Roll the front windows down. That should create one in the back seat area on the highway.

God no... We are not EVO.




Although I do think the 15 might look good with a roof spoiler a la 2006-7...

Watch EBAY for a few months, then you'll know when only the finest vortex generator is available.

I think the vortex generator looks good if you color match it I had one on my 12 wrx that I color matched the wrb. Looked pretty sick in my opinion. And yes I do know that they are pretty much useless. I just wanted it cuz it looked good.

You guys should all go immediately remove every trim panel from your car. They are aesthetic in purpose only and add nothing to the performance of your vehicle and just weigh it down. While they are not race inspired they must be rice. God forbid somebody has different taste than you and wants their car to look different than yours.

It's been proven to work on a Nissan, so it should work on a Subaru. It's pure science.

It took 2.8 seconds off the cars 0-60mph. Dropped its 1/4 mile times by 2 full seconds and added almost 10mph to the trap speed. All without spending a single dollar or adding any parts that could blow your engine.

Are you sure you swallowed your own puke? "You can't dust for vomit."

Close.....

On the roof....they work if the C-pillar coming off the roof is at a steeper angle. Subarus have a very gentle rear C-pillar angle, resulting in a far less damatic effect on performance. Regardless, to provide any real benefit even IF our application was a more ideal candidate you need to be above ~75mph.

effectively....its an aesthetic piece unless you are involved in a higher form of competitive driving.

I'm pretty sure SPT made one for the 08-14 models, might come out soon or be close to fit

So then the issue is either:

1) I bumped a thread.
2) I said something stupid.

Seeing as this is a forum, it can't be 1.
Seeing as how this is NASIOC, I can't IMAGINE it'd be 2......

Are you literally attempting to berate a member of a forum you moderate based upon their geographical location? What a joke. Get a life.

you clearly have not been around long enough.

SCIC is the long-made-fun-of chapter because their members have abnormally high dumbass post counts. if there is a stupid thread posted somewhere, chances are its from SCIC. Exact same reason we poke fun at high member numbers (like yours, holy **** we're almost at 400k??) or (my personal favorite lately) 2015 specific owners or "2015tards".

get over yourself. you aren't a special snowflake. if you don't like it, you can leave. this is OUR community (as in the collective), not yours (as in personally) to white knight.
