Honestly, I think both designs are great. At first I liked option B slightly more, but now I might like option A slightly more. In the end it just doesn't really matter. Your attention to detail is great, but that's such a minor consideration in the total package. I can't imagine someone having a strong preference of one over another.
I'm not in the market for a wing, but if I were, this would be it.
I am curious to know how the two designs look while on the entire car. That could have an affect on my opinion of the aesthetics.
Nice work, as usual!

I like A, at the end of the day you should go with what works and is most functional imo. All your parts are function first and foremost, that trend should continue on the wing

So with the wing mounting so far forward... Does the trunk still open?

I like B a little better but both look awesome. I cannot wait to buy this.

A wing on a 200 hp car is just stupid. Do you people realize this?

A wing is even more important since you can't make up for the loss in cornering velocity with horse power

Both bug me, and it took me a bit to realize why. I'd prefer one where the top curve mirrors the curve of the trunk. That's probably somewhere between the two. Also would prefer curves rather than straights, but that's all probably not worth the cost.

I like A consistently. B looks gimpy at anything other than zero.

I far prefer option A aesthetically. Good luck with this project - I think my driveshaft absolutely rocks, so I know firsthand that you make a great product!

If performance is roughly equal for both, this is too tough to call without seeing it on a full car model. I'd mostly want to see how the angle of the upright top-panel looks with the slope of the rear glass and upsweep of the trunk decklid and rear fenders.

Interesting design with the mounts so far forward. I would have concerns if it produced more downforce that it would really deflect upwards the front of the trunk or rip the front bolt out given the leverage the design creates.

Almost as stupid as running a wing on a 100hp car like all those silly SAE teams. I am sure they would be very receptive to your wisdom.

It seems that there are trade offs with or without a wing. The increased drag via added downforce has to have an effect on end of straight speed while increasing corner exit speed so I'm sure that the benefits\detriments will be track dependent?

Not to mention the need for aero at the front to minimize the understeer that the additional rear downforce will create?
