    Too big a wing?

    Thoughts on this wing on the Atom? A friend is selling it for $200, and I'll have my car at a fab shop soon for exhaust work, so I'm thinking about just picking it up and getting a bolus style removable mount built.

    I think it'll look pretty silly on the street but should be very effective on the track if I get it high enough to clear the dirty air behind the roll bar. It's 60" wide.

    Thoughts?

    what is the width of the wing? I think it will look fine as long as it does not stick way out over the tires.

    edit: duh, read the post. 60" Lets see. Mine is 59.6" so it will look fine

    who is the manufacturer of the wing? I think the side plates would look better smaller. I know they may serve some purpose but I doubt it is enough

    I bought the wing. I'm now trying to figure out if I'm going to run a 7.5" chord or 10" chord wing up front.
