im no aerodynamicist(?) but its my understanding that it would help create more downforce if alll designed correctly.

if it would help why dont they have it?

Scroll down.

They do offer a gurney flap for it.

Revived from the dead! Any real testing or feelings on the now available Ebay wings? They "look" to have come a long way in the last 5 years, and the decent looking ones are about 250-300. been waiting for a year for a used legit APR, but I haven't seen one yet.. I was fingers crossed that with the release of the new units, that someone would be parting with their 200/250. wut the hell, everyone is as poor as I am and not stepping up?

Building my splitter now and a 800 dollar wing is out of the question atm...at the next lots of moments.

Link to some that you're looking at?

Alternatively, if you can scare up a COT wing (they still surface from time to time), i'll be selling my FM NB mounts for that shortly.

The COT wings are for some reason bringing in serious cash right now??? The last three I've watched, sold for more than 600.

Supply and demand. Supply is drying up. I've seen a couple go in the $400 range in the last 12 months though. I did pay $650 for mine, though.

See if you can get the seller to give you a couple answers to the following questions:

1) Element "depth"
2) Mount width
3) Endplates removable?

Pics can be deceiving but that looks... kindof not terrible? Definitely require some effort to get it to where it needs to be, but if it's essentially a dead nuts APR copy of some sort, it could be easy.
