    Just a heads up 9livesracing.com announced on instagram yesterday that they are in the testing phase of their new 11-14 mustang mounts and they should be released soon. You can see pics on instagram, or check out their website to see all that they offer.

    They are a pretty cool small company that makes functional aluminum wings for actual track cars. They also have done, and share the CFD test results of their wings and end plates.

    You can choose the length of the wing, the width the mounts on the wing will be welded on at, different end plates, and you have the option for bottom mounts or swan neck/goose neck mounts.

    I am not affiliated with nine lives racing at all. I am just excited people are seeing the 11-14 mustang as a common track car like the miata, S2000, E36 bmw's etc. etc. and are continuing to develop functional parts for the chassis.

    Thinking of getting this wing in 71" with the Gurney flaps in 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4" The discount is gone though....

    Actually I was just making a scatter plot when the power went out!! Happens here when it decides to rain!! Was rather surprized that the 9 lives "Wang" with 10 deg. AoA and a 1/2" Gurney flap falls on the same line as the Double wing APR wing..... When the lights come back on will check again.

    Damn! That's nice performance then. More than I thought it would be. Looking forward to your calculations.

    That would be great if it follows anywhere near the same curve.

    Sorry, lost all of my graphing skills it appears... Down force as Y and mph as X. Three wangs with Gurney flaps of 1/2" and 1/4". All at 10 deg. angle of attack.

    I know you're trying to compare 'apples to apples' but the APR double has more potential for use at lower speeds, IMO. The point of most interest for your use is the 495# at 80 mph...

    Lots more DF and tuning options...where you need it on a short course. The 120 and 160 mph data points are literally off the chart. ;)

    The nice thing is that there should even be useful numbers in lower speed turns. Not much, but not ignorable levels like other setups.
