The Verus Engineering Dive Plane (Canard) Kit adds front-end downforce without the necessity of moving the front splitter further forward. Produced from 2×2 twill, pre-preg carbon, and cleared a matte finish, the units are a combination of function and form for your Focus RS.
Utilizing state-of-the-art analysis software during the R&D process, we were able to extract more performance for the given build volume; increasing downforce generated from the dive planes.
This dive plane kit was designed for owners looking to shift aero balance forward to help aid in balancing out a large rear wing or diffuser.
- Reduce Lift (Increase Downforce)
- Shift Aero Balance Forward
- Allows for Fine Tuning of Aero Balancing (Forward Biased)
- Help Seal Sides of Car
- Evacuate Air From the Front of the Wheel Well
- CFD Optimized Design
- Pre-Preg, Autoclave Cured, Carbon Fiber Composition
- Matte, UV Resistant Automotive Grade Clear
- Stainless Hardware Used Throughout
- Made in the U.S.A.
Dive planes increase front end grip at high rates of speed and can be used to help balance out diffusers or other rear-end aerodynamic devices. They work by creating high pressure on the top side of the dive plane, and low pressure on the bottom side. Our units were also designed to increase front wheel well evacuation which reduces lift in this area, further increasing downforce generated.
The dive planes were designed for owners looking for more front end downforce than our Ventus 1 kit. The goal of the Ventus 1 Package for the Ford Focus RS is to improve its aerodynamic performance over the factory. The rear diffuser and front splitter were designed together to improve downforce and equal the aerodynamic balance of the factory RS. The dive planes further help the Focus RS by sealing the sides of the car, evacuating the front wheel well, and increasing front end grip. All the parts in the Ventus 1 Package work well as a system to improve the aerodynamics of the Ford Focus RS. The dive planes can be added to improve aero balance if the car is understeering into high speed turns.
