Hey mate

I ran one at the EC Nitro GP on the weekend. Best thing I found is I didnt have to cut out the one that came with my stratus! The wing is super strong and the car was very stable down the main straight there.

pros:they do not flex at high speed, thus they keep the wing shape, killer down force.
cons: they break easily in a crash.
I think advantage is making carbon fiber wings in both 190mm and 200mm widths. these will be alot stronger than the plastic wings plus you get the extra bling bling factor

They are brittle in a crash & also are not legal (too high) if you have to worry about rules.
