    GT3RS wing on 997?

    Is it possibe to install a GT3RS wing on a 997c2s? I have seen it on a GT3, I think it looks nice..
    The 997 s is a wider than 996 so i think i'll look nice. Since it is a big wing..

    Your comments and ideas..

    Eh, I say why not. A little more downforce in the rear really isn't going to hurt your handling, it will just keep the rear planted a little more at speed. I think I've read that the wing only puts down like 30 something net pounds of downforce. This isn't like putting on a cup car front end only, that could be dangerous because you'd oversteer, but a little more rear downforce alone really isn't. That would only be a negative if there's TON of rear downforce and you made the front light, which isn't going to happen with the RS wing. I agree that the width of the car helps make big wings look right. What would be really great is to use the RS rear wing with the new aerokit front.

    I think the question was probably intended to mean "Will the 996 GT3RS rear wing fit onto a 997?". It won't, because the engine lid openings on the 996 and 997 are different.

    Re: GT3RS wing on 997?

    Are there any aftermarket wings for the 997 that look like the GT3RS wing?

    Yeah, I wasn't really thinking of whether he'd get the exact stock piece to fit. Although, it shouldn't take too long for a decklid with uprights to come along in the aftermarket.

    Re: GT3RS wing on 997?

    Don't forget that a wing change often implies a front bumper change [lips modifications and so] on a 911. You can't simply change one without the other.

    Re: GT3RS wing on 997?

    Why does the GT3 have that wing? I guess because it improves performance of that specific car on the race track.

    Since you want a wing for your 997 I assume it is because you are spending alot of time on the track. Check out how much your performance is increased with this particuar wing on the 997.

    Probably not enough to warrent the expense and impressive-though-functional ugliness of the GT3 wing stuck to your 997.

    There may be two problems:
    1. aerodynamics
    2. fitting

    If you get too much downforce on the rear axle, well...you know what happens to the front at higher speeds.
    And if you don't fit the rear wing right, it may brake, fly away or whatever at higher speeds, not to speak about the warning light for the automatic rear wing if you remove it. I'm not sure if and how it can be de-activated.

    To be honest: I wouldn't do it. Go for the aerokit if you really want a wing, although I agree that the GT3RS wing looks much nicer.

    Re: GT3RS wing on 997?

    i dont like much any of the wings i ve seen i think some people could of done much better work with this wing thing
    911 is a car that underlies some integrity and these wings destroy it.
