Are any of those 5 wings for sale, Wilky? Share the love!
Sort of, two are on my cars so not for sale & the others will be going on eBay to fund this winter upgrades on the XR. If they don't reach my ebay reserve I'll offer them on MCA at a reduced price.

Sounds like a ground problem to me - put your tester on the something that's supposed to have power & ground your tester on the negative post of the battery.

I have one, but, sorry, only FM know's! Only one - I got 5 :lol: (but 2 are repro crap :cry: ) Just noticed that GeneticRehab did say his is an original Cossie so I don't understand why he is saying he thinks he needs a spacer at the top. GeneticRehab - post a photo of what you think the problem is...

I used coarse self tapping screws to mount mine - no problems. Is yours an original or a reproduction?

It's all a matter of personal opinion but I rather liked mine better without a wing than with the bi-wing - the car looks better balanced and looks better from the rear. IMHO if your gonna have a wing then make it an RS (but not a 500). http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v11/wilky/XR_Bi_RSwin.jpg Wilky

the guys from drakenn are not really into the xr's much anymore
Your right and anyone doing business with them make sure you get the goods in your hands before you part with any bucks.

IMHO the 2.3T is a pretty damn good product and meets the needs of our XR's nicely but the best Ford engines are any that have been worked on by Lotus or Cosworth.

Yeah, lets all make sure we all have walkie talkies and then we can do the five abreast drag race out of the toll booths a bit better!
