Default Tamiya wings to choose

Dear for anyone:

In fact i have to race with GT body in 17.5 blinky spec class on a medium size track.
Even the rear wings are restricted to choose between these 3 from Tamiya: 84371, 54457 and 54458.
Could somebody help me out to choose 1 of them, please?

Best regards

84371 is a off road wing
54457 is a lexan wing but the picture sucked and it is hard to tell what it really looks like.
54458 has no pictures.
This is going to be able to help.

I am looking to run 54458 with hsv and 54457 with nsx.
What do you think, my pal?

I would run the first wing you linked if you need a lot of rear downforce, otherwise I would run the 2nd or 3rd one. I have run the 3rd one but in carbon print on my Tamiya Toyota SC body and NSX for TCS GT1 and GT2 classes. My wing: http://www.rcmart.com/tamiya-53470-c...?cPath=438_880

I don't think that need so much downforce, due run 17.5 blinky on a medium-large size track.
How about 2nd, isn't the lowest 1?
Thanks for help!

It's a good tuning option just in case if the traction is low. Keep one in your pit box. I also ran my wing with max downforce setting. You do that by how you mount the "wedge" under the wing mounts.

No, the track is clean, the traction is medium to high.
How about the 2nd?

I think the 3rd would have slightly more downforce than the 2nd since the 3rd mounts higher and has downforce across the whole wing. The 2nd mounts lower and only has major downforce towards the edges of the wing. I think it would come down to how you want it to look on your car. So if you don't want the first wing, then get the 2nd and 3rd and switch between the two and see what you like best.

I think the 2nd would look better on the HSV, but that's just my opinion. I like the looks of that HSV body.
