From what I've read and what I did on mine was put a piece of some 90° angle steel or aluminum on that leading edge and rivet through it.
Yes I hope it will hold up now. I didn’t notice any problems up in speed, but I had to let go around 150mph due to the sheet metal failure. I’ll report back when I try it some moreYour solution will greatly assist in this matter from the research and the approach I did. From FF its just a piece of sheet metal folded back on itself to give it a little "rigidity." I simply riveted I think half inch box aluminum piece to the front edge of the aluminum panel.
Report back on your speeds and any other items you notice (i.e. how your alignment handles highspeed, top speeds, ...). I'm very interested as I would love to run mine when done at one of those airport runway open events one day.
There were I think a couple guys who broke 200 mph but would have to research their posts to refresh my memory.
Looks like this is a common problem on the GTM. Nice solution you got there. Did you notice any difference when closing the gap in the front? I have a small gap between the splitter and radiator enclosure for the moment.The first time I took my GTM to the track and I drove 120mph or higher I had the same problem. I used duct tape to fix the problem when I was at the track. I have a more permanent fix now.
