I may be repeating myself, but I wanted to mention that if you have too much drag and too much rear traction, Joe says that cutting these wings down is not an issue at all. The design is very efficient and taking out some of the height of the wing is not going to destroy your finely tuned setup, you'll just get less understeer.

Too much rear traction is never enought! I'm still usin 20º front tires, and can try the 10º... But cut the wing... it's something I'm afraid to do, 'cause I can't go back if I cut it too much.

I'll try the first less agressive angle... I think it works great, reducing the drag while keeping the rear end planted.

Thanks Brian... I always see your posts, and it's always good ideas!

Guys, I'm really glad you like it. Keep in mind that the wing is actually molded "tall" with a spacer so you don't have a weird edge where the mold ends. I cut mine down to 6mm tall on the sides, and 4-5mm tall on the rear. Thanks for all the great feedback! Keep it coming!

I like it, Great down force & tunable!



Rear end is so planted that my Stock car needed to trim out 1 mm off the wing in order to balance the under-steer so now it turns on a dime.
Mod. Car was perfect in trying to keep the Rear end from less over-steer due to high torque motor out of corners.

so i ran the reflex wing for the first time last night on my f430 ferrari... i must say i was very impressed with it but in a different way then most people have been stating here... i always felt a had a very good competitive setup and never had any issue wit down force as i have alwyas built very good rear lexan wings using very thin pieces of carbon fiber for the base...

the one thing that i can say about this wing is it made my car feel clean... locked in... the biggest problem i would always have wit running mod on a 03 chassis is no matter what the rear would always wonder on big powerful highspeed turns... this was not the case after running this wing... i cut about a mm off the stock cutout hieght and i ran it with mounting it on the rear holes and my car felt amazing... no understeer or lack of rotation due to excessive rear downforce...

i really like what you guys have done with this product... excellent work... this will always be part of my setup...
