notbob Posted April 17, 2017 Report Share Posted April 17, 2017 (edited) Mounting rear wing. The height of the wing stays the same, but changing the mounts is affecting the angle. The bottom wing is fixed. The top and sides are adjustable. The wing is not at the top of the roof line and is approx 1/3 of the way down. The car has a rear window. 1) If I mount the wing with the mounts facing forward as designed, the bottom wing is at approx 13 degrees at the leading edge. The top and sides are adjustable from 15-25 degrees. (Pic 1 below) 2) If I turn the mounts around, (pic 2), the bottom wing is at approx 0 degrees at the leading edge. The top and sides are adjustable from 5-15 degrees. Have read a ton of different articles... My thought is reversing the mounts and having a leading edge of 0 on the bottom wing. I am concerned that if I go the designed route, 13 degrees is too much and will be more drag compared to the downforce gain. But then, because the wing is not at the roof line, I wonder if the 13deg would actually be better? Thoughts?
