Don't end up a statistic - put it back on for your own safety!

This is all true, my uncle had tickets on himself, and took the spoiler off his BA XR8.
The first test drive, he thought he was a bit of a sick C***, and he went up the freeway onramp, gave it a bit of stick.
It was all good, till he set the cruise control, and hit a puddle of water.
The car TOOK OFF, and flipped, and all his tickets got burnt in the resulting fire.
Long story short, dont do it bro, lose the BOV, and lower taht s**t immediately.

Kraddy man - we dont want to attend your funeral!!

The XT's dont have the awesomeo power of the xr fpv range - there cars arent as highly engineered as an xr/fpv!

Nicks right man, I feel like a peasant. If I had the money, i'd put the GT spoiler on my car for stability, theres no two ways about it.

lol @ gt wing on for stability.. you wouldn't even notice the difference..

+1 for leave it off!!
Kraddy it looks sleeker without the wing. f**k what the purists say its your car. Imagine it lowered on a nice set of 19's or 20's. I have an SR kit and FPV force 6 bootlip on mine and i think it looks sleek as.
