    Looking to see if anyone here has a vortex generator on a hatch, and if it provides any difference in aero. I cant imagine it does but just looking to see what others think.

    Agreed on the functionality.

    I'm not sure how I feel about em. Last night I thought I liked them, this morning not as much. Oh well, do you like em?

    Meh, not my cup of tea. It won't serve any purpose at all for functionality.

    If you think about it...it actually counteracts the effects of a spoiler on a hatch.

    For one...none of us will drive fast enough on public roads to ever warrant needing a spoiler. If you do, you're a moron.

    For two...the vortex generator will break up air flow streams since it is right before the spoiler...this will actually counteract the downforce you want to create by having the spoiler...if you were to ever even drive that fast...

    I like it. I also like the wing risers that perrin makes, Not sure how they would look together.
