That seems to be a SXi with a big spoiler! Frankly speaking that spoiler will only match cars like Lancer!

Looks very good....except that even if it really works, it will tend to press down the back of the car reducing traction at the drive wheels, which happen to be in the front..

Hey I've seen that car parked next to my Alto in a signal....its got a great engine....by the sound of it...and guys the front doesnt look bad either. The "dude' in it was listening to 50 Cent and was accompanied by a hot chic.

That spoiler looks like crap. I think the chick would have been better looking. Otherwise it is a nice looking car.

The next time you see the car, you really should take a pic of the chic.... Atleast she don't create downforce!!

Default REAL spoilers

When will someone here start making a REAL spoiler(s) that really works and provides stability at high speeds (not that we would achieve those speeds on cow-infested roads, though)?

I am thinking one of the hobby R/C plane guys should be able to design and build a decent one for 1/10 the price of these poser ones....
