I don't necessarily believe that venting the air over the hood rather than under the car yields any noticeable downforce; however, judging by how floaty the front of these cars get at high speeds, I wouldn't consider more downforce on the front a "recipe for killing yourself."bentheswift said:If you add grip to the front of the car but not to the rear, what happens... oversteer! And oversteer progressively getting worse as speed increases is... a recipe for killing yourself. Aero packages must be thought out so as to provide a top view center of pressure that is near the center of gravity, so as to provide stability and intuitive grip as speed changes... but big, blunt, closed-cabin passenger cars such as an MR2 and every other street car don't generate much if any downforce (at least not even on the same order as mechanical grip) without much more aggressive modifications than your scoop. Nor do they go fast enough that it matters (regardless of how much we'd like to think it does). Otherwise we'd have a lot more MR2 owners spinning when they decide to go street racing at high speeds, or if lucky at track day.
