    Hey I have been getting my throwback Thursday on today, and during it questions came about. Anyone know or know where an article is about the changes in rear wings/spoilers? Wastrying to figure out if it was just a quest for high downforce and the least amount of drag or something to do with the rules of the Speedvision Cup.

    I remember reading the SR Double was actually banned because it worked so well. That was a long time ago so no idea where I read it.

    The T1 is pretty sweet...

    I might know where to find a double stack as there was a guy in my club with one. He finally gave into the haters and put a stock spoiler on it, not sure what he did with it.

    It was a legit race piece I guess, then the ricers stole it.

    I would be interested, going to try out several spoilers/wings to see how they match up with my nose and suspension. I started to think about making one of those high rise ones in the third picture.

    I have one in the garage on the wall. I kind of collected a few back in the day and that was my first. I told my wife I wanted a S351 spoiler for xmas or bday and she ordered me the $400 SR351 because she figured it was better. I put it on and cruised it for @ 1 year then retired it to the garage wall. I have a Steeda and CF S281 also.

    the double stack was a bit too aggressive for street cars, but in racing it was very functional, in fact perhaps too functional since as some mentioned I too read about it being outlawed. The T1 is a nicer spoiler for the street, but even it might be a bit much, especially considering it all but obstructs your rear view mirror vision. I personally like the T1 wing but they are just hard to find oem, and even then there were no saleen markings on them that I'm aware of, so unless someone has some time of "proof" or paperwork of sorts, I'd be hesitant to pay a premium for one unless I personally knew there was something to look for that made it a Saleen piece and not aftermarket. Like with the heat extractor hoods, the only Saleen OEM hoods that had any part numbers on them were ordered through the Saleen catalog back in the day. In terms of how to tell an authentic Saleen hood without part number on it (Keep in mind this is for the '94-'98 hoods) one way was to look for type of fiberglass used (on non carbon fiber hoods), on authentic hoods it was a woven type of fiberglass, whereas aftermarkets it apparently was crushed/layered type of fiberglass. If someone else has anything they know that contradicts that please let me know as I'm always looking to learn something new (and with Saleens, it tends to happen relatively often).
