That’s what you get for having that “douchebags only” fin on the back of a f*cking Escort!!!! Why do any of you idiots think those are cool? I bet your muffler is super f*cking loud for no reason too. Why is it always the assh0les with the POS cars that think they are making them look and sound like a race car, and it in actuality it sounds like a broken lawnmower. All that crap and my all factory ’87 Civic Si will still smoke you. Sorry for the rant.
Jason that fin gives me atleast 15 to 20 more horse power, and no I did not go out and buy a after market muffler and tail pipe I am not that dumb, I just took a punch and 2 pound hammer and punched holes in the old one to give it that bad a$$ sounding racer sound, and I dont know if you saw but its a LX ! No way your civic can hang with it.
Ok, maybe I’m the idiot, but how does an exterior body modification improve HP???? It may lower your 0-60 time, MPG, improved handling, etc.., but how would it improve HP??? Only mods to the actual mechanical parts of the vehicle would result in increased HP.
“It increases drag, increased drag means less effective horse power. For each degree on a F-1 racer they estimate it robs the equivalent of 1 HP on the straight aways.
So if you install one at the angle most ricers do, you will be robbing your car of almost 30 horses.
The point is that it adds nothing, it only robs you of performance”
“Spoiler only begins to be affective at vary high speeds anyway. Very very high speeds, Like Nascar and Indy fast. If you think you can go 150 to 200 mph then a spoiler might do good. It will keep the rear of your car glued to the track. Other than that they are just for looks and actually will slow you down. Personally they look stupid on passenger vehicles anyway.”
“A spoiler does not add horsepower. A spoiler is intended to put downforce on the rear wheels so that the car has more contact with the road and the rear end doesn’t lift. Most of the time spoilers are just for looks and basically ineffective.”
Why do people put huge spoilers on front wheel drive cars that have like 85 horsepower.That car cant go fast enough for the spoiler to have any effect and I am willing to bet there is no front fasia witch makes your spoiler even more useless but it looks super cool though.
