first of all, you allready have about 1200 pounds of pressure on your back wheels. some cheesy-*** wing isn't going to achieve anything except getting flamed on.

A big *** wing wont do a DAMN thing unless you're going like 80mph. Wings are pointless even for autocross. Speeds are too slow to make a difference, except to create drag and extra weight that will slow your car down.

i think it's more like +30mph for the wing to be of any use. but yeah the honda tech guys must really know something, otherwise why would you want to generate down force on the rear of a fwd car. (i'm being sarcastic)

For drifting, I don't think spoilers are as important as other things like your tires, suspension, etc. It really just becomes a cosmetic part when all is said and done.

I'd say you should probably save up and get something that would really help...

Saw this . . .had to quote it . . . .HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! Man DJ's gonna crush you!

GT wings . . .spoilers in general are purely cosmetic in 11 out of 12 cases. They just simply don't do enough for a street car to be effective in any situation. You have to understand something called vehicular dynamics. You can have an ironing board on the back of your car, but if more air goes under your car than on that wing, then you are negating the purpose of having a wing!

YES I KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT, THIS IS WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING!

Just had to throw that in there because I've heard lots of excuses when it comes to reasonings as to why people put these massive diving boards on the backs of their cars.

Anyhow, especially with drifting, on a car thats more street driven, ESPECIALLY on your average car that's non-chassis-tuned . . .you're going to see little to NO advantages of using a wing when drifting. It'd would be solely for aesthetics and in my opinion would be in poor taste.

Once again, even though a wing will collect and utilize the forcing air from a 30mph sprint, I will have to bring back up the notion of vehicle dynamics and body tuning. 10 out of 12 of your average "racer" doesn't know anything about those and thus are simply putting a wing on because "Race Cars" have them and that's what they think will look cool or make their car better, when in actually it does neither of the two.

I hope you're being facetious . . . .if you're not. . . .we have to talk.
