New actuator and micro switch

Feb 29, 2012 update on Bandit116's 1982 Mazda Hill Climb Special

New actuator installed. The rear top element of the wing can be set to start laying down at various speeds. For example if you want the wing to start laying down at 80MPH. you would put 40PSI in the actuator. The micro switch is hooked to a green LED on the dash. When the wing starts laying back the green light comes on. Calculations and testing by the previous owner says that you should notice between 5 and 6 HP. increase in a straight line and about 900 increase in the RPM’s. Less drag in a straight line more speed!
