The wings position behind the rear wheels, should match the position of the front wing ahead of the front wheels, to balance the aero. Using the wings low pressure point as the fulcrum.

The front wing end plates also need to be 120mm ahead of the front tyres.

The height, that's a finger in the air I'm afraid. It needs to be high enough to drive the diffuser. Wool Tufts and a video camera will be required, and several different heights to test from.

Looking around the paddock yesterday at gurston, majority of rear wings were at the seated drivers shoulder height.

Put it much higher than that, then use a 2nd small wing to drive the difuser, ak Smiley.

Like the sound of the 2nd rear wing, thanks Nick

Trial fitted the front wing, the wing support brackets aren't machined yet, so this is just me trying it out where I think its going to sit. Looks ok to me.
