RE: Akrapovic Tail Pieces
Whats the benefit of these anyway? People love them, and they look awesome. But is that about it? or is the carbon fiber supposed to do something

No the wing will create some kind of downforce at higher speeds whereas the tail pipes do nothing,

That's cute, no it won't.
Ok maybe it will, but it will create so little extra downforce that you won't feel it. In the same way that the carbon fibre sleeves make it lighter, therefore reducing overall weight, even though you won't feel the difference.

no whats cute is that you say no and then you say maybe? You do realize that there is a difference between a WING and a SPOILER? a wing will create way more downforce than a spoiler at high speed and it is noticeable. or do race cars just put them on to add more weight...

RE: Akrapovic Tail Pieces
Ok fair enough, if you want to be technical about it.
But it doesn't look like he was referring to his "carbon wing" as a big high wing, but rather a slim line bootspoiler. If you look at his signature, you may realize this...

Indeed... I am so vehemently sorry that I wasn’t clear it was a boot spoiler and not an actual wing. Just makes the car look more “sporty”.

RE: Akrapovic Tail Pieces
Buy it cos you like it... Who cares if it does nothing? It's OK to like something and spend money on it if your finances/situation allows for it even if it 'does nothing' performance wise.

RE: Akrapovic Tail Pieces
Are you guys really arguing over a totally hypothetical and negligible downforce created by a spoiler? Do you people have nothing better to doBiglol

They are debating, not arguing.
