out of curiosity, do you feel like a child driving around in it with the way it looks? I could never daily a car that looked like that, maybe I'm just old fashioned.

You guys must not get out to the track much if the wing has such a significant influence on how the car looks lol, or maybe everyone runs no aero?

Most ppl wouldnt daily drive this car maybe thats why? lol either way Im not about to pull it off and fill trunk holes on brand new paint job lol

Thanks. Love Fab, and that S2k has a 2jz in it. Check out Real Street's s2k, 9.4 on stock sealed motor now that's impressive as hell

I think I love everything about that car. I would repaint/wrap the cage but leave it. Of course, I'm only 5'8" so I don't have much to worry about as far as hitting stuff goes. And pushing 450hp that wing is probably functional.

I'm probably going to drop the stock seat by removing the rails, then I might clear the cage.

I'm sure the wing is functional as it one pricey ----------er, whether I make use of it is another story, although 260kph feels amazingly stable lol
