    Thumbs up Came Across Some Cool GT Wing Hardware...

    Hi everyone,

    Was at a annual "Devil in the Dark" 13hr Enduro last weekend at New Jersey Motorsports park! It was a fantastic event and some great racing by all 20 teams that made it out.

    Anyway, I was strolling along the paddock and noticed the Fall-Line BMW M3 sitting there all by herself waiting for me to check her out

    Came across this piece of hardware which peeked my interest. Looks like an awesome way to make quick adjustments! Much want...

    Does anyone know what kind of hardware this is to secure the wing to the wing stands? It looks like a small peg for quick release and make quick adjustments. Can't seem to find the part anywhere. Anyone know where to get it?

    Here is the other side.

    Anddd of course I have to throw in some more shots of the car too

    I'm in the Navy and we have these all over the ship. Next time I go into work I can look around and see if I cant find some info on how/where to order them.

    Also, First Post! Yay.

    That looks like a push in "locking pin" for P.A. speaker rigging system!

    McMaster has a version of those, listed as "All-stainless steel high-tension push-button quick-release pins."

    I tried those but noticed that you can't really tighten them, even if you use washers to take up the slack. That joint will have a lot of play in it.
