Default Protoform Molded Wings

Has anyone tried these? I recently asked for feedback about the PF Altima body, and a few people complained in general about the wings on a few cars (Stratus 2.0, Alfa 2.0, as well as the 190 Altima).

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Complaining about the alfa 2.0 wing? Plus is changing the wing even legal?

I haven't seen any rules regarding wings, other than dimension and height requirements. Technically, you can put on any wing, as long as it's not to long, too wide, higher than the roof line, and the side dams are not bigger than the dimensions specified in the rulebook(ROAR 2003 rules, section 3-29 through 3-35).

i know 2 or 3 people that tried these and they never lasted more than a few races. since they have no flex, they crack very easily.

That is exactly what I was gonna say luke, I've seen brand new wings literally crack to pieces after a few runs, this was the white one.

Default altima

i run the altima body with a ftTC3 on carpet & asphalt, i love the body. it gives me more rear downforce than the stratos.

i ve run the protoform wings and they suck all it takes is for someone to clip it or flip over and the crack in half and if it is cold outside foreget about it .
as far as the rules go for wings you can run what ever falls in the dimensions they specify in the rule book so if you have a stratus and want to run a alfa rear wing from losi you can as long as it is below roof hight and the side fins, the hight , length, and width fit in the jig or measurements.
