2, allows me to invert the mount and run the wing really low

Running stock, the wing only provides in air control and some side help for bite. So hiding it behind the shock tower saves my wing as I tend to go through them kinda quick. And spending $10-14 on a wing every couple of weeks was a little much. They seem to be much lighter material than PL or JC ones. So I started to form my own, now they are $1 in material.

I switched to the aluminum mount so it was easier to remove the control link for diff adjustments. Another reason I run the ball stud facing backwards.
Are you using the existing wing mount holes? Looks like you are. I would love to move the wing mounts closer together by about 8-10 mm so that you can use any brand wing in a jam.

And I totally get why you use the alum camber link. Just making sure you know that the position of the holes are in don't offer the 'stock' position.
