    RS Carbon Wing



    Anyone know the RS wing is pure Carbon Fiber or not?

    How much lighter than the GT3 wing?

    Re: RS Carbon Wing

    Looks like at least partially CF to me in this photo (just guessing):

    Re: RS Carbon Wing

    I am gussing the RS wing is pure CF, just like the CF seats.

    Otherwise can't save weight at all.

    Anyone can confirmed that?

    Re: RS Carbon Wing

    Great pics as usual MMD!

    Just confirmed! Pure Carbon!

    Quoted from Porsche:

    "Made from genuine carbon fibre, it is not only lighter than the wing on the 911 GT3, it has a larger surface area producing additional downforce."

    YEAH! I loooove that stuff; freekin' loooove it. None in/on my car yet though.

    If I'm correct, the shape of the GT3 rs wing is also different than that of the standard GT3; the RS wing is only a thin sheet, whilst the standard wing has some "body. I suspect the standard wing to be made of glass fibre composites. The rs wing is thin enough to conclude that it is not only a glass fibre body covered with an aesthetical layer of "genuine carbone fibre", but also "full" carbon fibre.

    Makes sense to me; here's a pic:

    Re: RS Carbon Wing

    I just noticed the absense of the gurney flap on the GT3 RS. Can GT3 RS owners opt for a gurney flap at an additional cost?

    Re: RS Carbon Wing

    can GT3 retrofit the GT3RS Cabron wing????

    possible, but the rear end is not wide enough!

    the RS is much wider than the GT3.

    Re: RS Carbon Wing

    Yes, however you need to purchase a new deck lid as well.

    Re: RS Carbon Wing

    44 mm difference correct?

    The RS equipment in carbon is one of the most well produced on the market. I haven't found many other CF automotive items that have a similiar finish!
