I think the wind speed and angles are going to be a very important factor. Ive been over 130 numerous times without issue. But I generally dont drive that fast on exceptionally windy days just because okie wind can push the whole car off the road lol.

(BTW, talk about unearthing an old thread)

The 8 wing, from what ive read, is filled w/poly-U foam & has a lot more structure as a result

The 9 wing is hollow & under the right circumstances, can fail (as i know too well)

I think youre Ok to run that flap silverevo05

damn straight haha....very few old timers left. ive been off this site for almost a year, and just got back into it again.

i really liked the look, but cant find the pic from behind of the wing with the m3 spoiler, but ya i wouldnt risk it because i don think i can find anothe nice 8 silver wing

You could also simply add bracing. If it's a race car I'd get a Billet water jet piece and place it in the middle. If it's a street car i'd make a piece of billet or carbon the length of the wing underneath and into the sides.

When I made mine, I followed an article that had recommendation on the max useable height for a gurney flap. Anyone looking into that or does it really not matter and I was per thinking it?
