Some will say it looks broken and I have ruined it but this is the 4th car that Iíve bagged - I just love the look and the versatility of adjustable ride height.

Thinking back on warmer weather when my car could actually be clean and not covered with road salt for more than a day.

Well he actually races it, so I think we can give him the benefit of the doubt for now.

I noticed that, but doesn't a wing on a FWD car actually hurt performance, since its putting the down force on the rear, not the drive wheels?

Not on a well prepped time attack FWD car.

Not at all. Downforce is to help balance the car in high speed corners and has nothing to do with which wheels are driven. If the car understeers the you need to add grip at the front, either mechanically or via downforce. If the car oversteers then you add grip at the rear.

Added downforce needs to be balanced. Typically you will see a wing on the rear and a splitter in the front. Take a look at setups in World Challenge, TCR, GTE/GT3/GT4 etc.

Yeah, but I was wondering about black wheels on CSG body. I think it looks pretty good.
