Thanks is the Yok wing for more downforce or less downforce?

It has less downforce than the straight type wings they normally run, like the gw31 and xenon type-A. The curved gives better turn-in and more rotation in the corner.

Surikarn and Andy use Type-B, Hara used Type-A
All used Yokomo GW3.1 Curved, cut to the curved line.

Yeah totally, the Accord rotates awesomely in the corner, although can somtimes feel like it pushes slightly on entry, but this also depends on car setup and wing choice.

There are a few cosmetic differances between the Type-A and Type-B, Type-B has bigger sills, no winglet on the bootlid inbetween the wing struts and some other small details.
Im affraid ive not used the Type-B so cannot compare it to the Type-A directly, but i believe the Type-B has higher downforce and is for flowing tracks with good grip.

Is the Yok wing more of a downforce wing?

The straight one is high downforce, the curved one gives less downforce. From what I've tried and what others have told me I think a downforce chart would go like this:
Xenon type A/B straight High downforce/less corner rotation
Yokomo GW3.1 straight
Xenon Type A/B curved
Yokmo GW3.1 curved
Flap Type-RW
Flap Type-R/Xenon type C/D (curved lump)
Xenon type C/D (square lump) Less downforce/more corner rotation

This is what I've found through my testing, most of this was done on a very small carpet track. This may not be correct and feel free to add your input. Also if there are any other wings, write what you've found with them.

PS stew will do a lot of correcting to this!

I've got the Ride Honda Accord body (RI196). According to this: http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=376&id=5405 it is a good choice for asphalt rubber racing. Is it any good with the stock wing or I need to pick up some different type of wings. What do you guys recommend for asphalt rubber?
