Default I can has takeoff?

Found this a week ago and forgot to post it. Not sure if he put it on backwards, but when I looked at it from the front it became apparent that it's definitely creating lift in the rear. Hooray for ricers; brightening our day.

You just don't get it, do you?

When you create lift, you lighten the car. That makes a better power to weight ratio. How hard is it to understand? Maybe you should do a little research before you go badmouthing someone's ingenuity. The cast...

Having the personality of a small child helps a lot.

wow, you guys are pretty much idiots...

if you create LIFT in the rear, it moves the balance point forward, that causes downforce for the front wheels, and this is a FRONT WHEEL DRIVE car. This, for once, is a spoiler that actually makes sense for this type of car.

I REALLY hope this post is dripping with sarcasm.

Except for the fact that the screws holding that to the car probably couldn't withstand more than 50ft/lbs of force thus:

whatever "lift" is created is insignificant
Due to speed and design, as well as the ****ty aerodynamics of the vehicle to begin with - the front end is already light because of the speed.

The rear end being made slightly lighter only adds to instability, reducing overall obtainable top speed (safely)

I chuckled at your post but I lol'd at Blinden's.

But your eloquent street racer one is still gold.
