We had been looking around for a good wing option for Scotty's STI for a while before we saw the Nine Lives Racing Big Wang. But as soon as we saw it, we knew that this was exactly what we were looking for. What we wanted was a functional wing that had good room for adjustment, and the fact that it was made out of aluminum meant that we would have a much easier time working to make up-rights, etc.
Once we got one in, and started to look at options, we realized that it might actually be possible to make a direct bolt-on wing to replace the factory STI wing.
So that is what we have done.
Our first offering of the 9 Lives Racing Wing is for the 2011 - 2014 STI Sedan, and our up-rights use the OEM Bolt Holes on your trunk to attach the wing.
We also did our best to design the wing within both NASA and SCCA rules so the top of the wing is just below the top of the roof line, and the back of the wing is even with the rear edge of the bumper. And for this stock bolt-on replacement, that seems to be a pretty good fit for this 70" wing.
The only modification that we made was to open up the rear bolt holes slightly to accommodate larger hardware.
We have developed this wing for motorsports use only. It is not for use on any public road, and even though we have tested this wing, we cannot test for every possible use, configuration, or application. So use this wing at your own risk.
Please note that the weight listed is dimensional because of the box size. Actual weight of the wing and up-rights is 21 lbs.
