    I know wings are used for downforce, which in turn gives the car more grip. What I'm wondering is how much grip this dude needs...

    I understand the concept of downforce and all, but I'd think those would make it more top heavy than anything haha. I'm absolutely sure that abomination does it's job though.... function WAY over form in this case.

    You'll buy my photoshop? lol.

    I hardly think liftoff was the idea here. It's too slow and heavy anyway.

    Exactly my point. Its a front engine car. Obviously, all the weight would be in the front. Why the hell is a wing needed there?

    Chris Rado's Tc... He's put a lot of time into his setup, he's quite a bit faster with that setup. Proven to work. Besides he's running AWD so this front wheel drive talk is moot. If you guys saw videos of his super lap battles, you would jizz.

    Ok gold, well those of us with 4 cylinders would be impressed. And it's more of a function over form thing.

    formula one experimented with front bumper and wheel arch spoilers for a while, it made cars turn 30% faster....

    basically like how this guy has it on the top air scoop and over the side air ducts, but on the front bumper and over the front wheels
