Well I was thinking the v3 or smaller ducktail wouldn't be too much drag but I might as well get a gt wing then...or maybe I should just go with the 10 series spoiler?

I have a base frs so looking for any suggestions for a spoiler that helps aero at street speeds?

Also make sure you vlog your frs build and remind everyone how much "heart and soul" you put into your build.

Amigo, by definition, any aero device that might help performance (downforce?) is going to increase drag. If it doesn't increase drag, it ain'ta gonna give you no downforce.


There ain't no free lunch.

The spoiler the dealers add on are perfectly symetrical in design with the stock trunk/body lines

I have a OEM spoiler, I really like it. As for MPG it makes no diffrence if you are like me and drive hard, so I say go for one you like the looks of.

I'm 20 and still learning I guess I'll get duckbill...not sure between v2 or v3

So with more drag you get more downforce?

No.

You can also have up force, lateral force or neutral force that will create drag all dependent on what is creating the force.
