    Hey everyone, I'm new to the group but I was wondering if anybody had pics of their cars or just cars in general of an sn95 with the aluminum race wing? I've been tossing up the idea of that and the S281 but can't find any good pics! Any and all help is much appreciated!!!

    Drag wing vs. s281 are completely different styles.


    Are you going for a look or purpose?

    duff daddy has an aluminium drag wing.

    Thanks for the pic! And right now it would be more for looks till I can afford to make this 2v stand it's own lol. Most drag wings I see stick way past the trunk lid but I like the looks of that one!

    Welcome to the forum buddy! I'm rocking a s281 clone. It's made by Xenon.

    I have always been of the mindset that wings are for planes. I hate trunk spoilers and think that the first mod anyone should do is removing the factory spoiler.

    That being said, if you want a wing, then the race wing is definitely the way to go. Simple brushed aluminum, have it go back just as far as the rear bumper.

    Thanks man, I love the SN95s and yours is really clean! The S281 style is my top pick unless I can find the drag spoiler I like. I've really considered white on my car and after seeing yours I think my mind is made up lol. Love this sight!

    I appreciate it buddy. That's a pretty old picture of my car. Haha it has a drag wheel set up now but this is definitely one of the best mustang community forums that I've found so far. A lot of very intelligent well rounded people on here. Haha

    Haha well that's awesome! Can you upload a pic of your car with the current wheels? I'm in the process of getting race stars for mine.

    Drag wings shouldn't be on cars that can't run faster than 10's... Not a big fan of a drag wing is it isn't functional.

    S281>drag wing

    Unless you are doing a full out drag car. Its like going to the local track and having these loud old muscle cars with shift lights and roll cage but it runs 15's and they are in the time only's........:icon_salut:

    Now that's pretty sharp! I found 2 polished rear 15x8s with caps and lugs for $210 so needless to say I'll have at least the rears lol, and I like the 17s up front!..... what bs does the front have to have in order to clear the rotors?

    I believe they are 1.75" back spacing. You can run 15s up front as long as you aren't running cobra brakes or anything larger than a 13in rotor.

    How do you like them? Those are much more affordable than the darkstars

    Love them! A little heavier I belive than dark starts but definitely a good quality wheel with a perfect finish.
