    it's riceboy mentality to place them humungous rear wing spoilers on front-wheel drive cars.
  • hhhm....siguro it wouldn't hurt to add up style sa FWD vehicle mo by addigin a spoiler. Pero adding a very humongous Wing that has minimal effects sa FWD vehicle will look like a TAMIYA toy car....hihihi:D
  • pang porma lang yun...... d naman talaga kailangan nun e kung fron wheel drive lol

    you gotta be kidding me.. kailangan??? yep, if you have a rear wheel drive or an all-wheel drive.. but not if you have a front-wheel drive like a civic or a corolla...

    funny thing... I rarely see a corolla tricked out.. :lol:

    A rear wing adds stability sa rear ng car. Tehnically it puts much needed downforce which gives better friction/traction between your tires and the road at high speeds. This would make for better cornering sa mga circuit races but totally useless and stupid for a front-wheel drive (fwd) for quarter mile drag racing since straight lang naman yung track.... kung tutuusin dagdag drag lang yan sa pagka-aerodynamic ng mga fwd cars e.

    What them fwd riceboys need more is a front wing (ala f1) or front air-dams than a rear wing/spoiler. :rolleyes:
  • Even for rear-wheel-drive cars, I think installing rear wings is useless if not for the porma-factor. There is no way in normal Metro Manila driving that you'll reach the speeds in which the wing would actually be useful.
