wow, doesn't look like 3.5"! Good job making the clam look stock. Even an extra 1" wider rear arch would be great! I barely have fit a 255/40-17 under there.The rear arches have been widened about 3.5" to fit a 12.5" tire i.e. 305/30/18 or 305/650/18.
The wing is Trans-Am 72" spec. The body is just a little wider.

First I have to say what an amazing job you have done on this vehicle, it looks incredible. I love the wider body front and rear, and I love the way the S1 front end looks on the S2 rear end modified as it has been done so.Any comments on rear wing and mount. All constructive comments are appreciated
It need to be high, but it looks like it's about a foot and a half too far forward.if that is the best place you can run the wing...then asthetics go out the window. However, if you can still get the same performance and lower the location of the wing, then I would HIGHLY encourage the relocation of the wing.
I have been on the wing debate in my own mind for my own personal car, and have decided that not putting a wing on at all is the direction I plan on going. Because I really don't like any of the wings I have seen for Elises, except for the supercharged factory version. The only problem is that I don't know if it actually has any benefits to it, or if it is just completely asthetic.Putting the wing back creates more leverage, thus multiplying the downforce.
Mu current mount is just a starting point. the mount is just 2 aluminum plates. They can be cut and welded to push the wing back or down. I agree it looks out of place.
I have some ideas on the shifter and will be experimenting with some solutions.These are Tilton pedals. Hanging pedals looked too hard, so put an aluminum plate on the floor. The pedal mounting bolts + a few more go through the floor. Plate buts up against back and front extrusions.
I am waiting for someone to improve the shifter
I removed the parking brake.

Are you running the throttle cable down the center and out thru the shifter/parking brake hole?
Pilbeam have a pedal unit (top mount), costs more than the Tilton and is not adjustable: Pilbeam Racing Designs .. Innovation + Excellence = The Winning Formula -- but is an easier install.
