Thats my conclusion at the moment. Its subject to change at any time! lol

From what I've been told on asphalt if your not running one in the rear your not competitive... Thats just hear say from some pro's... Everyones set up and driving style can change that though... Its what works best for you I guess!
Does the T2 gear diff take 50mm driveshafts instead of the EU 52mm??

It's on the page that has a diagram of the car; you'd think I would know but I do my best to not remember everything. The more numbers I store the less people I can remember, lol.

If I recall it's 40mm cord however.

Have your business in order too guys, the tech at this race takes no shit.

Thanks for the warning about the tech marshal being strict.

If I go by the 40 mm wing chord length appears to apply to the 1/10th Electric Onroad Touring Car *IFMAR ISTC* rules on page 61. Does that sound familiar Wes ? With 20mm blocks under the chassis the max height of the body is 190mm and minimum is 130mm.
I gotta check my wing overhang, looks to be a max of 10mm.

Hope you don't lose the memory of too many friends over this

Sounds right. There is also a small square the side profile of the wing has to fit through as well (40x20mm) Keeps people from running super huge spill plates.

Page 61 is what we use.

40mm cord is correct, and like Korey said, you're wing has to fit in a 40x20mm jig.

What I've found with most bodies is if you cut just behind the scribed cut line that is molded into the body you're going to be 98% there, and might need a touch more of trimming depending on how straight your cut is. So if you have any of the molded cut line on your wing, I can guarantee it is going to be too big; but most of you remember that from paved nationals.

The overhang of the wing is 10mm max, you gotta really hang it off the back to be beyond that though. The only people I saw that far off were guys running gigantic wings that didn't know better and ended up mounting it wrong on the body.

No sir. I can add it to future orders. I am all stocked up for nats at the moment with the real popular sizes. That's getting to be a big boy bearing, gas car size.
