roof vent

whats the point of it, becuase as far as i can tell its just a bit of material stuck on for effect, so in actual reality if this is true it would cuase friction for the aerodynamics

sorry should be in exterior section

alot of people have the roof scoops fitted to look like rally cars though

The rally cars have this vent as no air con. It is surprising how much air rushes into the car when traveling along at 30-40 mph I would not like the roof vent open at high speed. The cars that have roof vents are a type of copy of the rally cars but most have air con anyway. When its hot I switch on the air con and open the roof vent for a few mins the car cools down in no time...
