Raining and a miserable day here, so out of interest I just went back to my aero textbooks and looked at what they had to say on the subject of lift.

Aerohead's theory is completely wrong, and even his favourite reference (Hucho, 1987) doesn't support his theory.

If anyone is interested, I can quote specifics from Katz, Barnard and Hucho. Barnard is the clearest.
Modifying the Aerodynamics of Your Road Car

A really good book that should be added to the library of everyone working in automotive aerodynamics, as well as those making car aero modifications at home. - Rob Palin, former Tesla aerodynamicist
