Sweet! Love the carbon.yeah I have been thinking if I end up tracking often at Road Atlanta I will re-install or go with a larger wing. Have you seen the 350 style wing that the guy is selling on Ebay $$$ but looks effective.
I Only have parts for 2 Wings/Spoilers Left! The Entire wing setup weighs around 9 Lbs. actually lighter that the original it was matched to. This will fit other Esprit model years but will require body modifications to work.www.ebay.com
The tracks I will more likely visit have much lower speeds and I think a wing will just be extra weight and drag.
That's just for the lower speed tracks 😆.LOL, a man after my own heart. 😇
The higher speed tracks will get the wing 😉....The tracks I will more likely visit have much lower speeds and I think a wing will just be extra weight and drag.

You know I am surprised, over on FB I made a similar post. Fully expecting a decent percentage of people to give me a thumbs down. Nope almost 100 "likes" and zero negative.So, going all "Atwell" on us, huh?
Well I have to say I believe your thought process is very rational and quite prudent. I have toyed with getting another race car (haven't completely ruled it out) but I also have similar concerns as you.OK going to say it - I love my Lotus and I am getting to understand and trust it......but....Not sure I trust it at 130 mph and beyond? Really any of the old sports cars I have played with. The consequences or a tire, bearing, ball joint, suspension arm, shock, chassis outrigger etc. failure are awfully large!
The fact that i think about such things is another reason why I could never have been a pro driver. The few times I have driven the back straight at Road Atlanta in a 1971 Datsun 510 race car (20+ years ago) I remember thinking of nothing but failure toward the end of the straight as the speed and the sound got uncomfortable - not good when you need to be focusing on the braking point. 💪
Perhaps enough laps and practice you can control the emotion?
How was the Europa at the end of a long straight? How were your nerves?
