TopSpeed Motorsports' entry for the 2014 One Lap of America is this fire-breathing wide-body twin-turbo Audi R8 V10 which sports a massive 78-inch wide GOODAero Raptor wing.

Aerodynamics: The real unfair advantage

There is no question, no need for debate. Proper aerodynamics will make your racing car go faster. Period.

Whatever the car, whatever its power, aero will make it lap the track faster. And yet, aerodynamic enhancements are possibly the least-explored area of development in amateur racing.

That's not the case with the pros. Professionals understand, appreciate, and make maximum use of all the aerodynamic tools at their disposal. And, why not? Wings, splitters, spoilers, vents, canards, NACA ducts, shaved mirrors, side windows, flat bottoms, rear diffusers and all the other elements of aerodynamic improvements make you go faster.

Aerodynamics are cheap speed

Used correctly, aero can result in more speed for less money than any other improvement you can make. Simple but large aero changes like a wing and splitter often result in immediate multiple-second reductions in lap times, but even more time comes from attention to all the little details.

Our passion is our mission

At GOODAero, our mission is to help you make the most of aerodynamic tools and techniques in that never-ending quest for faster lap times. We are developing a line of thoughtfully designed and meticulously constructed products with a single focus: Making you go faster. Legally. Within the rules of your sanctioning body and the limits of your own budget, our goal is to help maximize your vehicle's performance while providing professional-quality products to drivers of all levels.

Universal uprights for the GOODAero Raptor mean you can add a swan neck wing to almost any car. Coming soon!

Soon available!

Coming soon: Universal swan-neck uprights for the GOODAero Raptor wing. CNC'd from aluminum billet, our new swan neck uprights will make it possible to add the aerodynamic benefits of top-mount wings to almost any car.

Our exclusive design keeps the trailiing edge of the wing in a fixed position even as the angle of the wing increases. That's important if your racing class has wing height restrictions. Also, the rounded leading edge and knife-edged trailing surfaces make for very low turbulence, allowing it to feed significantly cleaner air to that big wing.

What? You don't know the benefits of swan-neck wings? They are much more efficient than conventional wings of the same size. That means you can have more downforce at the same wing angles or the same downforce with less drag than with more conventional wings.
