In the kit you will receive everything you need to run a functional track wing :-
- 2x Lightweight aluminium wing mounts powder-coated black
- 1x steel centre support bar
- 2x slide on wing brackets (to be bonded using Black Tiger Seal, not included within the kit)
- 6x cnc billet T6 aluminium lugs to be drilled and bolted to car boot/trunk
- 1x proven on track & CFD (computational fluid dynamics) BYC wing/air foil with GT style end plates ( wing size 1400mm x 175mm)
- stainless steel nut and bolt fixings
- designed for hatches running polycarbonate rear window
- Approx weight of full wing kit installed (5.5kg) or (12.1 lbs)
Please note: The small slide on brackets are designed using the Bond On Method. The reason for this method is to minimise air disruption and to keep maximum low air pressure on the underside of the wing where down-force is created. Using bolt on brackets or L brackets mounted to the underside of the wing, we have found from CFD studies that the drag ratio increases due to the surface area, creating air flow disruption as it passes under the bolted brackets. This is the main reason we try to keep to the bond method on most of our designs where maximum functionality can be achieved.
Here is a video we have put together testing on track as that's where we spend most of our time testing...Yes we actually go on race tracks testing our products!
We have put many hours into the design work and CFD testing of these kits to make sure the wing is positioned in the best place for functional down-force.
DISCLAIMER.... Due to the intended use all BYC products are sold “As Is” without any express or implied warranty of any kind.
All parts are made for “OFF ROAD” and “RACING” use only! Installation of many BYC products can change the ride characteristics, centre of gravity and balance of the vehicle.
Because of the change and uses off road and racing you should familiarise yourself and all operators of operating the vehicle to prevent possible loss of control that result in serious injury or death.
Although BYC makes every effort to ensure the fit of our products slight manufacture changes may affect their compatibility. We suggest always “test-fitting” a product prior to actual installation.
In addition BYC reserves the right to modify and or discontinue parts without notice.
