    It takes a skilled hand and lots of practice to set those rivets and get them just right.

    Re: Laser XE coming back

    looks great (I always liked the Laser wing, I know not everyone does). so how much design time went into it? lots of CFD? wind tunnel? kidding.

    you've officially taken the bar, raised it once again, and lowered it repeatedly on to our heads. always impressed, and happy seeing it was done to a first gen.

    150mph for sure.

    I'm not sure if you need it at 9.99 or not, but don't think so.

    Re: Laser XE coming back

    I would keep them as they will help to stop the air pushing over the outer edge making the wing more functional.

    Re: Laser XE coming back

    ^^I agree. It will also reduce the tip vorticies which are parasitic drag. If anything, I'd consider making them larger. Something else I want to study is making some sort of boundary layer trip or vortex generator toward the top of the rear window to keep the air attached to the back of the car to reduce parasitic drag and improve the overall aerodynamics of the car. Undertrays are also on the drawing board.

    Re: Laser XE coming back

    I only want rear down force at the top end of the track, at the highest speeds. That is why I used such a shallow flat angle, and a small wickerbill. Other wise it could generate too much rear down force and pitch the front up and hurt traction.
    I plan on building a partial front belly-pan/fliud catch pan with a front air dam incorporated under it. NHRA is allowing these now instead of engine diapers.
    But first I have to install my front coil-overs.

    What coil overs did you end up going with?
    What spring rate?

    Honestly, I dont remember. They have been packed in the box way up on the shelf for 4 years, got to get them down a see what I got. What spring rate do you recommend? My front weights are 725lbs each side.
