    Good write up Tony. Enjoyed the read.
    Totally agree. Toyota will have done all they can with in the limits of their design budget. If a company thinks that with a fraction of that budget, it could design a body part that would make a significant positive difference to the car's performance, it is having a laugh. Go faster stripes anyone.

    The original post should be a tech reference document. Well written Tony.

    Sealing the whole of the underfloor to feed the diffuser will also seal in the rad air exit, so it will overheat. These things need designing with the cooling system in mind, too. Getting a road car low enough to effectively work a diffuser will be "interesting", although from the looks of some of the MKIV's these days people are trying hard

    Great post very informative, if you don't mind I've copy/pasted the post as a thread on the independent forum I'm a member on here in Ireland.
