You can get an authentic Kaminari Wing with or without a Carbon Fiber blade.

With TRD, you can only get a fiberglass blade, unless you want the blade to be Carbon Fiber, you'll have to get it wrapped in Carbon Fiber or custom made.

IMO the Kaminari wing is more passive (just like the body kit) whereas the TRD wing looks to be more aggressive due to its edgy-er design.

now here's a question you should ask:

What's the difference between the Kaminari Race Wing (with/without Carbon Fiber blade) and the Rod Millen Motorsports Race Wing (does it have a Carbon Fiber blade option?)

these wings are identical. i dont even know the difference.
prolly the only diff. is the price. thumbsup

^^^really? my shocks arent that bad. i can say that my replica TRD wing is much more heavier than the stock one and that my shocks are holding up very good.

Kaminari Race wing is wider and comes with an Adjustable blade

The wing on the Kaminari is also straight across, but on the RMM wing, it's arched up in the center

There are 2 kinds of shocks fitted to Celicas - the standard shocks will be replaced at the dealer with higher rated ones if you specify a spoiler when you buy your car smile

actually, there are THREE different types of shocks...
https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_1869923810_0_collapsed_2__1.html


A) WITHOUT WING(economy/weakest)

B) WITH WING (standard)...
I have these with my Kaminari wing.
For the most part, they work just fine in California's warm climate.
Cold/damp weather seems to give it a bit of troubles staying up though.

C) WITH WING & WITH REAR WIPER (luxury/strongest)...
This is also the set that comes standard when you purchase the Action Package (aka TRD) wing
