Default 9Livesracing wing

So after doing some research and actually seeing the wing in person and seeing how it performs on track pulled the trigger and ordered. I installed it 2 weeks right before my first track day of the season. For the price you absolutely can not go wrong with this wing. With my custom made 4inch front splitter with 9lives racing splitter ramps, it transformed the car. Totally loved it and was getting faster and faster as the day progressed but it was cut short due to engine failure. Towards end of the day cylinder #5 started knocking heavily. Here are some pics of my added mods. For those of you that are looking into track spoiler I would definitely check out 9lives racing.

Car looks amazing! Sorry about your engine, how were the oil temps with all your vents?

Also, who tuned it if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks! I had the vents and air dam last year already and it did improve the temps. I never had a oil temps issues(auxiliary pusher fan helps for sure with vented fender liner), I had more of an issue with coolant temp getting high even with the air dam. But when I went out with the splitter, I was stunned how much of a difference it made. Neither coolant or oil temps never went past 215F even with full 20 min session going full send. It was cooler around 55F ambient temp but during same temps last year coolant would still get up there to 240F so it definitely made a difference. I assume the splitter helps directing a lot more air into the radiator.
I installed the GTM supercharger kit 1.5 myself back in 2013 and it was tuned right after by RT tuning. It served me well for all of this time and hard 33k miles.

Glad to hear that it lasted that long! RT Tuning is one of the best in the area.

Thank you for sharing your info about the temps, I've never had good temps for more than 10 minutes so i'll try out the splitter on my next Z and hopefully that will do it!

Hello fellow New Jersian!

Sorry about your motor. I pretty much have the same car, 2011 Black Nismo. It's nice to know that the splitter solved the heat issue. I have had heat issues since always, it used to be oil temps before going TT now it is coolant temps. Your air dam looks perfect, very jealous. Just curious how much weight can the splitter hold, could you stand on it, the wing? How crazy was the rear end with out a good functional rear wing, how big of a difference was it from stock to this.

I had 110lbs girl stand on it without a problem. I did not wanna take a chance standing on it myself (185lbs)but I think it could handle it as well. I added 2 more supports down the middle that aren't pictured. The wing does move around a bit but having the uprights mounting points spread from top to the back of the hatch helped a lot I think. The problem with the movement is the rear lid itself so maybe some time down the road I will play around with that to make it more rigid. Going down the straight close to 140mph it still held so it should be fine. It made huge difference when it comes to added downforce. I know you're familiar with this track so I was able to get into turn 12 close to 110mph which before wouldn't even come close to that. This was not even being on the limit. I think with this setup I could get into 1:29s with a bit more seat time and good conditions. Totally loved it how the car handled. Highly recommend

I reinforced mine with a couple CF squares at the bottom/rear two mounting pads.
I still get some side to side wobble for the wing I can see over bumps in the rearview, seems to be more from the hatchlid than the mounts, though the mounts do have a tiny bit of side to side flex.

It's a whole lotta wing for the price, and has transformed the car's handling on track. Would recommend for anyone wanting aero.

I have the same wing on my new track build. Have had only one and a half track days. Both ended due to mechanical/electrical issues. The wing is well
built and a great value. I like how it sits well back and high, so it should be in
clean air, making it effective in providing down force. Also, it is not in the way
when looking out your rear view mirror.

I did they same thing to reinforce my mounts several years ago as well.

To get full benefit of the front spltter make sure to block the gap that is left between the splitter and the bumper. I could not see if you did that or not from your pictures. If it is open you are losing a lot of additional downforce.

Yes sir, I have the gap covered.
