Just finished the body, DaleEPP did you realize those blue screws you send with the body is a living HELL with this new slotted hole.

What gives sending screws which are totally different from those you use on the Protoform site ??

Any suggestions as to how to accurately mount the wing, I do not have a 1/8 or access to one to use its wing screws ?

Team Titan makes those BIG screws. And sells them separately.

My RS4 bodies came with them

For anyone. Do you still have to cut the wing down below and also inside the cut lines for ROAR spec like you have to do with the Stratus? Also the end plates are not used do to the ROAR specs. Do you use them for extra stiffness? Scott, any pics of your wing with the cutouts? Do you recommend cutting out the entire rear window? We have been doing this for a number of years now the same as Paul L. does.

I cut my rear wing on the cut lines and I have not had to do anything to make it pass tech with the roof height or the wing chord. I cut my rear window on the cut lines as well. I have never used the end plates on any of my rear wings.

Thanks Scott for the quick response. Sounds like we are doing the same thing as you with the exception of us having to cut our wing height below the cut line and the chord.

If you have to cut the wing lower, it is because of the way you have your body posts. That doesn't mean you are doing anything wrong, but you have the rear of your body raised up a bit more giving you more rake to the way the body sits. I could do the same by raising the rear of the body then I would have to trim the wing so it wasn't higher than the roofline.

Could someone pleae give me the dimensions of the Large Screw that hold the wing on. I've looked on the Team Titan site and can't find them. I should be able to get some in the UK, but need the dimensions.

Thanks.
