Carbon Wing vs Spoiler


Guest Lee 7S

Recommended Posts

What do people think would go better with a modified 300ZX, a carbon rear GT style spoiler or simply an aftermarket high level rear spoiler? I'm at the stage where I need to decide sharpish but can't quite make up my mind!!

 

Would love to Poll this one!!

Lee, neither. IMHO GT type ironing board spoilers look utter gash mate. You've just built yourself a sweet looking Z, please don't ruin it with one of those. I'm not the biggest fan of high level spoilers as I just don't find they suit the smooth roofline and tailgate of the Z, they suit wide arch Zs though. I'd sooner go smooth. I think the only higher level type spoiler that suits the Z is the Bomex twin level spoiler.

 

Carbon fibre 99-spec... ;) although I'd paint it...

 

Although if I think I had yours, then I'd be going for the smooth lip spoiler. But you've had your tailgate painted already. Shame. Zcentre do a low level spoiler which might look quite nice.

it has to be down to your choice mate, personaly the smaller the wing the better.

 

anthing even remotly "race" or "fast and furious" oriented then it looks total sheet.

 

If your going to be racing it on the track, then it looks right, but only on the track.

Thx guys I also agree that the smooth look is hard to pull off, I think very few ZX's look right like that... I know what you mean Si about GT wings looking OTT and gash but the car will have near on 500 BHP ATW when it's finished it's final tune so it actually needs to have a fairly hefty spoiler!!... I do like the Viper as well, I think that would suit nicely... BTW i've only had one ZX with a carbon wing and that was the 97 purple one, I thought it looked ok on that?

Although i've got a high level rear wing thinking of maybe taking it off in the future... Like Si said smooth has gotta look better than the GT wing... Reasons for me taking mine off are wanna minimise drag and prob gain a little better fuel consumption! Although i'm sure my Z would look naked without it's rear wing, like walking round without your underpants on!

Sorry Lee, but although thats a nice car, that spoiler is soooooooooooooo ugly.
Yeah I think it's one of those, either you like it or you hate it... decisions decisions!! i'm beginning to think that perhaps the GT wing isn't the way to go on this car ;)

 

Perhaps something like this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NISSAN-300ZX-SPOILER-WITH-BRAKE-LIGHT_W0QQitemZ260185661125QQihZ016QQcategoryZ72209QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
