On some vehicles, a wing or spoiler can help increase downforce on the rear of the automobile to extend traction at excessive speeds. On a Toyota Corolla, a entrance-wheel drive car, a traditional spoiler would be counter-productive because it would take downforce away from the drive wheels. That’s why a spoiler on a Corolla is designed for seems, not for performance.

Toyota Corolla Spoiler Installation Instructions

1. Pop the trunk and apply the blue painter’s masking tape along the whole rear section of the trunk lid where you need the spoiler to go. Apply it in all places to minimize damaging the paint.
2. Set the spoiler onto the trunk, then step again and look at the place it sits. Regulate accordingly.
3. Measure the space between the posts that assist the spoiler and the sides of the trunk. Regulate the spoiler so it is centered. Use the tape measure to adjust the spoiler ahead and again on the lid.
4. Trace the perimeter of the spoiler posts onto the blue painter’s tape using the permanent marker. Then carry the spoiler up and measure the space between the side of the spoiler and the threaded insert on the underside where it bolts to the trunk. Transfer that measurement to the trunk lid. Set the spoiler back on the trunk and double examine your measurements, tilting the spoiler up and down to ensure the holes you’re about to drill are in the best spots.
5. Drill the holes in the trunk lid utilizing the drill and metal drill bits. Start off with a small diameter bit corresponding to 1/eight-inch, then step up progressively until you get to one dimension bigger than the bolts that secure the spoiler.
6. Set the spoiler on the trunk lid and have your assistant hold it in place. Raise up the trunk so the spoiler is perpendicular to the automobile and you’ll entry the underside of the lid. Be certain the holes line up correctly.
7. Peel back the painter’s masking tape and take away it from the trunk. Have your assistant hold the spoiler down on the trunk as you carry it up, then thread in the spoiler bolts into the posts utilizing the three/eight-inch ratchet and socket. Ensure all of the bolts are proper before you drive the vehicle.

I bought a brand new 2009 Dodge avenger the other day and I am picking it up tomorrow. However the version that I am getting (SXT) does not come with the spoiler on it. How much would it cost for the dealership to put one on that is just like the Avenger R/T version? And how long would it take them to do it?

I need a website that shows downforce generated by cars. Even different sites that talk about specific cars is fine, but I need like ten different cars and how many pounds at what speeds. Thanks.

So if the maximum height is only 2 meters off the ground, will it take less power than if the maximum height was 500 meters?
If so, what is a relevant equation involving the following factors:
MaxHeight
Weight
RequiredDownforce
I am refering to a down force constant required for an object to hover, not the initial force.

its a 2008 and i want to remove the spoiler. is it removable and does it affect its performance?

thanks :)

whould making slits in the body at an angle keep it down without too much drag?

During select Firestone Indy Lights races, the broadcast team will give out a secret word on air which you will be able to redeem for 800 points.

Arie Luyendyk and Robbie Buhl were discussing the keys to the race. The keys were ________, timing the pass, and weather conditions.

If your going into the corners faster then wouldnt there be a higher chance for a wreck?

downforce achieved by the use of a spoiler on a car
and consequently what effect does traction have on straight line speed?

I was watching T.V. and one of the commentators said there would be more overtaking if downforce was eliminated because you wouldn’t have to back off your opponent when you were going into a corner. Any thoughts?

As far as i’m aware the downforce available from front and rear wings will be significantly reduced for the 2009 season

I saw a Honda Civic over the weekend with a large sheet-metal spoiler/wing on the trunk. However, rather then being angled to create downforce, it had a negative angle that would create lift. By creating lift on the rear of the car, does it give you the feeling that your going fast when you’re not?

I need to research this question for a class project.I do understand downforce but do not understand how “friction” has to do with this.Thanks and any thoughts would be great!

Alright, let’s get a few things straight here. The area that NASCAR didn’t like on the 24 and 48 cars is NOT covered in the rule book, yet. With this being the first year for the COT these things will happen. Second, a road course is not the type of track where you will get an advantage from modifying the front end for more downforce. You do not reach the speeds that would give you a noticeable difference one way or another. Jeff and Jimmie have won the most races over the last 5 years because they are great drivers and they have crew chiefs that are not afraid to try new ideas. Sometimes it doesn’t work out but at least they are trying and NOT waiting around for someone else to beat them to the punch. Say what you will but this was not as big of an infraction as many of the other violations that ARE in the rule book. I expect there will be more to their penalty but it should not be too severe. Your thoughts.
Admiral: The angle of the rear wing is black and white IN the rule book. They MODIFIED the mounting brackets to change the angle of the wing. That is a totally different deal than what happened with the 24 and 48 cars.
I do realize that downforce is good at a road course. However, the speeds they are going in the corners, where more downforce would be beneficial, are such that they would not benefit hardly at all from tweaking the front end. I do suspect they were seeing if they could get away with it now to get an advantage down the road. Don’t get me wrong, I know they were pushing things too far. It’s just a matter of how this ranks compared to other violations this season.

I noticed tonight in qualifying that the rear quarterpanels are about 6 inches higher than the rest of the car. If lowering them down closer to the ground like the rest of the car, would that increase downforce therefore making the car handle better? You would think that it would keep the cars from getting loose in the bump draft on superspeedways also. Thoughts?

How can the downforce be improved with a smaller surface, or is this an FIA regulation?

If that cap coming off would give him such an advantage with downforce why wouldn’t they take his win away and give it to the second place finisher?

Apart from the obvious
How can i use the Downforce formula?, what exactly is each measurement refering to in the equation?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! this is for an A level Physics experiment.

I understand that formula one cars are so low to make the air flow much faster underneath the car, which reduces pressure and increases downforce, but the air exits at the diffusor. What do all of the slats actually do? I know they make more downforce but what is the actual aerodynamic effect of it?

How can i draw the free body diagram for an F1 racing car on a curve? taking into account downforce which i dont know where to place on the FBD

The spoiler raises at approx 75mph. Does it actually create downforce, or does it just create turbulent air to negate and forces of lift that may develope at speed??

I’m honestly bored out of my mind. The sissy politics of F1 seem to have to outshone the action on track (a common problem in F1). What is your outlook for the rest of the season?

BQ: Will the trick diffusers ultimately bring downforce levels in high speed corners to a point where the FIA intended them not to be?

I’ve heard on many occasions that the downforce created by the spoiler of an F1 car is enough, in theory, to allow it to drive upside down. I’m just wondering if anyone has ever heard of or seen this actually attempted.

Do I approach the curve at racing speed or faster, it seems to be that the faster one goes the more downforce one gets, the car becomes really stiff and usually spins out of control and tumbles, now at racing speed it just drifts for about a second and then it looses power completely and overturns. I thought Grid was difficult but nfs appears to impossible. Any suggestions?

The latest arguement, which is restricting Red Bull to blow only half of their exhaust air to produce downforce, yet Mclaren are a loud all of their exhaust flow…which team would excell if this diffuser was scrapped? Ferrari?

I know it has something to do with downforce but how does that make the car go faster?

I’ve set the jumpers to take some slack off the suspension and give it a little more power at the flywheel, but I’m having trouble transferring the power to the road. My downforce is fine because I’m using 34/72′s and don’t have any issues with torque. Anyone come across this problem before? Cheers,

NASCAR is tryin’ to bring back the packs by reducin’ the size of the rear spoiler to reduce downforce and makin’ the restriction less, accordin’ to MSNfoxsports. They are also tryin’ to change the way the drivers communicate to hand signals and spotters bein’ dominant as it was before the two-car racin’.

Air rushing over the wings of high-performance race cars generates unwanted horizontal air resistance but also causes a vertical downforce, which helps cars hug the track more securely. The coefficient of static friction between the track and the tires of a 525-kg car is 0.914. What is the magnitude of the maximum acceleration at which the car can speed up without its tires slipping when a 3860-N downforce and an 1070-N horizontal air resistance force act on it?

Just thinking, cuz a proper spoiler is designed to “spoil” the air, reducing drag, not create downforce. Would you be able to buy one? Or would it have to be custom designed for your car?

I’m not saying I want to improve aerodynamics, I’m saying would it be hard.

If you were getting it custom designed, where would you do that?

I am doing a Research Report for Physics A2 and am trying to find out how much downforce is created by the F1 car at varying speeds.

I know that at max speed it has been said to be around 2.5 times the force of gravity.

Does anyone know figures for how much is created at say 50mph increments, in terms of how many times the force of gravity.

What sort of relationship is there between velocity and downforce, is it proportional, exponential etc.

Thank you to all

On GT1, When you bought racing modifications you could change the downforce. On GT3, some cars are tunable this way, and some are not. Can you still buy aerodynamic packages, and how can you tell if the car you are about to buy has tunable aerodynamics?

I’m building an open-sided carport with post set in holes filled with concrete. I can calculate the wind load on the carport, and its weight, but I need to know whether the force of the concrete in the hole is sufficient to counteract the upforce of the wind (minus the weight of the carport). I understand that this would be somewhat dependent on the soil type, but we could assume neither the extremes of sand or bedrock.

I’m unsure but at this stage it seems unlikely for Ferrari and Red Bull because Red bull have been hurt because they cannot use blown diffusers and Ferrari have huge downforce issues. At this stage it could well be Jenson Button. What are your opinions?
