Haha! Oops, I just threw it on a chassis with no top cover on, so no suspension...

Thats cool. Either way I'm going to order a couple of those wings as soon as they are on your site.

Yup, pre-orders are up! Pricing is $5.99. Thanks for the support!

EMU - you have a proto on the way. Welcome to the team! Rougher than the production units, but run it and let us know what you think!

Just made my pre-order.... 4 lexan wings for testing at Galpas Speedway here in Brazil.

I'm betting on the rear end improoved traction, 'cause our carpet track is a low grip surface... The only tires that work to avoid the traction roll are the atomic W-groove and V-patern 10º.... None of the PN tires works... Let's see how it handles in a few weeks!

I think it'll be another awesome product from Reflex...

Tried one of the wings on Grant's Mosler Mod GT car tonight.

It works well! Grant says there's less downforce than his angled slab spoiler, but I think there's also less drag due to the car rolling farther after I lift off for a turn. The amount of downforce is more than adequate for me driving Grant's car actually, I'd probably be one of the people who'd cut down the wing height to reduce downforce and drag even further.

You have a great product on your hands Joe, it'll sell well.

Cool man! I'm glad you guys liked it!

FYI, I pulled proto wing off my car at Kenon last night and let Grant try it out on his Mosler. I don't think he wanted to take it back off! Overall impressions were that it had good downforce and balance. Durability was also quite good.

To our team guys, you should be getting your proto wings today or on Monday. Let us know what you think! Production wings are scheduled to go out around the end of next week.

Nice wing! Cool paint job, I like the stickers.

I noticed some of the team driver had some new Reflex stickers, are these going to be available to the public?

I got my hands on the new wing just in time for the PN regionals held @ Inside Line Racing in Cupertino, CA thanks to Joe Chen. I ran my car with the stock spoiler until I was satisfied with my setup. After finding my setup I decided to mount the spoiler on the body which was a lexus sc430.

I painted and cut out the spoiler the night before. The spoiler was the pre production version and did require me to put my glasses on to see the cut line. Mounting the spoiler was very easy and just required a pen to mark where i was going to drill the holes and a body reamer to make the hole. Got it mounted in less then 5 minutes.

First lap with the spoiler on the car I felt a HUGE difference! It was like icing on the cake for my setup. I can now full throttle the car around the sweeper after ther straight away (pn regional layout) witout worrying that my car will spin out or hop. On high speed the car was very planted and low speed turns the car rotated very well. The track was a little bumpier then usual and the car was just planted going around the turns and not to mention very stable on the straight away.

Im not that technical in all the aerodynamics and the theories behind a spoiler but i can definately tell you that it made my car very easy to drive and very predictable. Most people argue that all a spoiler on a mini z was added weight to the rear to make it more stable but this spoiler is lighter then the stock spoiler. I am very impressed with the performance gains, looks and durability of the spoiler and look foward to having them on all my cars.
