential buyers chime in about size restrictions for the classes you run?

For those of us who are unrestricted might want them as large as can be supported by the bodywork. And possibly from blind or bracketed support.
