you need to be scooting well to get a real benefit from downforce and doesn't it usually/always come with more drag/reduced mileage? plus why have a hole so crap can get in it if someone isn't going to benefit from it? i have holes in my hood now for heat management but it would sure be a waste from the factory like this. brake ducts and routing to the center of the rotor would be fantastic but why put in that effort and expense when like 2% of people are going to use them?

i think it's pretty cool that the holes are there and you can remove shit to actually make use out of them. especially if other shit was already designed out of the way, ie. if they already have a clear/obvious/nice path to snake brake duct hoses around

Sure. I think it would pretty cool to get a side by side on them.
The supra I have just has basic power upgrades, I am still running the twin turbos.

Jalop is all over that car... However... Is it possible that the one on display is simply preproduction? Or as he stated, maybe the translation was lost.
