So who can point me in the right direction for actual use of the wing for the track?? Which one to go with? I know voltex would be the best bet, but i cant see myself spending $2500 on a wing any time soon.

Everybody's gonna say Aeromotions so that's what'll probably win out. I like the APR as well.

Aeromotions would be a better functional wing, but some may prefer the Voltex's 3d styling. I prefer the cleaner look of the Aeromotions, but that's all personal opinion. It's upgradable as well if you ever want to step it up another notch and go active. A bit cheaper then the Voltex if it's 2500$.

2 years ago you could of gotten a brand new Voltex wing for $1600 shipped. Now because of inflation and the rising yen, they cost $2500 shipped. If I ever sell any of the Voltex wings or any JDM wings for that matter, I'll be making profit.

Drastick does it use the same holes as the SSS wing? I wanna get one for the track but I want to swap it out for the street.

For the track, how do you balance the extra rear downforce from the wing? Doesn't it make the car much lighter in the front, particularly on high speed turns? Without something at the front to balance the extra rear downforce, isn't the car is going to get very understeery? Do you run a front splitter and/or canards to add front downforce?

I do believe with the SSS wing you have to drill at least 1 more hole.

Yea, you'll want a splitter to run with a wing or go with a mild angle of attack. I'll be throwing a splitter on when I get the car back, one of the hundreds of things I have to do to it.

Hopefully that one hole won't show when the spoilers are swapped...

What splitter do you plan on going with? APR?

Was thinking an APR splitter with some varis canards would be good for the downforce on the front end.

I was going to go with the APR one when I had my APR lip, but now I have the Voltex lip and will be making my own. Trace the lip, cut it out, make sure it's as long as the under tray and mount it on the inner structure only.
