Heh. Back in the 80s Car & Driver did a road test on a riding mower. They described the downforce package (underbody fan) in great detail, concluding that the air collecting bag was a bad idea because when operated offroad, it quickly became filled with crushed vegetation. That deficiency, and the rig's low top speed made themagazine question the need for a downforce generator like that.
