It is a REx, so it does need to breathe a bit, but I wonder if just adding an exhaust louver over that rear most opening flat with the rest of the covering would help. Supposedly the REx version has a 0.01 cd penalty, and I can't figure any other place that could be coming from aside from that opening.
Looks like it's already got an integrated splitter.Any more,and you'll begin to induce drag,through downforce.I found this to be the case on my truck at the wind tunnel.
Lift should never be an issue at legal posted speeds.
