205 spoiler on 185

Visual Styling, Spoilers, and rims

Postby Tazka » Wed Oct 22, 2008 1:49 pm

it's expected that there will be 50 kg of downforce at 100 kph with the wing in the up position, and maybe five times more than that with the wing at the low position."

They say that the lower spoiler version has 5 times less downforce than the higher. Wich is pretty obvious i say.

So by "making it work" you mean physically attaching it, right? :doh:

I am so stoked on this spoiler it is silly:

"Toyota Celica 1994 onwards Jap Style ASP Rear Evo style spoiler."

I mean, I like the OEM ST205 spoiler with spacers, but from behind it is too boxy and right-angle and tall. I like it more with the spacers, but it's too tall of a spacer. I think from the front of a ST185 with a ST205 spoiler looks good but from the back the ST205 spoiler looks too boxy and dumb.

This one is much more smooth and gradual. I am really liking this one. I think I see a brake light in it too which is a plus for me.

I had a thought though, has anyone compared the measurements of the st185 and 205 trunk? Is the ST205 trunk wider?

Pretty sure I'll order it and find out.

It's pretty reasonably priced I think. I will do a photochop tonight.

Cheers,

It will be way too wide and the mounts won't line up on the hatch (they angle out over the fenders). I own both, the shape of the hatch is compeitly different on my 6th gen not to mention wider where the spoiler mounts.

Crap!

So you just can't do it? Granted you still want your hatch to be able to open?

I guess I won't do this if my trunk won't open.

Just curious about something. I know it may indeed sound like heresy, but what about using an.............

Mitsubishi Eclipse GST spoiler? It has a really nice bow to it that I think actually acts to compliment AND contrast with the straight rear lines of the 185.

Just my .02

definatly not a bolt on thats for sure, it would look compeitly akward unless you reshaped the whole thing extensivly.
