    Yeah, but then you end up with holes in the boot and we can't have that now can we.

          After the Valiant I went the solid HQ Kingswood, mine was brown though completely original bar the sports steering whell, to hang some fish tales " eh EB "


          Man that car could slide!!!

          Then I bought one of these, with a sports kit, 200kms down the midlands, thing had wings

          84 and racing a v12 merc down the midlands with ny dad at 200 km good times .....

          and then I went a XY GT Replica ute, dual exhaust, shaker etc looked something like this


          AHH then I bought pinballs

                Sorry but being the old Fart that I am I can neither confirm or deny your line of thought.
                Forgot to mention the Austin 1800 AUTOMATIC that was the oldies car that I used for pracitise on L's _what a Dog of a car- comfy ride and seats though- Had a minor accident with that car and was written off. The Driving instructors car was a Datsun 1600 - Fantastic car!! . My parents then bought a Renault 16TS - Now that was fun.

                    Thanks mate, dad and son came and picked it up. Not sure who wrote it off but I am guessing the son.

                    Can you explain to me how any wing makes a car "go fast" I would assume a change of engine might, maybe gearing for changing accel.

                    Link

                    the wing is from a 22B, not some tacked on chinese mecano set ricer wing.

                    The ol' wanker wing! Apparently a GOOD wing on a sedan will generate about 40 kg of downforce at 200 km/h. The function is exponential to speed, so at 100 km/h (which is more like the speed you would tend to be doing) the downforce is maybe 6 or 7 kg. Put another way, about 10 litres of fuel. So to have the same pressure over the back wheels at highway speed AND be more streamlined, all you need to do is keep 10 litres more fuel in the tank than you normally do! Or a Bessa block in the boot
                    Not the same in my case, but I will let Subaru know that "danny galaga" from old AA would like to discuss aero dynamics with their engineers regarding how useless the wanker wing is. my top speed (lets not debate morals) was 180KM/H can you guessimate the downforce for me bearing in mind the wing is adjustable and has 3 seperate positions.

By adding the STi wing you ended up with more visibility. Not that this has anything at all to do with why most people fitted one.
                    your correct, i fitted one simply to change the look of the back end.

                    yeah and in the process it would look retarded. some might say "fully hectic!"

                    I dont know, some might like the rain coming in the boot.

                      I estimate 36 kg downforce

                      My guess it would handle as well (if not better) at 180 km/h in a straight line without a wing.

                      If the wing is aftermarket, it may be anything from say 40 kg at 200 km/h to -40 kg at 200 km/h. You aren't playing with 'remote airflow' back there like you are in a Plymouth Roadrunner

                      I've been seeing some ricers whose owners have realised the wings are pointless. They've taken them off and just put little plugs in the holes. I've seen some nice skyliney type cars that look so much better without them.

                      Anyway, It's no big deal either way. People laugh at my car, I laugh at others. Of course, I'm getting a LOT of laughter now that it's broken down and I'm riding a bicycle to work in 8 degree weather
