4 degree shims work great on the RS wing. 8 is overkill for that.

Himself. Let's see pics. Mine in the mail. Also would seem like 4 degree shims might give a bit more downforce rather than flat especially if you want more downforce than 8 degrees on stock wing. You're gonna run flat first?

Anyone can chime in a link to get the 4 degree shims. I lost my 4's when put on the 8's.

I'll post some pics this weekend. Just got in from NYC. At first I didn't like how it sat above the deck lid risers. But now when I look at it, I think it looks menacing and I dig it.

Great, much appreciated.. interested in how it attached to the deck lid compared to the stock wing. So I assume the OEM shims do not work with the new wing anymore and the wing come with new shims?!

I'm looking for a set of 4 deg shims ... Canewal? or who would you recommend? UK or US are fine. Pelican don't seem to have it. Quite happy to take a clean set of 2nd hand ones if anyone letting them go.

according to a RT (Loren) post its seems the Motorsport part number is 996 512 821 90 "Adjusting Mechanism 4 Grad" (with perhaps either.822 or .823) as the matching rhs shim.
