I'm looking into running a wing on my small tire hatch. What mph do you need to benefit from a 15" wing? I'm going to be around the 150mph area.

There are plenty of guys who run quicker without one. Personal preference at that mph I'd say.....can't really hurt anything. I'd say go for it!

Mine is running 155-157 with 11 lbs of air in the slicks and it feels pretty stable at that speed. But if you would feel safer with the wing than do it.

Ok cool. I think I'm going to skip that for now.
