I am looking for rice wingstands eiffel tower legs. Seems i can buy a whole wing for $120 delivered. But for legs i like about $170. I dont really want the ricer wing just the stands anyone know where to get ricer wing stands. Made of Aluminium i would think. If the stands are $100 i probably will forget the idea.
I want to mount the GT wing on high ricer stands. Perhaps someone hs done this any pics?

Talk to Fierosmith. He has been making some stands that can be installed 3 different ways to make it higher or lower. They are of really good quality.

Thanks Jarhead & 2farnorth.

I'm currently manufacturing wing stands, I could consider making a unique set.

This is one of the development photos of what I'm making...



These are adjustable for wing height, and also down force pitch.

I designed these with possible racing applications...

now THAT is pretty neat. Nothing ricerish about a well designed, functional spoiler. This is something I may be interested in if I ever do set my car up for some type of SCCA racing. I think ?Blacktree? was the only other car I recall as having a functional adjustable spoiler, but I think he ended up changing designs and going to a fixed wing.

I agree that ones ok if you like wings. Main thing that makes it NON rice is that its an original appearing spoiler and actually functions being adjustable. If you like them, even just the taller stands available look good. I just dont like any at all really, and especially hi tech looking junk aluminum crap from Japan. I dont even like them on stock 70s Mustangs and Mopars. I only like lip spoilers that are part of the body or bolt right on the rear edge of the decklid. Like old Camaros and Shelbys. Thank god even Nascars got rid of ricer wings. Right away track records were broken with the new (old) spoiler.

www.fierowarehouse.com you can get stock designed wing stands up to 8" tall, i think stock is 2.5-3" so 8" stands will put the wing up nearly to the roof level.
