The proper application of aerodynamic downforce to a competent racecar will produce improvements in lap times that are unobtainable by virtually any other means, and can be accomplished at a relatively low cost. It also happens to be the least well-understood area of race car technology, even though it has been around for more than 40 years.
At the highest levels of racing, aero downforce devices have been developed to an incredible degree and current designs are a closely-guarded secret. At the other end of the technology spectrum, the consumer market has been frustrated by cheap imitations — "dress up" rear wings and "spoilers" that do little in terms of usable downforce, and are unsafe at speeds in excess of 120 mph.
Many "spec" wings are based on old technology and some are poorly constructed. A number of serious racers have encountered the void — finding a very high performance, lightweight, tuneable and speed-rated wing that has been extensively tested and can be purchased at a reasonable price.
Competition Performance Products is the creation of dedicated, experienced racers, possessing the drive and commitment to fill that void with the G-Stream line of aerodynamic downforce components.
