This.
I salute you sir.
You dont know how many times I was told to get the GTC-300 or a GTC-500 for a DD car.....
Their supporting reason being cause it looks cool and I get more street cred.
Im glad there are people out there who believe in use and application over how a product looks.

Thanks for the heads up about the wing failure.
I hope your new GTC-200 works out for you!

Thanks, It was the logical choice based on how my EVO is set up. The 200 is a large percentage greater in potential down-force than our stocker IMO

LOL, it was actually an old EBay trunk lip that I installed. The day of the wing failure was extreme wind & maybe the added wing lip broke the camels back

I have the GTC-200 as well. IMO if you get the risers, it looks MUCH better.

Yeap as Kevin said. I've broken 2 of them. Here is the difference.

^^^Great example there Vic. The polyurethane filled wing makes all the difference

What conditions were you under when your wing failed?

I guess there is such a thing as too much downforce. Sucks that it happened, are stronger OE Evo8 wings cheap?

I wasn't a big wing fan for my street/track car, but this gives me an excuse to become one

Where & how much for GTC 200 wing with 2" risers? What do you put on front to counter balance downforce?

Depends on where you get it but expect to pay $700.00 for the wing & anywhere from $70-80 for the risers

Heres what it looks like all mounted up at 2 degrees

My front is stock except for a home built air dam & undertray

What if some of that expanding foam crack filler stuff got sprayed into the EVO9 wing? Is there easy access to the space through the side post somehow?
