Micro Sprint Billet Wing Actuator Adapter
Keeping your car clean while making sure all of your components work well should always be at the top of your list when building a car. I am one of those people who look at the little details of someone else’s car just to see how much time and effort they put into it. There are a lot of things that people can do to their cars that really separate themselves from others when it comes to cleanliness and order.
One of the items that I like to use is Speedway's Billet Wing Actuator Adapter, part #966-27700. It makes the attachment to the wing from the linear actuator cleaner looking. The functionality of this piece is pretty simple and easy to use. The main purpose of this part is to prevent any linear movement from binding, such as the actuator itself or even the wing tree.
The last thing you would want to happen is your wing to be stuck in a certain position, not allowing you to move your wing during the middle of the race. A stuck wing may be caused by something getting bound up because the linear isn’t actually straight. Just like anything else on your race car, you need to make sure it’s straight and there is nothing bound up. This is pretty much the number one rule in my book of race car rules!
If you ever look at your car head on without an adapter, then look at your actuator connected to your wing tree, you will notice that it is offset a fair amount and is hard on the motor itself.
In this picture, I have the adapter on my actuator and as you can see, it straightens the actuator and takes the binding out of the equations.
This picture showcases the side view of how it looks put together.
Another advantage of this piece is that it will slide over your actuator and the bolt will go right through the hole on the actuator. This makes it very easy to add to your car in a matter of minutes with no extra holes needed. I suggest using a Stallard Chassis Micro Sprint Adj. Rear Wing Tree, part #960-7900, so the adapter will mount to the wing tree seamlessly.
