    AirTech Race Tail Section

    I am considering picking up the Race Tail from AirTech and was wondering how that can be installed? Is there tabs for bolts like on the stock tail or do you need to fabricate holes and mounting hardware? Thanks

    I am not sure what you are trying to ask since I do not know what you mean by bumper. Also it would help if you were clearer as to what tail section you were refering to from Airtech. I can tell you that none of the bodywork from Airtech come with mounting holes drilled. Unless you are referring to their stock style tail you will need to fabricate mounting brackets. With a little creativity you can make just about any tail fit a hawk. How it looks is another matter all together.

      This is a cool race tail that has the seat pan area filled in for use with closed cell racing foam, available through us.

        You are going to have to fabricate mounting brackets. Also you are going to have to create a support across the upper rear portion of your subframe (behind the seating area). You will need to add a support under the seating area to raise the tail section a little and to help support your weight. (Some guys use wood for this). Also you may want to make attachment points that go out from the sides of the subframe to the tail section up in the seating area to help support it. When I ran that tailsection it seemed to stress crack in the area along the sides of the seat pad where they curve down from the stress of hanging off it. I am sure someone here can post pics of how they mounted thiers as some of the NE area racers are using this tail.

        The easiest way to mount this tail is to find one of the old Hawk Connection (or was it a Moto-morphic?) aluminum subframes that were designed to accept that tailsection. I may have an extra but I will need to look around. -C

                  Thats not twinkle , it's bling son - BLING!


                  I'll take pics of a stock subframe modded for a race tail when I wake up.There are a million quick and dirty ways to do it,most of which are mercifully hidden - just depends how much you value form:function.
