Wing or diffuser?

Hi guys

I'm trying to work out what's the next step in aero development for the race car, which is going to have the biggest impact - make the car faster!

I've got a splitter and flat under tray (back to the sway bar) at the front, matching side skirts, although nothing flat extending into the middle of the car from the bottom of the skirt...

It seems like the next step is either a GT style wing or a diffuser.

What do you think?

A question, do you need it?

Are you having problems with oversteer in slow/fast corners, not enough grip in high speed corners? And so on?

I started when "young" and stupid with a big Re-A GT wing in the rear, and made my car understear. Over the years i have fiddled abit with the front getting it better. This year im gonna fiddle abit more with it to see if i can get it to get more balanced. Working up some more experience heading to the semi tube frame race car build starting this fall.
