always ran a wing... they were always made of clear lexan so maybe thats why you missed it... i tuned my buddies car last night tooo wit the reflex wing... its a mosler and it really helped him... his car was chattering in the rear and was over rotating... the wing worked nicely... on the mosler we left it at stock cutout... this was for mod... may need to be slightly cut down for stock... we mounted it using the rear holes...

Arch-I think Joe said around the end of the month, they sell out so quick. I think he just got a batch about a month ago.

Junior-Your results were similar to mine. For me the car feels completly planted and rotates more from the center point of the chassis vs the front pulling the car around. I too had large homemade lexan wings and when I got the first proto of this I didnt think it would be much differet from what I had. After testing back to back it was a noticable difference.

Also, I have noticed that the changing the height has huge effects on the down force. At the GSS a few weeks ago my stock car felt extremy dialed but I needed a little more steering. My wing was right on the height limit and close to being illegal on my f430 so trimmed 1mm of the wing and it gave me all the steering I needed and kept in safely under the limit.

Joe did a great job on the mold and the R&D on this product. It was not just slapped together, it closley resembles are wing design you would find on a real race car. You can tell alot of thought went into this little product.

The RR wing is a direct bolt in for the Mosler and F430GT. You do not need to drill holes into those bodies, just need to drill the holes in the wing itself..

After reading many reviews in this thread and talking with some locals, I decided to buy this wing. I got to try it out on my brand new lexus sc430 mod gt. My car was a 350z before and wouldn't hook up. I haven't tried the lexus body for over a year and slapped in on today with the lexan wing. My car is very planted to the track. It gave me more rear traction, less chance of traction roll, and I could drive the car very hard without any issues of chatter. Also, in low speed corners and 's' turns, the car rotated very fast.

I run modified at my track and have had some setup issues for the past few months. I ran the lexus and the wing today and my issues went away. This wing is really worth the 6 dollars because it gives more rear traction, less chatter, and you can drive the car a lot harder into corners and especially off of the straight away.

Thanks Reflex for another awesome product, you guys finally made my car work perfect after a long time I'll post a picture 2mo.

Driving is believing! I was pretty amazed by the changes it made to the handling - primarily the bump/chatter compliance which was unexpected.

On a side note, we are almost out but more on the way later this week!

I had to cut down my wing a bit to meet the height rule at a race this weekend. It made a huge difference compared to how the car felt in practice.

EMU - yah, I heard that from Cristian. What body were you running? Did you cut the wing on the cut line or the mold edge? How much did you have to cut?

After trying this out for a race night, I wouldn't say I'm blown away but I do think it's a good product. The drag produced seems to be almost negligible, I didn't register any change to the top speed the car attains on the back straight, but the downforce is noticeable. Not huge, but noticeable, and it helped when the track got bloody cold AND I was running on ages-old tires. Right now my wing sits right at 44-45mm off the ground, so if I want to raise it I'm going to have to cut it, not sure if that is a smart way to go. It would be more efficient though, in theory. Good stuff Reflex!
