You see people nowadays ricing out their imports with wings and all the fancy stuff and no mods to the engine, even though i'm sure that car has the power to back it up but you'd think it'd give more drag than downforce...


That what my college professor said back in 1966 and he was the head of the Aero dept. I have raced formula cars with and without wings  give me a wing any time does it make it stick in the corners. In the old days road racing was a drag race from one turn to the next, the guy with the best brakes and most power won. With wings you need a car that can handle also not just squirt and go.
