So the big holes infront and behing don't affect downforce. That is good. Was worried it might. Should they then both be in the middle of the window.

Any hole anywhere on the body will affect down force to a point.. Any plane facing the forward direction of the vehicle will affect its drivability when changed.. However large or small the difference may be ..

here is a guide to all sorts of stuff including suspension, aerodynamics etc.. its a brain ache to get through it all but its awesome once you get you rhead around it.. Cheers

Just a though, wouldn;t holes in the windows and a hole in the back be ideal. The air gest sucked in and out, with minimal downforce affected?

Yes that could work , But without a hole in the front window, re fuelling is a pain ... What you dont want is air coming in from the side and being forced down ..

Could always make a small iternal winglet below the hole in the back to direct the air down. act as a rear downforce wing.
