The main problem with my belly pan is not the rear exit angle. But the lack of front airdam. The problem is too much air is taken under the car and as it works its way to the rear it piles up, till it touches the ground and then tumbles. This problem is exaggerated when the car is loaded because the ride height in the rear can be reduced a further 3". I've found that a belly pan requires more design than I originally anticipated. I know what I need to change but lack real motivation now.
2002 Saturn SL
sohc + 5spd = 50mpg
