Wider Tires, New Paint And Exhaust

Doug Thorley Exhaust and trimmed rear pan so it shows - bad result is a lot of dirt and water suck up on the rear window.

I will have no way to prove this but your cut out should provide less drag and better MPG.

Re: Wider Tires, New Paint And Exhaust

Thanks for the reply. I first thought that too, but then again I remember something about spoilers being on the rear so that the low pressure from below and above is extended and comes together way behind the car. And good spoilers and ground effects will keep the back clean. The effect we are seeking with spoilers (and my airtabs) is called Kamm effect and I think what I did hurts this, but time will tell.
