So not the trim round the edge of the bumper, usually black plastic. But the other bits?

looks great.
Do those openings go all the way through? Is it an aerodynamic thing, like why all the honda guys cut holes in the back of their bumpers?

some and some... lots of air can end up trapped, swirling around in the cavities of your rear end.

just like ur butt.

all this air causes lift, in small amounts.

the "speed holes" act to reduce the pressure in the cavities, sucking your butt back down to the grizound.


i bet ivan or rally could chime in with a more scientific explination.. i just like talking about butts.


im pretty sure the actual MINI GP just has these inserts on top of the normal plastic honeycomb grills, with no negative space or holes behind them. thats a Samtrak thing.
