Who sales these? My LHS does not. I can check with them to see if they can order them .Will the Accord type II have the best corner speed?And should I run the stock wing or go with another?

As the type B (2) is for more flowing tracks I'd say it would carry more corner speed but with less turn-in, all dpends on your car setups as well.
You can get them from speedtech r/c or precision rc although last time I checked they were out of stock. Also rainbowten if you want to order from Japan, they have loads of other cool stuff as well.
Yeah I would change the std wing, all 3 of those online shops carry stock of the good wings, rainbowten pretty much has every wing, xenons, flaps, yokomo etc.

Anyone used the Xenon A type (flat) wing and the Flap RW wing? I have the RW wing and i have used it but i am wondering what are the characteristics of the Xenon wing? Also what is the width of the wing and for you UK lot is this wing legal for BRCA use ?

Cheers, Charles

What is the difference between Yokomo Touring Car Racing Wing Set Type 3.1 (SD-GW31) and TC Wing Set Type III (ZR-GW3).

Ok thank you.I have been racing 2.5 years now and have run pretty much what is available in the lhs and what the local fast guys run.So I don't fully know and understand how different bodies work.I am wanting something with the most steering I like the Ride's accord and haven't seen the excel bodies.Are they pretty much the same?Same goes for the wings.If I go with an aggresive body for turn in will a high downforce wing help or hurt.I will probably go with the Ride RI 196 TSX ver B(this is the same as accord right?).Which wing will compliment this body the most on the type of track I run on.

I think the 3.1 is wider than the 3. I believe the 3 is 170mm and the 3.1 is 180~185ish... I believe

this is the version-b
the rear deck lid between the wing posts is notched, the molded-in rear deck wing is more defined, and the front lower lip sticks out a little more.

This was according to the older JMRCA rules so anything in the 170-175 mm area. When the rules changed for a wider wing the 3.1 was made.

I can't really tell what version of Ride Accord he ran from the pics I've got but he ran it with a Yokomo curved wing.
