GT350 Spoiler for S197 from Trufiber

Postby badhand » Tue Feb 27, 2018 2:52 pm

Wing time!

Found this guy's wide body S197 on the interweb, liked the wing and messaged him. This is a GT350 wing he has modified to fit his car. But there are rumours that Trufiber are working on one to bolt straight on to the 5th gen trunk mounts.

What do you reckon? Do the flowing curves work with the slab like S197?

There's like £100 offering variants of these, infact reuben has a cheap variant in his garage he got for £40, if you want to try that. issue with these wings (NON CARBON VARIANT) is they flutter around like a fking crack addict waiting for its fix. It's beyond a p1ss take how bad they are. They look nice, but I'd been put off doing it because of that. Carbon variations seem more rigid under wind etc.


However to answer your question if they work on the s197. Personally don't think they do, but it will depend which variant you get, some have a more square looking 'side plates' where the wing top loops round (like the one in your picture), that'd suit the car more than a 350 replica which is more circular. I think the 197's lines are very sharp, bulky and 'square like' so a circuluar style wouldn't look as nice.

That said, the picture shown looks to be using an Ikon variant (same as what reuben has) which has the style of a 350 one but a more squared off side, making it look neater on this application, however having the disadvantage that it's flappier than... (okay I cant say that i'll get banned).

So it really depends which style trufiber follow. I guess if there's already a trufiber gt350 wing it'd look like that in style just the base plates made to mate better with the 197 trunk.


Yada yada, words. Get a big wing ya fannehy. :lol:

Seems trufiber make one for the S197 already, but only for the 2010 on. Not sure if the trunk bolts are in a different place, but academic really as I think it looks a bit gash now anyway.

Might go for one of these: :D
