Just look where it bumps out on the front wheels. That is the "fin"

Do these fins really make a great difference? I think the fins look ugly so I only will use them if they will do any good to the handling of the car.
I just finished my Mazda but had no chance for testing.

I just tried the mazda 6 last weekend and did not like it. There wasn't enough steering so I went back to the alpha 2.0. I cut the back of the wing way down on the mazda and still no more steering, then I took out the middle fins on the spoiler still no more steering. Good luck with that body.

What up Aaron, your set up must really be bad, lol. Try running it with no wing, should let the car rotate a little more, lol. You should come up to Cleveland with Kevin this weekend. Holla!
