Body Kits

By: Kalin

You can see them rushing on the races and everywhere around you. They are the things that will make your head spin. The speed and performance is one thing - here we talk also about style. They won't just add some new look to your car - they will remodel it in the way you want but you never thought is possible. There are the car body kits - preferable from the younger generation, enjoyed just as well from the others.

Body kit is anything that adds new look to your vehicle. It can be set on your front bumper, put on the hood or anywhere you like it to be. However you need to pick the right body kit for your needs.

The history of the body kits begins in 1961 when Jim Hall applies them in order for the aerodynamics to be improved. It works by pushing the car downward and let the air around it go on more efficient way. It gives the car ability to move fast with less interference. People today use this aerodynamic technology not only to improve their cars but to make them look good and impress whoever sees them.

After the popular movie "The Fast and the Furious" we began seeing many of these car body kits on the streets. They are usually used with a good paint and nice looking pictures making the car look really hot.

Today's tendency is in favor of one product called Lambo doors. These are sliding doors that turn up on 90o and are used usually on two doors cars. They add new look to the way the passenger steps out from the vehicle. They make the car look like expensive sport car. Their aerodynamics is very good too.

Aerodynamics is about how you let the wind go around your car with minimal effort. When done properly the air goes in the freest direction and by doing this it pushes down the car and cools down the engine.

When talking about it we have to mention the car spoilers. They will not only improve the ability of your car to move through the air efficiently but will add a really fast looking style to it. They are irreplaceable in drag races but will do fine just as well even if you want only to move around the town. They come in different shapes and sizes to match different car models.

The tendency on the market today is to build in the shapes and styles in the car on its production. This is at first done in the Japanese market but it is expanding all over the world. It gives both great look and performance of the car and a lower final cost.

Usually when people are installing car body kits they get a full package in order for everything to fit well. However when someone want to give his car a unique look he picks all the parts by himself. Of course when doing this he needs to consider all the parts to look similar and the market today give that option.

Roof scoops are another way to improve the aerodynamics of a car. Some people buy them only for show because they usually already have a good way to cool the engine and prevent overheating but in races roof scoops seem to be the best way to do that.

The toughest thing about car body kit is the choosing of it. From Auto direct save you can see that it is in fact the most fun part too. You can get the car body kits and conversions from there to give a new look and performance to your car.
