It is more possible when using the outer hole on the arms. I have only used them 1 time - in Brazil. There was a tripple on the back straight that was hit at full speed, but I never poped a CVD even flat landing it. Stange. Maybe because I usually use -3' camber?

Default wing mount

This may be stupid question, but can you use any other wing mounts, or must you use the matrix wing mount? Thanks

Hi, I don't see a way to use any other wing mount than the stock unless it's similar.

mugen will work but you have to use cen post and shave a couple things and on the shocktower you have to use the bottom wing mount hole and that slot thats there you run a nut and bolt with a washer and its built like a tank

you can put the bolt in the very top hole with a washer and torque em down and they should last for a long time

After bolting the adjustable wing mounts I have drilled an extra hole each side and screwed in a pair of extra screws with nylocks to lock the mounts so the holes won't strip on a hard landing...

you might want to seal the edges of your shock towers with CA to help prevent cracking,
