Default how many vent holes on your body do you cut out?

At my local track I see alot of people cut out 2-3 holes in the rear of the windshield at around 3 inch diameter. I have even seen people with no rear windshield Besides the hole on the front for refueling how many necessary holes should I cut out? Does anyone have an example of how they cut their vent holes on their car? I figure 1 in the rear so that the air can pass thru it and not let it cycle under the hood?

Ideally for maximum ventilation to the engine you should also cut out both front side windows.

Those and the big holes (hole in the rear window) will help keep the engine from cooking

How big of a hole shoud I cut out for the sides and rear? What if I cut out the whole rear windshield, would that be too much?

1 or 2 ,2" holes in the rear and the 2 front side windows should be enough, if you cut the whole back window you may be weakening the body.

i was but i cant afford the constant buying of parts, the r12 is a fast car dont get me wrong, but it doesnt take much to upset the car, serpent is a lot stronger and more reliable.
