I would not have put that much angle on the spoiler but I suppose we can overlook such a small infraction just this once and let you post.

For a size reference, the front wheel is 26".

I am getting yellow flames added to to spoiler so I angled it fairly steeply to make them more visible.
Plus the downforce is incredible!

Wind Tunnel testing is needed for sure.

I thought it was homemade until I googled it, still nice spin on it.

Sort of forgot about this thread.
Here it is with flames, now it is much, much faster.

i'm not really into the drift thing, but i have a tractor supply adult pedal car i keep thinking might be fun for this. do you know of anyone drifting one? the main thing i'm thinking is it doesn't have enough streering lock to lock to be able to counter steer well enough.

I'm not into drifting either, I use this for cruiser rides, group big wheel rides, or else I bring it on my bicycle trailer when a group of friends is hanging out in the park. Also most of the drift trikes only have foot pegs, no pedals. If I can't pedal it what's the point? With the hard plastic rear tires it does do very nice "power slides' just like your kids Big Wheel did. The front tire is a regular 26" bicycle tire.
