Default How do you attach the wing? Protoform Mazda 6

I used to run on road forever ago and never actually attached a wing before so basically this is my first on road body with a wing. Very noob question just looking for the simple awnser!

There should be a pair of nuts and screws, make holes on the body and wing dimples and attach.

I always position mine using the rear most body holes and front most wing holes because im a noob and i am looking for all the rear grip i can get, further back its positioned being more down force is the general principle.

Just remember to use something to shim your screws under screw head, like piece of lexan or plastic shim.

Hobby shop?

Protoform screws are a bit small on the head and can tear easily / flex on wing. I usually use a countersunk 3mm screw with cone washer for larger area.

^Very good advice here. I lost a race before for not doing that, wing popped off one side... couldnt even make the car trail straight when braking heavy before corner.
