Apr gtc-300

If one were to install this spoiler and open the trunk, what will happen?

Can't say because I don't have one and particularly think aftermarket spoilers look silly; but since no one seems to have an answer for you why don't you measure the distance between your trunk and window when it's open then find out how tall the spoiler is and see if it will clear?

I think Mike Kuhn uses one. Try to PM him. I think he's topgear8 on here or something.

I would be interest to see pics of the GT300 installed. The GT200 is good, just don`t like the arm design, too many moving parts.

th apr wing is solid, have it on my 8, hit 125 with it already, and crusiing and 100 with no issues if you car is set up right it improves on handling and down force, the get my approval 100%

Old thread bump! The GTC-300 does not hit the rear window! There is about 1/4" of clearance. Just open the trunk slow!

they hold the spoiler up, what else you want them to do? there not curved if thats what your asking? the spoiler looks good if the rest of the car is fitted with nice aero, vented hood, aggressive bumper,side skirts , rear diffuser, rx8s dont have a natural race car look to them, more like a woman getting groceries lol.

The mounts for the GTC-300 do have curved mounts. They could be shaved to fit the rx8 better, But they are still pretty good. The rubber makes up for it.
