Will using one cause understeer?

a couple of our guys are using them with pretty good results. I'm still using the plastic wing that came with my McLaren.

Two things:
1) they come flat so you don't have to bend the wing up very high if you don't need the rear traction plus the extra wind drag.
2) I always make sure the rear is very well planted and then I can always add front steering if I need it.

I like this wing you had the link to and also the Reflex wing.

fyi...

after trying this wing I found yes it creates understeer, but it can be adjusted to a lower downforce setting.

so if I find myself on a track where the rear is getting loose? I can adjust more down force easy enough!!!

I just dont know how many times I can adjust it without it snapping.....

Currently working some wing designs, I should have them released soon!
