Default Documentation from Subaru about the STi wing?

I'm looking for any sort of material from Subaru about the STi wing that mentions it's lbs of downforce at certain speeds and any other hard evidence supporting it's functionality.

the sti was created so subaru could go rallying.

and yes, the wing works in rally and does create downforce.... thus it's existence.

search: www.swrt.com and www.subaru-global.com for specifications.

I think it lays down 80Ibs of downforce at 75mph.

Here's a link to another recent thread.

Likely a search on google will be more fruitful than searching on this board.

Also, I think someone pointed out the wing used in the WRC *looks* the same, but in fact has more incidence on the wing, thus providing more downforce than the stock USDM STi wing. Seems like it also has several vertical stiffeners mid-span as well.

EDIT: Damn...I'm an idiot.....sorry.
