That's an interesting two-tone cut line.

You can make a brick fly if you put a little wing on it.

You can make anything fly if you have enough thrust

Wouldn't you agree the little wing helps?

Baja racers spend a portion of their time in the air.

I suspect that wing has been optimized for shoving the vehicle down. It's above the CG, COULD be behind the COP, and the spoiler/trim tab is a large portion of the overall area so it would be predominate force. It's more like they found a piece of wrecking yard wing that was the right size, slapped it on, then fixed the bad features.

It's also hard to determine what incidence it's running at. I suspect negative based on the last picture but don't fathom what the actual airflow actually is.

It's also just what it says on the tin.
