    As far as downforce and looks, what are y'alls opinions on a duckbill or GT type rear wing or spoiler?

    Don't like any of them as they spoil the curves on a Gen1.

    On coupe sports cars I like the looks of rear carbon fiber spoilers, including the duckbill GT type.

    I feel it depends on what else is done to the car. I can lean either way as far as spoilers go. Are there any in particular you are looking into?

    The GT and the "duckbill" are two completely different types.

    looks wise i like the GT style wing. I don't think it's creating that much down-force, but it looks great on the Gen1 cars.

    Down-force, based on what others on the Forum have stated APR and GMG makes a very good Racing wing, lots of down-force and very stable coming out of the corners.

    Not sure what the duck-bill does so keep the stock setup.

    Totally depends on the exterior. Are you stock or do you have other exterior mods?

    I prefer the GT spoiler for the Gen1. Specifically the Hi mount version GR makes, it being a bit taller makes the rear look a little more aggressive IMO.

    As far as downforce I don't think either will create THAT much to make a discernible difference.

    Just the GT and or the Duckbill type if I decide to go that route.
