What is the point of having the 2 sides adjust in opposite directions? It's cool as long as the motors can support all the downforce and not flap around.

isnt there a whole section on their website that deals with the engineering standpoint???

I dont think I know of any racers running the split active wing. I know of a couple using the static wing. Personally Id rather spend that $ on better suspension.

Hey guys,

A little shameless plug... I work for aeromotions.

We have the only commercially available wing that has been fully wind tunnel tested at high speeds. Our active wings are seriously awesome, and we have track data (from an E36) that proves the technology is worth ~ 2 seconds on a two minute lap.

However, there are a bunch of E46 folks running our manually adjustable wings with GREAT results. Our low drag airfoil works exceptionally well with the E46 shape (rear window). Check out our bimmer stuff here: http://aeromotions.com/products/by-make/bmw/_nr_

I think active aerodynamics are great if you have the resources to afford them and properly implement them.

It's cool and probably works very well, but I don't think active adjustment is allowed in most racing bodies.
Yes, that's true that only modified and unlimited classes typically allow active aero, but our signature airfoil that has gone through relentless CFD, Wind Tunnel, and track testing is available in the R.Static (14 degree manually adjusted) configuration. The R.Static is pretty much allowed anywhere that allows wings and raised spoilers as far as we know. And the R.Static still makes the 860lbs of downforce at 200mph with very little drag.

RRT uses Aeromotions wings on some of their cars, but to the best of my knowledge they only use the static wings. Regardless, high quality pieces right there.
Thanks for the kind words.

Yep, RRT is great vendor of ours and runs a lot of R.Static's. However, VS Motorsports runs our fully active S1.Dynamic in NASA GTS-4 on their E92 M3
