I think I like edge better. Seems like it would be more sturdy as well, but I'm no engineer.

Don't do it man! Not on a streetcar. Save the wings for all the Hondas.

JK. Put the money aside in your supercharger cash accumulation account.

If you have to do it, edge. But unless it's a dedicated track car, and has other stylings to make it look like a true race car, I WOULD NOT DO EITHER.
