Time To Fly @ Big Willow w/ New Airfoil Design

With the Double race weekend right around the corner, a lot of preparation is necessary to handle two days of fierce competitive driving at 140+mph. A new airfoil design for faster cars at bigger tracks was implemented to satisfy the necessary downforce at higher speeds, without slowing down the chassis. 3/16 6061 Uprights and 4130 Steel Saddles were custom made for this wing design and fitmant on the S13 coupe trunk.
