Spanning up to 71 inches over its optimized 2D airfoil shape, the APR Performance GTC-1000 Adjustable Wing supplies extreme downforce in widebody sports and touring car applications. The "2D" design allows the wing to maintain a consistent level of downforce across its entire span. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis was performed on this wing to support validation of its aerodynamic design.
This item is made to order, the normal lead time is 2-3 weeks. Contact our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 321-804-1101 for additional info.
Representing the latest in ground-breaking aerodynamic performance, the GT-1000 includes these special features:
- 71" span, 10" chord (main foil), 4" chord (secondary foil)
- Ultra-high downforce, up to 1650 pound force (lbf) of downforce (at 160 MPH)
- Angle-of-Attack (AoA) adjustment from 10 to 52 degrees (relative to ground plane) on the secondary airfoil, with no stall at 52 degrees
- Side plate dimensions of 17.1" (width) x 9.39" (height)
- 6061 billet aluminum brackets
Although the upper brackets (the ones that are permanently attached to the bottom of the main airfoil) have a multitude of mounting holes, the main airfoil is intended to be installed and fixed at exactly one position. For proper installation, the side plates (aka "end plates") are to be at exactly 0 degrees AOA relative to the ground plane. The main airfoil ends up being fixed at just under 5 degrees AOA (forward pitch) relative to the ground plane.
Chassis mounting is required - Do not mount the APR Performance GT-1000 Adjustable Wing assembly to a vehicle trunk lid --- the downforce levels can easily deform and damage even factory OEM steel trunk lids and create hazardous conditions. Pedestals are not available for the GT-1000. All customers will be required to fabricate their own, chassis-mount pedestals for their specific applications.
***Custom mounting distance is available, but if the distance is wider than 30" there will be an additional $150 charge***
Special Note: For custom-mount pedestal locations. Pedestal is NOT included.
User assumes full responsibility for ensuring proper installation as intended. Professional installation by well-qualified personnel is highly recommended. To insure proper function and reliability, APR advises against modification or substitution of any component of the intended installation. Any modification or substitution of the airfoil, side plates, mounting brackets, or hardware included with the wing kit may create unsafe operating conditions and ultimately cause this system to fail.
