Brings to mind a new question though; when a car is lowered so much and chin spoilered so much that it almost behaves like a surface blister, does the pressure wave change enough to warrant an optimized shape change?

That is to say, the lower you go, the more slope you need at the front?


And in the same vein of thought; the higher you go the more important it is to curve the chin inward and not have an abrupt splitter-like "cut-off" that could cause turbulence below it.

Or are these two different phenomena?
