While were on the subj of ducktail wings

I own a 2014 Mustang GT and have always wondered how effective the GT 500 wing is at speed.
While driving in the rain I've noticed on several occasions that the Stock Gt wing does nothing the rain just sits on it. apparently it is not in the wind stream.
Have any of you stangers with the duck tail upgrade ever noticed the wind stream pushing the rain drops off the spoiler. That to me is a good indication that it is doing its work. I am talking about at 55+ mph.

Even if it was, you probably won't ever be going fast enough to notice anything. Its mostly just for styling.

Lol, almost no stock wings do anything, they are looks only. Even the big T1 wing available for the 94-98 cars doesn't really start working till 80mph and that thing is HUGE. I wouldn't really sweat it TBTH. Unless you are a racecar and then you'll be getting an actual race wing if you are serious.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
