I went for the big boy Reverie wing with the canards and spoiler/splitter up front. First off, the thing looks totally bad *a*. To top it off, the thing feels even more planted (believe it or not).

I'll get some photos when the car is cleaned up, but here's a video for now to get an idea of what it looks like :D

(Hope the video works...)

Yep, vid works and it looks like the wing does too! Loved you pulling away on the corner! :clap: That IS a big boy wing.

I just drove a car with the same setup and a blower. Looks awesome, but IMO it's too much wing (drag) for our little motors. Someone needs to come up with active wings that neutralize on the straights, act like an air brake when needed and give neg lift on the turns. A light servo motor and linkage is all it would take I think.

Was it turbophil's car? I bet that was fun!

The drag seems minimal to me; I didn't notice much of an acceleration decrease, even at 100+ mph :shrug:
