Rory, did UMP make this wing? Cliff at UMP searched his rafters to find the parts to make mine and told me that was it for wings. He said if he didn’t find the parts he wasn’t going to build it. I have seen people talk about drag and slowing the car down but we haven’t noticed any difference in accelerating to the top of 4th. Cliff told us how to set it up and we followed his instructions. With the wing the car is no longer “skatey” above 94mph so we will race with it for now on.I talked to UMP about this a little over a month ago when I was trying to get one made. They were pretty firm that their wing was designed to provide stability at higher speeds and fully functional. My Chenowth never raced with one but my partner was fixated on putting one on. I tried to dissuade him as it is just not a good fit for our car because of the years raced even though I love the look. You of course got the last wing parts available and UMP will not make anymore. I had to go to some aircraft buds I know in Torrance to get it made so it is no longer a $500 investment, but it's his dime on this one. I see a lot of photos with those wings hanging off from race damage, so that and the drag it might cause were my other concerns. I am on the fence on this one at least in our case. I conceded since it is easily removable.
Of course your car needed one to make it the great car that it represents and it looks Awesome. Really nice work on the car, can't wait to see the final lettering and finish details.
