duh. Front end downforce or lift reduction is a little bit more difficult though.

how much does having the soft top kill our drag coefficient versus the hard top? And yeah urban once you get the rear spoiler you are going to want a large front splitter to keep the front down as well.

Aren't you selling off everything for your car again? I'm confused.

I figured he just liked us better than the z car dorifto forum.

Here's a multi page thread just recently about rear wings.
