    Why does the FiST rear spoiler have slots? Anyone have any aerodynamic insights?

    Pushes air under the spoiler for downforce.

    It wouldn't create downforce. It simply creates more drag and reduces lift.

    The slots look good, although in the 2018 FiST they 've been deleted in favor of a flat and little longer spoiler
    2015 FiST, track day car.
    Frozen white, stock engine and engine control unit, BMC air panel, Eibach springs kit.
    Rear seats, plastic rear panels deleted.

    less water pooling, and maybe to reduce turbulence along the edges? the way they're shaped they probably balance pressure from behind the hatch to top edge of the slipstream. Would be interesting in a wind tunnel to see what smoke does across the holes.

    Looks the same to me.

    https://www.ford.com/cars/fiesta/models/fiesta-st-line/

    EDIT: The US model, not the EU.
    2017 Magnetic, everything but the Recaros. MP 215, mountune shift kit and shift knob, Husky floor liners. That's all I'm doing, I swear!.. OK, I lied. Also added an intake hose and symposer delete. But that really is all, I swear this time! Okay. just one other thing: A mountune RMM. Now I really am done, I promise!
