Although, there appears to be another spoiler type that was seen in photos from an auction at Indy. They show two spoilers, one is the RS spoiler and one is a slightly larger spoiler (not the wing spoiler) but apparently not the blade spoiler.

My initial guess would be that the 2nd larger spoiler from the Indy pic is actually a concept spoiler. Those were larger but similar in style to the RS/SS spoiler that is available for production. Since it was an auction item, I could see the value in getting people to bid for it.

Every piece of info we have says the dovetail is the blade, but I find something confusing. From the getgo we were told the blade could be mounted on with the existing RS/SS spoiler holes. Thats great, except the dovetail has those two extensions that sit on both rear quarter panels. I have no idea how they sit on there, unless new holes are necessary to get them to stay put. Have we figured this out yet?

I believe the dovetail spoiler is NOT the blade spoiler. The blade spoiler is a one piece design which you can see on Bumblebee1. The dovetail is that 2nd gen "wannabee" 3 piece spoiler you see on the Dale Jr. car.

The more I look at the photos that are out there, the more curious I am to see the blade without the side pieces as well. While I might be wrong, I really don't think those side pieces are going to make much if any difference to the functionality of it. So if it does look good without 'em, that just might be the way to go!
