As my car gets faster, I am working very hard on stability. This Winter I am again tearing through the suspension, checking alignment, shocks, and more, and finally taking the BIG plunge in aero, adding a large "Snack Tray" in back.

These pictures are of the first test-fitting today. I'll have more info on mounting and structural later. Not ready to show yet.

The Wing is from 9Lives racing, and they provide available Gurney Flaps, as well as downforce data based on angle of wing.

I will also be adding a front splitter to balance the added downforce.

Definitely gives the car a new look!

Really like your enthusiasm, bravery, and getting it done attitude.
Be sure to post all your progress, it motivates me to just work on my punch list.

Railroad,

You also forgot stupidity, craziness, and willingness to cut up my car!

I'll put up pics of the mounts once I finalize. Right now, just 1" x 1" aluminum angle. Need to add bracing to the trunk floor/frame, plus a secure yet easy to remove wat to attach the uprights

Thanks. Looking forward to seeing your solution.
I've thought about building brackets to attach to the quickjack bolt tubes that could be easily removed. Then a support system to the back bars of the rollcage, probably some form of a turnbuckle tension rod.
