    It might be a good idea to post up prices paid. I have to find better shots of my wing. Overall, I like it, but it does have a slight sag.

    ok, any info on the parts? like seller, manufacturer, price etc? Guys, I can only create a database if info is provided. Just posting pics wont really help - I need both pictures and product info so I can compile a definitive list for Bf.com to reference. Thanks for your help and support!

    Purchased mine from BeastinM3 (Matt), but not sure where this rep was from. It does have the screws in it for removable risers. I put a WTB ad up but I'm still wondering if you can buy just the risers from a vendor. Has anyone done that?







    Sorry for the repetitive crappy pics

    Thumbs up MA SHAW Replica - Review

    I purchased a MA Shaw replica from another user that never installed it. It is unpainted and since it has been sitting around there are some imperfections like scratches and tape adhesive from being wrapped so I'm sure they would look a lot better coming from MA Shaw..

    I'm happy with the overall quality. Fiberglass is pretty thick and seems very well made. Only criticism would be the top portion fit to the risers. There is a small gap (not very noticeable) at the leading edge of the top piece. I actually didnt check to see if there was when mounted with out the risers (plan on running without risers mostly), so I'll give a shot some day this week and report back. Hoping to get it painted and mounted in the next coupled weeks.

    one of the risers:


    bottom side of the riser.


    no sag


    Dont mind the dog, he likes helping out


    the gap on the leading edge
















    Jack approved!

    I have a CF chinese rep from ebay and a CF MAShaw.

    The MAShaw is shaped just like the genuine article with zero "sag" in the middle of the wing. However, like all MAShaw stuff, it is true race car stuff - the fit and finish are poor. The CF version requires serious prep work and a clear coat to be show car worthy.

    The Chinese rep has "sag" in the middle of the wing, which is hardly visible when in the high position, but quite visible in the low position. The fit and finish are perfect. Beautiful weave and clear.

    The chinese rep is a tad lighter than the MAShaw, but is also less rigid. It IS very functional on the track.

    If you plan to run the wing in the high position all/most of the time, I'd go w/ the chinese rep. It costs like 25% of the MAShaw, has a MUCH better fit/finish and looks fine w/ the blocks in place. Unfortunately, when mounted low, it looks too "sagged-out" in the middle.

    The rep from "abrahammotorsports" (or whatever its called) looks perfect. Unless you want/need CF, that is the route to go.

    Does the deck lid open all the way up with out it hitting the rear windshield with the risers installed? I am looking at getting a LTW wing for my Fern 328is with removable risers so was just checking to be sure it would be OK for daily driving with the risers in place.



    thanks,

    Wing is painted and on in the high position for now. Overall I'm happy with this wing. It well made but fit isnt 100% when all assemble. Also new holes were needed to mount this wing, and the protective strips that site on the quarter panel were removed since they were slightly more exposed with this spoiler.

    NOT TOO HAPPY!!

    Last night, I pulled the wing off last night to remove the risers and found that the threaded inserts in the top part of the wing don't line up with the holes on the bottom shelf??? Whats the point of the removable risers, if you cant bolt the wing up without them?? Whats up with that MA SHAW!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyway, I think I figured out a work around, but I wish I had discovered this BEFORE having the wing painted.

    That has been posted on here before about the mashaw wing. It has removable risers but that wing was meant to be installed in the high position at all time. Too much effort to remove the risers anyway. I just run with the wing in the high position.

    Mashaw CF ltw wing on mine painted alpine with some cf exposed. Will have it painted differently in another year or two when I get bored of it.
