  • decent budject wings?

    Toying with the idea of building a front splitter with some left over aluminite I have laying around.

    only problem is that I know that I'll need a wing for the rear... part 2 of that problem is that I don't have $600 to drop on a wing right now either!

    are there any other options for a functional rear wings at a decent price?

    doesn't have to be composite.

              In the realm of wings, APR wings are pretty budget. I'll probably end up using an APR GTC-300.

                  If you don't have class rules, go wider. You can run the wing at less angle of attack to get the same downforce as a small element with less drag(generally).

                        Its hard to see but looks OK. My rules for SM say it can't be wider than the widest part of the car, and it can't extend further back than the body of the car looking down from the top. Think that 67" will fall into spec for a s14?

                          Just take a tape measure to your sideview mirrors and see for yourself.

                          If you guys want a cheap wing in the ~61" width, check out the 61" ABS wings on eBay. They're about $120-130ish shipped.

                            it would be hard for me to justify spending $1,200 + on a wing... IDK about everybody else, but thats some change for a guy supporting a family...

                            maybe if I was actually able to win money with it, then yea... thats just me tho!

                            how high would it need to be?

                              Once you get the wing up about 12-14" or higher and at the back of the trunk you're not going to see much benefit to keep raising it. At least with a hatchback the flow is probably good all the way down to about 8-10" above the trunklid at its back edge, a coupe probably needs a bit more.
