Default Looking For JConcepts Buggy Wing in NON HIGH DOWNFORCE

Title says it all im looking for a Jconcepts wing or something equally as stiff that is NOT HIGH DOWNFORCE. Im putting together a tripple digit buggy and im having a hard time geting the right wing on the car. I race offroad so i know Jconcepts wings are the stiffest wings ive felt so far but the high downforce will cause me alot of problems for this project. Is there another brand that makes wings useing a HARD matterial jconcepts does??? Everything else on the market flex's to much for my application.

Any help would be great....

curious, what is a triple digit buggy? as for stiff wings, imo jconcepts is going to be the best plastic around. dont know about any other manufacturers who match the quality on a standard wing.

I would think that a triple digit buggy is a buggy that'll run at least 100MPH.

And then some. If you ever seen what they run on the side streets in the Magic City you'll be amazed.

Just dremel the lip of the wing till you reduce the downforce to your liking.

I thought about that but those scoops on the jcocepts are going to be a killer man.

Any other brands that sell STIFF plastic wings?

The stock AE RC8B wings are tough, in fact I don't think I have ever broken one.
