Do you think the ZR1 wing will retrofit?

I dont understand why anyone would want to retrofit this to a Z06 or any non ZR1 car? You guys realize the car goes through complex wind tunnel testing with engineering team making tweaks all around. The front splitter as well as under body wind tunnels are all specifically dialed with that wing in the back. If you retrofit this to another body style, you will actually introduce major instability to your car and ruin it.

For me, it's mainly for the looks only. Not sure what others are thinking. I'm not planning on going 200MPH anytime soon (I don't think my Z06 can hit that speed anyway lol)

even at highway speeds that wing make a substantial impact. You should read up on aerodynamics and how they work

That is an asinine statement. The rear wing isn't going to add so much added downforce as to change much at highway speed and certainly isn't going to ruin the car. You need airflow to create downforce, and the only way to do that is with speed, or a hurricane.

I would be interested to hear if any other dealers were able to obtain the ZTK wing yet.

Damn near half the cars produced today have some sort of wing system on them and I can't imagine they have any sort of extensive wind tunnel testing at speed. It's a cosmetic enhancement.

People add splitters all the time and I haven't heard of any rash of cars becoming unstable on the interstate and wiping everybody around them out. The type of wing style and the degree of adjustment would determine the amount of downforce impact on any vehicle.

GM shows the bracket for behind the rear fascia, two mounting kits (uprights) and the carbon fiber wing as the 4 main items. Along with a few part numbers for bolts and misc items, it looks like a straight forward deal.

The only thing I haven't found listed yet is the rear fascia. I assume it will be different due to the slots cut out for the uprights.

Interesting fact though... While imputing VIN's, I found that GM has built 58 ZR1's so far and the majority of them have the ZTK package.

Installing ZR1 ZTK.wing on Z06Rich,

Sounds like you have access to diagrams, pics and part numbers for the ZR1 ZTK wing and mounts. I am looking to install this high wing on my Z06. Can you please send me pics of what the mounting system looks like behind the facia, the associated part numbers and maybe even an ipdate on how your install went.

Thank you,

Tim

Default Zr1 spoiler

I am working on a c7 z06 that is getting a zr1 spoiler and can give you some insight, as I'm almost done with the job.

I'll start by saying this is not bolt on job, almost everything you touch is going to need to be modified.

Some parts you will need: (I'll get you some part# when I get back to work)
Zr1 spoiler support bracket -
Zr1 hatch release support bracket-
Zr1 small spoiler-
Zr1 spoiler mount brackets-
Optional- you could get the zr1 rear rebar, without it you will have to nutcert your rebar for mounting the spoiler support bracket. And you will have to do some grinding and relocating of the original antenna mounts. We did not get one as it is to much work to remove.

Gm will not sell the big spoiler w/o a zr1 vin yet, so our customer is getting a Weapon-x zr1 spoiler.

The zr1 hatch release bracket will need some tabs cut off it unless you are willing to remove your rebar wich is panel bonded in place. But with tabs removed it fits nicely where the zo6 bracket was, and will give you a guide where your nutcerts should go in your factory rebar.

The rear bumper cover will also need some work in order to fit the zr1 small spolier, more holes will need to be drilled, and some grooves cut to retain the new spoiler, you will need to cut out the sections where the spoiler support bar will protrude, also there is a bracket in the center, heat welded in place, and it will need to be removed.
I beleive this was quoted as an $8k job, and the zr1 spoiler was $6k of that $8k, that was before gm wouldent sell the spoiler.



Lots of grinding in this area.

Default ZTK wing added to a C7 GSCE

I've done a mod to my C7GSCE as well as what James has done. I mounted my GM OEM parts pretty much like James did except for the stamped metal backup bracing for the main mount. I made my own.
Pictures can be found in the Thread C7 parts for sale etc. just do a search for ZR1 ZTK wing.

I'm going to take the rear fascia off my 2019 GS this weekend and see if the holes are there already to accept the ZR1 wing brace. I can't believe they wouldn't be on a 2019.

Poor-sha, I'll be very interested to see if GM built all C7's with the capability to accept the ZR1 wing frame mounts etc...

Here's where I put my antenna's verses James location.

I like that antenna location, I may place them there tomorrow, as they aren't really mounted yet, just setting there in my picture.

I am really wanting to see the rear body of a zr1 without the bumber cover on it (to see where gm placed everything), anyone seen any pictures floating around or know a zr1 owner who has removed there cover.

Thanks for sharing this info guys. I have a Weapon-X ZTX wing on order for my 2019 Z I just got two weeks ago. Hopefully it will arrive soon and I am sure I will be utilizing your info.

I suppose Vortex Generators would drive them absolutely batty!

The wing works, the wing is good, the wing wins races. Enough said!

I pulled the rear fascia off my 2019 GS and took some pictures. It looks like the bolt holes are all there so I ordered the parts to bolt a ZR1 wing to the car.

Thanks for sharing those pics. I'm guessing maybe my '19 Z will be the same, so conversion should be pretty easy.

Is it hard to retro-fit a pre ZR1 C7 Z06 to mount the ZR1 wing?
