No great pics. Standoffs are a metal support bracket that go from the bumper support typically to the flat splitter/undertray. Again, aero is a little beyond typical street/track, but it was important in the speed/value equation. But on a track car, standoffs allow us to knock off a splitter without taking the bumper with it - or vice versa. So many guys mount a lip to the bumper, then and undertray to the lip - then when they go off track and catch it on something, it takes off the splitter, lip, and half the bumper, if not oil cooler and radiator as well...
