Alright. Time for some more modifications. This time we were able to make a cardboard spoiler for James' Bug. This spoiler alone made this otherwise stock car, stable at speeds in excess of 300 mph! Part of this is due to quality of materials. We were able to obtain cardboard that was used to ship parts for a NASCAR Winston Cup race car. Fast parts for a fast car came out of the box, so why wouldn't it help make this bug fast? And did it ever. This car can hook up so well of the line. Spinning the rear tires is no longer a problem as this spoiler provides enough downforce to keep an airplane grounded.*

Step 1

First, find the base posts for your spoiler. Then cut the ends to fit to your mounting surface. We cut ours at an angle, then folded it, so that when jamed into the tailgate, it stood at a slight rearward angle.

Step 2

Next, we attached the base posts to the car.

Step 3

Now the crucial part. Use a marker to write anything you can think of on the spoiler. We chose to go with Jappanese lettering as our main theme, with all the usual other names commonly found on a ricer as well. You will find it benificial to write "Sponsored by my boy Uncle Ben" on the side, as this seemed to help as it thanks Uncle Ben for his fine rices, which your car will be named after.

Step 4

Next, attach the top wing of the spoiler. We used high quality dry wall screws, as shown above in the picture of our "Sponsored by Uncle Bens".

Step 5

Now the middle wing.

Step 6

And now the final, bottom wing. Keep in mind that for this style spoiler, each wing must get progressively narrower in order to fit between the side supports. We also tucked this into the trim on the body to help the spoiler balance.

Road Test

So how does this model work when driving. We'll let you take a look and decide for yourselves.

* These figures were attained when the spoiler was reconstructed using high quality aircraft glue and bondo rather than drywall screws. Spoiler does not self distruct when assembled using these components.
