Like it. I see it has what appear to be 944 mirrors. Is it possible to use them in a non-electric fixed mode ie just move them into position by hand. I'm rather unhappy with my Vitaloni Turbo mirrors(too small and move to easily). My doors are gutted so I have to use fixed ones.

That's what we use, when we use side mirrors at all. They're pretty draggy.

When I raced the #77, in the later days with higher speed tracks, we completely deleted the side mirrors and ran only the wink panel mirror inside. Probably good for another 1mph on the top end...

I'm a short person and started with a Wink, but the way I had it set up it took up too much interior space. I may have to try refitting it, as I'm a lot more willing to modify stuff. Currently use a curved Longacre. I'm not a fast enough driver to not have good mirrors.

I did find I had to space the Wink down some from being directly bolted to the roof; at the roof, the angle was no good and I couldn't see directly behind, the cage blocked the view. Spaced down a bit, essentially hanging from the a-pillar bars of the cage, it worked perfectly.

The only thing it doesn't cover is a car directly beside, but at that point it's pretty obvious what's going on. I did also add some small spot mirrors down low on the cage a-pillar bars to cover those areas, though I'll admit I never really used 'em anyway, never needed to...
