    Yes they do.
    The car in the picture has seen speeds upto 125 mph and they did not fly off.

    I sent you a PM yesterday before I posted this thread with pictures.

    I would say about 3 months.

    I really do not have a PM from you

    I did send them an e-mail asking to cancel. Since they have not shipped it already, they may not complain too much. Lets see...

    I'm not sure I like them; can't decide. I like the idea of carbon fiber canards cosmetically but on these I would prefer that they not extend so far out from the car body so as not to dominate the front-end appearance. Just my .02

    I chose this design to go by because I felt the front of the vehicle seemed a little anorexic compared to the rear end.

    Also wanted it to truly grab some air and have real downforce.

    I think the vehicle captured more attention with them and looking back at old pictures, I wish I had them mounted up earlier. Like at Road Atlanta.

    I would love some canards replicated from the GT4 car!
