Nice man, did you paint it yourself like the lip? I actually like the big wing, it makes the s2k look like a real time attack car.

Yeah i think that big wing is up a lil too high! Maybe one size smaller would look alot better but ive always been a fan of wings rather then lip spoilers!

The guys that I know/knew that raced told me that the leading edge of the wing had to be 12-13 inches above the trunk line for them to be fully functional (downforce) in medium-speed turns. So, that wing may work very well as it sits.

I totally agree i think that wing is probably great for tracking your car, but not eveyone that owns it is probably tracking it. But to each there own, I'm not one to hate on peoples car that is unless they have lambo doors on an S

Friday I drove by a used car dealer that had 6, yes 6, brand new Dodge Chargers with lambo doors up front and they were all open sticking way up in the air.

Eh, id say looks but Im no expert it does sit up more than expected, if it got put in one of those wind tunnels Im sure it would have some kind of down force but sure not as much as others.

Looks good RL - very tasteful.

The blue car on the other hand is too much in my opinion. The body kit, wing etc.... way too much.
