    That begs the question.., which options did you select?
    Have you gotten feedback from other owners of the product?
    Thanks.

    Ciro Racing Street/Track Atom Wing

    Highly functional, reasonable price, easy to install, looks great on an Atom - who says you can have it all

    Features:
    - High downforce, low drag, competition proven true motorsports profile wing element.
    - Carbon fiber wing element dimensions: 10" chord, 61" L.
    - T6 aircraft Aluminum struts, natural finish.
    - Strong, can easily support hundreds of lbs of DF, at high track speeds.
    - Clears most aftermarket mufflers.
    - Strut span can be custom specified, if needed to clear non-stock exhaust outlets.
    - Easy to install with no modifications to the car.
    - Wing can be easily removed via 4 clamps.
    - Wide range of AoA (angle of attack) for the wing element.
    - Endplate design optimizes DF.

    Wing width sized to maximize DF without overpowering the aesthetic of the Atom. Like wise the wing height is located 3"under the roll hoop for Street/track use.
    Comments have been: "Really makes the car", "Looks like a race car now", "Like it more than the factory wing", "Struts match the Atom chassis design", "Looks cool!"

    Cost: $1,995 base wing system
    Shipping: $ 132

    Options:
    - 5" Strut extensions for track use. Places wing in cleaner air above the roll bar. $ 195
    - CF Gurney flap. $ 95

    So, $2417. No feedback from anyone who has one. That's why I asked if the group buy ever went through. The only one I have seen is on a car that is being sold.

    My Ciro wing is on and looks great! Thought I'd share some snaps…I chose to leave the uprights and end plates raw aluminum,finished with 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper..gives it a rustic look..

    That is one strange looking lawn mower.

    What's the maximum angle of the wing? I have the aluminum Ariel UK wings, and I can get nearly 45 degrees.

    Won't most wings stall at > 15 degrees?

    EDIT: confirmed, thanks Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angle_...Lift_curve.svg

    Depends on the wing design.

    A single element wing will definitely stall well before 45 degrees AOA, regardless of the design.

    BTW MadMax, just a tip, but that brace that you have between the uprights right under the airfoil is absolutely destroying the air flow on the wing, so you're pretty much giving up on something like 22-25% of the length of the wing right off the bat.
    I'd also advise against the diagonal brace that's mounted lower, but it probably has to be there because the uprights are parallel and rather close to each other.
    Though TBH the air flow on the Atom is so terrible for the majority of the height range that it doesn't create _that_ much extra drag.

    Unless you put everything into a wind tunnel (car and wing) and actually test it, it's all theory and conjecture. That brace is only there temporarily while the urethane cures 100%. (I added it, not Ciro) Thanks for noticing..

    They told Dan Gurney he was crazy when he put his vertical strip on his wing and look how that turned out.
