    Looking at wings for a dragster. Why do the TF wings have the cut-outs on the canards? What is the lip on the back of the canards for?

    That is called crenellating. This modification creates more down force and allows the angle of attack to be decreased as per Mike Kloeber when he worked for Shoemacher

    Thanks for the reply. I’ve read that information. I thought it refers to the cut out in the centre of the gurney flap / wicker. Are you saying the cut outs in the top of the canards / end plates increase downforce? What about the lips on the outside edge of the canards / end plates?
