Huge Wing = 50WHP!!!!.....

So my friend drives a 91 Integra and is very convinced that adding a huge wing to it will improve downforce on the car and improve performance.... Keep in mind it is a front wheel drive car..... Has anyone else encountered people that seem to beleive this? I mean its comlete bogus and makes me want to him to death.

Yup. I had a guy at work with a 95 Mitsu Eclipse. It was purple with a fibrglass body kit. He needed a wing on the back so he could go 100 mph.

haha. I work as a cabinet-makers apprentice and for the longest time I drove a beater of a 94 Accord. I mean this thing was disgusting with body damage all over the place as well as rust. I was seriously thinking of fabricating a huge wooden spoiler out of plywood or something to put on the back of it as a joke and spray painting it camo. Too bad it got totalled going about 20 MPH.... The focus is a vast improvement. Oh and don't forget that the bigger your exhaust diameter, the faster your car will go. 5 inches is the best on those 1.5 civics. If you can fit your fist in it your good.

Agreed it does nothing for the car. If it's a huge it looks gay but if it's normal size it might look actually nice.

I'm not going into the "wings can be useful no matter the drivetrain, but generic Pepboys wings are for ricers" speech

yeah wings on fwd are basically for looks. i had one on my focus hatch only cause i liked the rally wing appearance and i took the car to shows on a weekly basis and had to set myself apart form the hatchback crowd.

Agreed it might look nice. My friend is talking about getting one of those that looks like it is 2 1/2 feet tall and ends up either in line with the top of the car or over it. Just looks retarded to me
