  1. Spoilers vs diffuser vs wing

    Do as you say, not as you do? (apparently the forum is stroking out and double posting)
  2. Spoilers vs diffuser vs wing

    Right now, time is my biggest problem too. I'm actually in the process of fixing that so I can dedicate more time to some personal pet racing ventures like the Cage Gage and maybe this...

  4. What did it say on their dash? 80%??
  5. Spoilers vs diffuser vs wing

    3/16" birch is what we've been using too, and it is nice for breakaway in the event of contact, you can just keep on going. Once it is all bolted together, it is more sturdy than I thought it would be. I like the foam board & glass idea, although there is some added labor hours. Going to review the whole make-vs-buying a wing topic with my stepdad, he is a wiz with glass work. I need to research generally accepted construction practices VS some manufacturing ideas I have conjured up in my head, then see if the labor time merits doing it ourselves. If we can construct a light-but-strong functional 'glass wing and come in well under the $400 for the PCI SPMS P1 wing, I might be in the chumpy wing mfg business... sounds like a niche void to fill (or maybe not).

    First place I looked last night was Charlotte I'll post this up only bc I'm not interested (if it's even still available...) https://charlotte.craigslist.org/pts/d/carbon-fiber-nascar-wing/6340297608.html

    I totally understand (and support) the no carbon fiber rule, but the COT's can be picked up cheapppp relative to just about every other option, including the imitation ricer boy wings.

    Too funny. I just bought a copy of McBeath's book off of Amazon.

    More blade is an option, and might be the quickest to implement for Sebring December. We have good lap time data and butt-feel data to see if there was a change. Then I could switch to a wing and hit up a Chin day for further testing of all 3 on the same day. Edit: I am super into learning and testing the aero stuff, but time (and money of course) is a finite resource, so making big changes can be a PITA. Ultimately I think a wing is where we need to be, but we wont know unless we spend time and $$$ to figure it out. Time is more important than money honestly. If you have enough money, you can buy someone elses time LOL.
  10. Spoilers vs diffuser vs wing

    Yup, I found the flyingfoam.com place - buying a core and glassing it would be the "rabbit hole", which I am not opposed to, I just didn't know if there was a cost effective (time vs $$$) option already out there that I was not seeing. The SPMS wing was the only legit glass one I could find... it is right at that make vs buy price point, but it does look nice... Camaro is def. ready for more something in the rear - it is to the point that it's too free in the high speed sections and we are leaving lap time on the table, so time to add some speed creep since I have the points left over and I cant use it to buy fuel. If I can't go 2 hours, might as well make it fast as sheeot...
  11. Spoilers vs diffuser vs wing

    Great thread. So before I go down this rabbit-hole, are their any "real" commercially available wings that are made from fiberglass? Chump rule says no carbon fiber, which is cool, but it looks like anything that seems to be of race-quality and not ebay/amazon special that will disintegrate over 80mph is all made from C.F...
  12. Yea, but then it would go 2 hours on fuel, you big greedy V8 racer you Haven't you figured it out yet, racers want parity/control/benefits/advantages/domination for their platforms, just not other peoples platforms.
  13. You forgot to add in the SC300/400... a platform that is capable of FTD at many types of tracks and can go 1:55 with some smart driving
  14. HANS or similar needed

    Hopefully the seller is reputable and it hasn't been "tested" before you buy it... belts & a hans are two things that you might not be able to easily spot if they have been in a crash.
  15. Ultrashield Spec Miata seat

    Thank you sir! I thought the same, if I had a use for it I would have snagged it!
