Default Hardtop spoiler

Figured I'd post a link in case you guys didn't see this yet. Not sure about the areo advantage but it looks cool.

Awesome! I mean, it's stuck to the car with tape. How can it not provide tons of downforce?

Let's disrupt airflow over the roof, create drag, and create lift. OMFG, great idea!!!

Would there not be a benefit to someone running a high mount rear wing? Wouldn't the spoiler direct more air straight back onto the wing?

Turbulent air sucks in general. You want air going under the wing, not on the top.
