Perhaps and yes I did initially have the lift and while it did not have any noticeable wayward impact on handling on the track....I just thought it looked a bit odd and OTT to be honest and hence disabled the lift. I actually quite like the more subtle look of the smaller tail than many of the others.

looks awesome! And you did the upper brake light delete, well done! Where did you get the upper delete panel and do you know a part number?

I'm always concerned about altering factory aerodynamic engineering. There's one thing to like the looks of it (which is positive!) but another to risk the additional parasitic drag and potential for upsetting stability in the top speed range (which you know we all strive to spend more time at!)

Majority of this mods are based on 977.2 Sport Classic ducktail (e.g. csmab pics) and this is factory aerodynamic engineering behind

I e-mailed Getty and didn't get a response

Mashaw one is available, leaning towards it, how did you guys like yours as far as fit etc goes?
