My eyes are not the best but is that the stock wing minus the little bolt on foils? Or what wing is that?

That doesn't look like the stock wing to me. Even if you took off the spill plates, the stock wing seems bigger than that.

I Think it is the std wing, the Vectra one is "curved" as are most of the other proto wings.

Yeah, your right.....my older Vauxhall is curved....but pics on Proto's site show it straight....maybe it is just the standard wing without the spill plates. Thats what my proto Alfa would lokk like without them.

Its the standard wing minus the vertical plates. The Afla wing is identical to that. For some reason there is an angled up portion on the bottom of the wing that seems to generate lift....

Tower Hobbies has them as being "ON ORDER" and they are essentially a distributor...so that would be the first place I would look. They should have them in stock very soon. I'm not sure how they got them this week before the distibutors can even list them in stock? My LHS , which is good about being able to get stuff quick can't get them yet???

I know this thread is about the Mazada 6, but can someone comment on the the "New" Losi Lexus IS300. The boddy is suppose to have quicker response for tight tracks. Anyone use this??

I think my LHS ordered them from Horizion so have your LHS check with them. Its easy for us to get most of the stuff as we are 1 day shipping from Great Planes(aka Tower Hobbies) and Horizion. Dont know what to tell you I called them they looked it up and saw it was in stock an ordered some.
