Hello there,

What would happen with my car when i use the wide bumper instead of the foam bumber?
In what way would it effect the handeling of my car?

If you completely remove the foam bumper and instead use the hard plastic wide bumper, you will have a slight increase in front downforce due to the airflow underneath the car, pushing the front down.

Talking about front downforce, in my opinion the wide bumper should be improved a little bit studying proper shapes and aisles such as Capricorn and the new Kyosho R4 Evo did.

Is there any study in progress on this topic?

The wide bumper will lower the air resistance in the front and lead the air more smooth into the car.

-overall air resitance will decreased
-downforce (with front balance) will be increased

Yes, we do :) It is one more part to go even a little faster.
