    Better wing options?

    I am sick of buying wings all the time. Is there a better option here? I have the wheelie bar but I still destroy the wings in a few runs it seems.

    I run this on my street E Revo 2.0. You will have to drill your own holes but has held up great for me thus far...to be fair I do run a wheelie bar as well and don't end up on my lid to often. But I went through my stock wing pretty quick even doing what I do.

    Thanks Rick. May give that a shot. The stock wings just don’t hold up. Mostly from doing wheelies non stop. Then they split and start to come apart quickly. Thought about just eliminating it but think it looks weird without. Or even trying a different wheelie bar altogether. I don’t mind scratches and scrapes, but these things just shred apart!

    I run the jconcepts finisher on 2 of my Teknos, they are definitely a good durable wing.

    I run without the wing. If you land big jumps on your rear, the wing either bends the aluminum chassis brace into a bow, or rips the plastic chassis brace in two. I feel you are better getting that **** thing off there, including the mount, and letting the EREVO wheels absorb the impacts.

    Got tired of replacing wings on it and my outcast, so found an alternate thing to use so I still get the "bumper effect" a wing offers without durability issues.

    I used this on my outcast, it worked fine too, but then I tried the other stuff as well as it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb like the white stuff:

    I just cut a chunk out, then round all the corners off with a dremel sanding wheel so it doesn't dig into the ground so much. Drill the holes, countersink them a good bit so the screws don't hang up on anything and done.
    Expert rigging at it's best!
