How hard is it to take your wing off? When I trailer my car more than the 50 miles to local events I pull the wing off to save the 0.5-1 mpg, that adds up on a 1738 mile journey. At least your trailer made mad downforce. :rotfl:

I left it up to get some pics of the setup while driving. Since there was a lot of dirt out in the mid west. I put a strip of Plasidip along the leading edge of the wing to protect it.

The car sits at 2020 lbs
The Uhaul trailer is at 2360 lbs (now that's a heavy bitch)

So a little update

This is the beginning of the radiator duct and not the full project. I haven't designed the air exit out the hood yet but it is on its way.

So here are some pics

To help people out on their ducting, I add a Thread in Race Prep to exchange ideas on the topic
