WTB: Big ol' wings

Post by MotorCade » Fri Oct 11, 2019 10:47 am

Looking for some stupidly large wings for a grassroots style Formula Continental conversion to hill climb car. Anybody got something laying around that might fit the bill? I'm thinking FSAE size... Pikes Peak size. BIG honking wings. All the downforces - I need them. Max speed I expect to see on AutoX or hillclimb courses is around 80mph. So... BIG WING.

Let me know... 231-412-7730. Cheers,

Cade

Lol. Getting there. Andrew: slightly largish.

What would it take to keep a small dog on the ground in a hurricane? Double it.

I have a 16" cord ex-Staudacher wing. I don't recall the length, but it'll be in the neighborhood of 65-68" - will need mounts fabricated, plus one small spot of damage (about thumbnail sized) punch-through on one side. Will also need endplates, though those are easy enough to make - or mount it by those holes.

Too big for my car when we dropped to P2 (12" max), so been sitting around collecting dust.

You know how to get a hold of me...

Ok, rear wing is sorted... two new options to try. Need a front still, though. A little more tricky as it needs to be mounted a particular way. Must hang from the center. Hopefully someone has something that will work. Cheers!
