Yes you're right. Put a wing on your M to prevent it from looking classy.

difference between form and function.

a wing does do more than just look good/bad

i give props to WSTO for putting this car together.

I do not understand the few members on here who are giving WSTO a hard time about the "build". Yes they got an assembly of parts to the customers liking. Who cares if the owner is young or not...its his car and he's putting it together for a purpose he see's fit. His choices of suspension, aero and power parts are exactly that; his choice. There is no final set up IMO. The owner can track the car...change out parts that do not match his set up or grow out of with driver skill advancement. KW v3's are a great track suspension especially for those who are DD as well.

I give this car props for being a bit more original than most. I'm honestly tired of seeing the same parts, same wheels, same lip etc etc going on each car for a "stamp of approval" from the forum or other members...but to each his own right?

At a glance, this car is put together (exterior wise) similar to other build done by IND, which gets a complete opposite set of reviews from the forum. Why? Because its IND? who knows...but it is odd.

good job WSTO, to the owner and for putting together a car that has purpose on the track.

Can't wait to see more!

The wing has to go, if you not going to track it, then it looks silly driving this car on the street with that thing.

The rest looks good.

I am just barely over the age of 30 and I think it looks pretty good. The owner built the car he wanted to drive. Now; I am not one to cut a check to anyone to do work I could do in my own garage but then again I have the garage and tools to do so.

That being said; its not so bad. Only thing I would really lose is the tow hook because I think that is a little overboard. The wing is alright in my book.

Try using a washer (perhaps needs a skim cut on a magnetic surface grinder, anything is possible). Bet that is what they did to have it sit that way.

Give it a try ... then let us know.

As for the mods of the OP I like some of what I see not all of it, then that is just me. I'm a fan of a STOCK car (otherwise I'll get something like a Porsche) again that is just me.
