    I didn't get any shots while it was sitting on the car. But no sag so far.

    Probably is a bit. This was the cheapest offering I could find really, $270 on eBay. Its only on my track car not a show car so I'm not too terribly concerned with the polish. I realllly wanted the Mashaw one but I wasn't putting down $800-900 for a wing right now. It goes to the painter to and I'll post more pics when I get it mounted.

    If theres no sag now there shouldn't end up being. The ones I see sagging are shaped poorly straight from the mold.

    Wing comes back from the painter today. And I think I'm getting what I paid for as the fiberglass looks wavy. We'll see later today.


    Is there an instructional thread? I don't assume its terribly difficult but looking for tips and tricks. Was thinking maybe adding some rubber/foam under the pillars?

    Had to cut and modify to bolt up but wasn't a bad fit. Overall this cheaper version is for someone looking to add to a track car not a show car. Overall I'm happy.

    Ordered a tuningfiber wing because of the price so i decided why not..

    Well it came a few months ago and i never got around to posting the quality/fitment so here it is.











    Not planning on mounting it, but its really not as bad as i expected.. Came a bit damaged too. 100% chance ill end up waiting for the remake of the Lester/Abraham wing but i figured id share it anyways. The gaps and whatnot could probably be filled but it seems like too much work for what its worth. Also worth mentioning that the entire wing needs significant sanding and prep as the fiberglass has endless imperfections. If you dont want to wait and are handy this might be a possibility for you, currently seems to be the only true 4 piece wing thats mountable in both the low and high settings.

    Doesn't look too terrible actually, for a track car. A competent body shop can get it looking nice.

    How much does it weigh?

    About $250 shipped from Bulgaria, took about 6 weeks or so to arrive. Packaging was horrendous, im surprised it came intact.

    Its not very heavy, but i wouldnt call it light. Id imagine its about the same weight as any other fiberglass LTW rep (Lester, MAShaw...etc)

    And I agree, from 5 feet away it looks awesome. But theres some significant filling/sanding/paint prep that needs to be done before i can justify drilling holes in my trunk lid..

    I got mine for $240 from Importshark on eBay. Came from CA in about a week. Looks like I got the last one.

    I think mine weighed about 16lbs. It made the truck feel significantly heavier though.

    I am sorry if it has been discussed, but are replicas from Poland any good?

    Thanks.

    yeah that was a huge draw back when I had mine on. Even with brand new trunk shocks it felt like I had none what so ever.

    You had to order the LTW-specific trunk shocks.

    I thought it was MAshaw, but I’m told here it’s eBay. It’s full CF with removable risers. You can adjust fitment of risers by enlarging the holes and using a bigger washer. That was you can manipulate where everything sits without sacrificing clamping force. Worked well for me, I got it to line up pretty good. That’s a coupe spoiler fitted to sedan.

    Does it sag? Looks like it sags really badly in the close-up pictures, but from far away looks straight. Maybe the lens is playing a little trick on my eyes?

    Looks like there’s a little sag along with the non-curved risers
