I checked the RI MKII we have in stock and they too have the new style wing. The ridges are more for strength and also streamlining the air flow a bit, but more for strength than anything else

I'll check on the few MKIII we have left tomorrow to see if they too have the new and improved wing

Than I believe SpeedTech got newer batch of MKII. The old MKII (like the one I can find in LHS) is with 175mm wing with no strength rib.

Btw, according to JP RC magazine's article, you will need to have different setup with 190mm wing since it will change the driving characteristic. With the same setup it will only get the car slower.

I believe which means you can freeup the rear mechanic grip by using smaller toe-in, smaller camber, higher roll-center, harder spring. With bigger wing you should able to get the same traction at high speed, but at low speed the rear will be freeup, resulting better low speed steering.

I haven't try my GW3.1 wing yet, probably on Sunday. I wish it works as I predict.

Ok, I'm going to break my Ride abstentation (sp?)....

I'm gonna order one of the stratus with an order from speedtech, now at the moment over here in the uk only the Mk1 and 2 are BRCA legal for stock (by being commercially avaliable in the shops). means the 3 and accord are out of the equation.

Which one of these is better suited to the largeish tracks we have over here?
Also I'll be running 27t stock.

As an example, my local track
Ashby
if it helps, tend to gear in the 5.5-5.6 fdr range for here.


Regards
Ed

The MK have different downforces from Low (1) to high (3).
The Accord has more of an "All Around" Body with middle of the road downforce. Many have compared it to the Mazda 6. I actually prefer it over the Mazda.

So that means a MK III would be the best choice for lowgrip conditions? Better then the Accord? I just used a MK II now but itīs the version with the old wing. Iīm using a Flap highdownforce wing now but I still need more rear grip sometimes. What would be the best choice for a better wing? The new version Ride wing or is the Gokuraku 3.1 still the best? Whatīs about the Flap RW? Sometimes we have very low grip conditions and rear traction is the problem there.

The new ride 190mm wing(actually 185mm) is very similar in performance to the Yok 3.1 straight wing.. . . the newer wings give the MKII/III & Accord a really planted feel.. a little bit more confidence building than the Original 175mm wing..

Thanks Dave.
That means I donīt need the GW 3.1 as the new Ride wing is very similar.
Just got an Accord and a MK III with the new wing yesterday.

Next race is a very low grip track. We will see which one of the bodies will work the best there.

I think the Accord might be your best bet
