Thumbs up Love the swan neck mount!

Feel the love for those!

BUT, over here we have to keep the whole thing under the roof height including mount.

With the AoA these things run, how high is the rear of the airfoil at its highest, relative to the top of those mounts? IOW, is this a real-world problem? If they have to mean the wing comes down a bit, will that negate the better efficiency of the mount?

As a secondary, at 64 inches, that seems to be hard up against our 1600mm width limit - do you have a precise measurement of the wing (including end plate, bolt heads, etc? If it is over 1600, is the wing trimable, as in with a saw?

Thanks Emelio

Last three of the FRP GT-250 wings will be in stock in a few days. After these last ones, no more FRP wings, only the full carbon version that runs about $300 more. These three are cut to 64" (NASA max), with brackets on 31" centers (Miata frame rails).
