    I hate to give bad news but I do not believe that is MA Shaw. Did you buy it from them directly?

    MA Shaw does not have those 90* angles on the top piece and does not have any "sag." It actually appears to bow up just a hair. See below comparison with OEM. MA shaw replicates these OEM characteristics pretty spot on.

    Actually no I didn't buy it new. Got it used from a guy in CA who said he bought it there. It was already painted and used for awhile. I paid $500 shipped I think. Anyway to tell? It seems like a hell of a product, rigid, light, uniform. CF seems nicely done.

    You can definitely tell based on what I pointed out. Also, the MA shaw will not bolt together without the risers. It was a 4 piece unit but was not made to be run without risers. I had to custom drill/tap holes to run it without risers. Additionally, MA shaw had a poor/dull finish on their CF as it was meant to be race part. So since it's painted, that will be tough to assess.

    Ok yea this works at with and without risers. Also my exposed CF on the inner risers is glossy. Must be somtihng else then. I wonder which one.

    Well as of recently it seems Abrahams is no longer producing the wing, however I emailed MaShaw and they are 1-2 weeks out after ordering it so it looks like they are still being produced. As it stands, is the MaShaw now the best option? Ive seen one on ebay from bulgaria that checks all the boxes but the price is too good to be true.. Can anyone chime in on the current state of LTW wings now..?

    I just installed a DTM Fiberwerkz PTG style wing.




    Looks good, but let me tell you- this is NOT a plug and play wing. It needs a lot of work to make the finish look good, thankfully mine is vinyl wrapped so it wasn't as big of a deal. You have to rivet on the metal brackets yourself. The center section has a stud embedded on each end (risers screw onto these). NEITHER of my studs were installed properly, they weren't straight. When you bolt it all together it kinda flexes into place, but there are still gaps. Overall I like the wing, but for the price I'm not happy with the fit and finish.

    Recommended only if you have the time and money to have it professionally finished and installed, or if you don't really care. This is my track car, so I'm 50/50.

    Even the OEM gt wing is a hassle to fit. It’s pretty par for the course. I had sore hands when I was finished fitting mine.

    I think the low rise looks ok on the compact. With the risers it might look kind of odd

    Lester makes a good rep. The 2 reps beside my OEM GT2 actually fit better as far as the risers go.
