Yes, you can have too much downforce, but it looks aero to me otherwise.

Unfortunately, the Intrepid also created more downforce than its rear suspension uprights could handle. At Watkins Glen in 1991, after qualifying half a second off the pole, Tommy Kendall’s #65 Intrepid lost its left rear wheel as the track’s high speed banked corners created more vertical load than the car’s components were ever expected to see. Kendall broke both legs but survived the crash thanks to the carbon-fibre monocoque, and sat out the rest of the season but would race for Jim Miller again in 1992.
