    im not sure pero before pa kumalat yan spoilers saka skirts na yan eh napanood ko sa tv, something like a documentary about trucks na bumibyahe sa europe. since cross-country ang byahe nila eh ok daw na lagyan ng spoilers saka skirts yun truck para medyo bumilis yun takbo saka bumaba yun fuel consumption... im not sure though kung significant yun effect

    You want a "rear-wing", I think this is the most common term if the wing is placed on top of the trunk lid (not hood as you described ).

    On most of our rides it is purely aesthetic lang, to give character to the car. This is a great add-on only if done properly meaning it should not be ridiculously shaped or oversized na parang sampayan na.

    As a heads up, the rear wing is used in race cars to push the car downward so that it won't skid off the corners when it turns at high speeds. Same principle sa wings of a plane only in reverse lang; a plane's wings generate "lift" when propelled at high speed. On a car the wings angle is reversed to create that push down effect.

    There are a number of these available, the more popular ones is the R-Type and S-Type.

    Actually, since most spoilers are kind of useless anyway, I'll take the ducktail over the wing, as it doesn't block your view out the back.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    ^^^ Not only that, hindi na kelangan pang butasan yung trunk.

    yan din isa sa reason why i decided to remove my car's spoiler - harang sa view. plus di na sya bagay nung nagpalit ako ng rims from 17" to 15". eheheheh.

    if your car is FWD, a spoiler has no performance benefits.

    it's really to help RWDs and AWDs keep the back wheels in contact with the ground.

    para saan ba ito?
    o pormal lang?
    saan nakakabili at magkano?

    aka: trunk spoiler, rear wing, ducktail. (may kulang pa?)

    unless porma gusto mo or if you are into racing, dont get one.

    i have seen one before installed on a sedan, spoiler which is higher than the roof. thats very ugly.
