It will take some time for production on several items. My guess is the wing will be first followed by tires.

I think the shark fin is a good idea. As for the looks, I don't think it looks bad. And considering when the new truggy bodies came out, at that time I thought they were the fugliest thing ever! Now I really like them, and the cars that don't have them kinda look outdated. I only see the shark fin really helping on the high speed turns. But I have never driven one so I cant say. But any improvement means I like them.

Possibly lol. He made a switch of tires during one of his quals to better suit the track. Tires a a tried and trued way of tuning. All the new aero stuff JC is making is really awesome. Help push the development across the board.
