The CF lip on the UUC wing is held on nice and tight, and it's not going to come off as the speeds increase. What you need to worry about is the entire wing itself moving against your trunk lid as the winds increase. I did not take the proper precautions for this, and my Hartge wing has slid to the back of the trunk enough to have scored it up nicely - To the point where I will now no longer remove the wing because it's a huge mess underneath.

To be honest, I wish I had never added the wing. I see my friend Corwyn's wingless Estoril M3 all the time, and I get super jealous. I always liked the clean look on the back, and now that I do not have the option of removing the Harte piece - which was the whole reason I chose that spoiler - I find myself really remembering the grass to be a lot greener on the other side.
