Seen that 1k deposit over here at Kerbeck's.
Im not getting 1 but I am looking forward to your feedback naturally.

Yep! I see what you mean LT. Right you are

I'm not saying I haven't used it as a table.

Longtimer I think I've commented here in the past that I recall in the late '60s one of the big car rags tested the downforce on a '67 Camaro Z-28 with no spoiler and with the stock spoiler at 3 or four different speeds. At that time the numbers and the photos at speed, indicated that for the Camaro, the spoiler started providing measurable downforce just above 100 MPH. Camaros were, of course, always light in the tail.

This was LONG before wind tunnels began to influence design of course. Oh well, not long to wait now.

Frankly I'm not sure at what speed a spoiler makes any difference for a rear-midengined weight bias...might pretty high like 150mph. The rest of the time it's just an aerodynamic drag(?).
I can't say for sure either.
Airflow is not constant over a car.
At speeds over 100 the Aero drag I have been told is 1 to 4th power.

It's Mopar but Richard Petty took A Superbird or Daytona to Bonneville and ran 300 mph. NASCAR special with 1000 Hp Hemi 426.
So that big wing did something ok.

PNHNDLE96CE Maybe this is the base car and the spoiler car is the Z51 car. Either way I like the look without the spoiler right now.

stinger430 Looks a bit leaner now.

-Judging from the velcro on the top edge of the door it seems to me that there was some cammo going up from the door to the bottom bit of the window. I suspected as much.

-Rear end certainly looks more sculpted.

-To my eyes the side scoop still doesn't gel with the rear haunches. Might still be cammo on there....I hope.

-Front end still has me confused. Sometimes I think it has a severe short front overhang, which looks too stubby to me. In other pics the front overhang looks more generous, which I like.

-Looks like a targa top with the C6's double bubble. Nice.
