BUT BUT - they add weight to the front end!

of course there is that whole scooping air thing that adds wind resistance and the fact that it is an SC car.

Gordy'* C3 has those ones too, he wants a real ram air hood.

They're not functional, but they do look MEAN, and when you're driving you feel like the car wants to eat things.
