I abide by a single rule with regards to aero. If it looks faster, it IS faster. Data just ignores the emotional improvement in my lap times.

The normal basics still apply even to a relative brick. Limit aero intrusion. Low as possible. Limit aero "spoilers" or pieces that just hang out in the air for no real reason.

I'm going to start referring to ineffective aero parts as "emotional aero". It sounds like a term the Japanese would use.

I know the class doesn't allow it, but you need to give me an exception; this is my emotional support aero.

I took the spaceship tailfin off my racecar when rethemeing and gained time. Didn't look right without the tailfin so it's back on the car.
