Default Wing mounted on Carbon Hatch

I have a carbon hatch and want to add aero to the rear of my 350z.

Has anyone in here had luck with mounting a wing to a carbon hatch? Or do I need to go chassis-mounted?

Anything that will function with down force will destroy the carbon fiber hatch. Even the metal oem hatch will deform with a functional wing.

Agreed- any significant aero will deform and eventually destroy a CF hatch. You need to determine how to best mount strong metal wing mounts (that won't deform) to the chassis.

Do you happen to have any pictures of your install? Was there a kit that came with everything or did you have to do custom?

I've had my Z for 7 years now. Not sure but that may double. If it becomes a secondary I'm definitely adding aero for track days.

BTW I found this article which was SUPER educational. Reducing drag for speed and creating downforce for traction are two very different things.
