Default rear wing does it matter

Can anyone tell if the rear wing of the shell, helps by changing it locaton either more forward or bach, or even more extreme cuting out sections?

generally speaking, this is roughly wat will happen...

move rear wing forwards => more twitchy (oversteer)
move rear wing backwards => more stable (understeer)
smaller side stabalizers => more twitchy
larger side stabalizers => more stable
more wing area => more drag => more grip => less top speed
more wing angle => more drag => more grip => less top speed

Yes! very much so.....to test...buy yourself a Proform Dodge 2.0. Try the wing without the two side holes cut out and then try again with them out! You will notice the difference!
