Is giving up downforce and getting more airflow by cutting the largest allowed hole ALWAYS better? Or do you guys ever cut a little smaller hole to gain downforce?

It's been suggested you actually get more cooling from your side windows, than the front one, likewise some of your air flow comes from under the car as well.

i believe the regulations differ from 50 mm to 60 mm.
I cut as small as possible to get downforce, but you have to use the 5`th post in the front middle. I also only cut the right side window and leave the left as it is. I think it allows/gets more top speed.
