bit of advice mate,
do not try to make that wing, this is speaking from experience trying to make a front wing for an F1 RC car.
because of the relatively low speeds, the wing is purely aesthetic. the grip comes from the tyres. maybe look at an aggresive suspension geometry.
also (and i'm assuming its electric) you'd need to run a seriously stiff rear shock to keep the car "level" and avoid acceleration plant pointing the front wing upwards giving you less downforce.
like i said, i'd avoid the intricate wing as you wont get much from it apart from a parc ferme award.
oh, and i'll try and find the pictures of my efforts (using carbon fibre) it wasnt pretty, and it certanly caused more problems
for the record, i used the Mclaren Mp4/8 front wing as a starting base, and built winglets off the inside of the endplates. vibration was a big problem
if you need any further info pm me
hope you have better results than i did
