Lets see some pics of functional MKII Wings, either aftermarket or custom.

Here is DavidV's custom wing. I think it is a modified '98 wing.

From what I understand, you want the posts to be as thin as realistic
and you want it to be close to, or above, the roof line of the car.

How high is the stock 98 wing? Would it be more functional over the earlier models?
Let's see some more pics everyone.

Scott,

Heres my 98 OEM wing. The design is certainly functional. Also the OEM (not replica) middle wing is quite flexible. It flex under pressure. It has 3 way rake adjustment on the side.
It resembles that of latest gen JDM RX7 RZ V-specs, skylines and others

How functional do you guys think the taller aftermarket versions of the OEM wings are? Anyone know the names of the OEM style ones?


Tall 91-93:


Tall 98:


Would they be as functional as a universal wing like this:

I'm just afraid it might look a little too over the top and look like rice.

I have the same concern.

I have a spare OEM black trunk lid in my garage.
Maybe we can try to research the best wing of this type,
slap it on my spare lid and we can both experiment with it :dontknow:

:) .... sorry, just had to.

It looked rather uneventful ... no damage, nothing scary.
I know. Rookie. ;) Its an ascending blind corner. I was going too fast. My four wheels got off the pavement. I let go instead of fighting it. But not a snap oversteer or anything like that. Its fun :thumbup

I'll buy that wing if you let me use your trunk lid. Let me know.

Hahaha nice..ive thought of using a trd wing for tracks with highspeed sweepers, Im just not sure how functional it is. There was a race mr2 being parted out a while back that had a wing similar to what is on those jgtc cars, its doesnt look too bad as it looks more race than rice. Ive also seen lots of jdm race mr2s with 98 spoilers that have had the centers removed and replaced with a taller spoiler in the middle similar to what DavidV has. So unsure though...
