Re: Lightning kickup rudder

If you are planning on doing 1 Class racing with your Lightning you will find that a kick up rudder is not allowed.
After a quick check in a few places I can find no prefab kick up rudders for a Lightning - probably because it is not "Class allowed".
If you are not racing your Lightning then it wont matter what you do.

Probably a lot cheaper to make one yourself than buy a prefab one anyway.

Thank You for the heads up on the racing. I do have a race ready rudder. Just looking for something for some Eco touring.
