i believe the stock wing makes 66lbs at 90mph... does anyone know the numbers on the RMM wing at its most agressive setting (i believe it has 3)... thanks, brian

If it makes more downforce at lower speeds, it will for sure make more down force at higher speeds. Unless the wing creates a lot of separation at higher speeds which is not likely at all. Looking at the wing, it isn't high cambered, i'd say it works more on netwon's than bernoulli's.jtanner said:The RMM wing makes more downforce than the stock wing at low/medium speeds. Don't believe me? Just pick both of them up! ;-)
I don't know about high speeds. It would be interesting, but I doubt we'll ever have a number...
That is not true at all. Look at the F1 wings, i bet they weigh no more than 30 kg (this could be an underestimate), but can generate up to 2000kg of down force. Downforce has nothing to do with weight, ... well, aerodynamic downforce has nothing to do with weight. None of the wings you see on the street are really high downforce wings. Rarely any of them are inverted airfoils or have much camber in them. Most wings run off reaction forces more than bernoulli's principles.jtanner said:Yup. Someone (Dinan?) once said "all wings produce downforce equal to their weight" or some such...
hehe, yah i just re-read his post, my bad.lol I think he was talking about it being heavier than the stocker
