You don't have to...
You can cut some vents directing air to the motor by the motor if your motor overheats but no need to drill big holes in your windsheild.

when you see that hole on cars it's for air flow on nitro cars....If you need to cut a hole on and electric car something else is wrong.......

If your track uses ROAR rules, you are not allowed window openings. You are only allowed holes for body mounts and antenna.

i wouldnt cut a hole thats really only done on nitro cars and even it you did cut one i dont think it would help that much and would make the car less arodynamic

You would lose downforce, & mess up you aerodynamics you want a smooth flow over the car any large hole would disrupt that.
