Maybe the embed code wasn't liked by the forum but the link works.

The Rally proxy preview was just under 2 hours, this one was 2 and three quarter hours...time flies!

Damn autofocus going in and out could be heard through the video so will try the next one with fixed focus.

I enjoyed looking at the cars though and look forward to a busy day tomorrow.

Great Technical Review,
The issue with Bangers Racing Alfa 156 rubber rear wing is that it looks like it is just a push fit of the struts into the holes made in the wing, but one has came out, and as much as I tried I could not push it back in (as it is very soft rubber) I don’t think they are meant to fixed with adhesive ?

I don’t use any black insulation tape here, so I think maybe the loose black tape you found on the front wings of your Audi A5 is most probably from within your own car ?

Thanks.

I saw the hole in the wing and also tried pushing it back and also gave up.

The piece of black tape is the same kind of duct tape type I use for cleaning tyres and holding interiors in, maybe it's out of mine but nothing seems loose so not going to worry about it.

I don't mind how you re-attach it. The rubber was glued, not sure how it has come adrift. I jus like flexible wings, to prevent damage. Whatever you do, it won't have any effect on performance.

Can't remember. Would have been Super Glue. or Glue n Glaze. All I recall was it was the nearest wing I could find, to look like an original. So thought I'd flexi mount it rather than re drill the boot.
