how effective do you guys find a wing to be if a car is spinning a little on the top end?????? does moving the wing up to catch more air usually help in most cases????

Wings add weight. I was told the one I have (Mid South) strutless adds downforce egual to an additional 400lbs. I have talked to a few people that said they picked up some MPH and ET when they removed theirs. I will be removing mine to see what happens.

If you have a wing on your car, you better be able to run 7.20 or quicker. Nothing worse than seeing slow cars with wings. :p

i guess 1/2 of outlaw10.5 cars should remove their wings:smt033:SHTF and every SSO car in NMRA.

Rear wing adjustments definitely have an effect on tire spin. All wings are not created equal and react differently.

Our old style "flat" 14" pro stock style wings added about 30-40 lbs at 1 degree. If you adjusted them all higher across the car....each hole upward was worth 30-40 lbs, just the center of the car...slightly less. The new "wickerbill" design can yield more downforce.

Remember.....all gains are progressive.....they start to show on data about 330' and increase all the way to the finish.

Should add that the size of a wickerbill can affect downforce, as can the size, shape, and contour of the spill plates.
