Wicked SS - WIndrestrictor

I just got my Wicked SS windrestrictor. I am hoping to get it installed and have some pictures for you.

It's awesome looking. My setup says "Wicked SS" and it will light up red...

Will update with pictures tomorrow. Unfortunately, it's too cold to see how it works. . .but as soon as I get some warmer days, I will get it out and give you guys some feedback.

It’s too cold to try and use the tape and stick to the car...here’s a picture wirh the light on...can’t wait until top down fun. Sorry for the crappy picture. If I get a warm day this week will get it mounted.

Looks awesome! Do you really think that thing will stay intact since it is only double sided tape holing it down? Especially since you have 2000 HP!!!

Very good question. I was thinking that I might find a way to anchor in addition to the tape, but I will know more after I get it installed. My guess is that it really doesn't take the direct flow of wind, but more the buffeting that happens with wind flowing over the windshield.

I would think it's just taking the amount of wind that would otherwise be hitting you in the back of the head. Which isn't going to be enough to make the restrictor come loose. I watched their 6Gen install video and it's a lot of tape being used. It looks pretty sturdy to me.


OP - thanks for posting this. Now I need to get one for myself. It will have to be custom. I just haven't figured out what yet.

Did you or are you going to hardwire the thing or going to use the powerpack?

I've had mine up to about 140 with no problems, makes the interior a lot quieter and less turbulent. You can carry on a conversation at hiway speeds without shouting.

I watched their install video. Hardwiring looks pretty straightforward so that is what I will do. The only reason I would consider the powerpack is if I only intended to light it up at a car show or for short periods of time.

Yeah...I doubt I will ever light it up. I canít imagine driving with it lit up...so then what, light it up to park? For me, lighting it up was a novelty, but thought it would make for some cool pictures.

Havenít had a chance to get it out on the road with the top down. Iím curious if anyone has tried to connect it to the cars controller and have it match the interior.
