Rear Wing Simulations

I recently vented the hood on my coupe reducing lift. Now I want to address mid corner oversteer. Using Flow Illustrator - The Free Online Fluid Flow Simulation Tool I put together a few variations on spoilers and wings. It seems to me that this one provides the most downforce with a spoiler Vs a Wing.

This is what I am considering buying now, a Stock Car style spoiler, possibly less drag created behind it.

No spoiler:

vs Wing:

What say you?

I had a former Indy car aero guy help me with mine. And, by help, I mean he told me, "Foxbodies are bricks, put as tall a spoiler on it as the rules allow, almost straight up." That was back in the 90s iirc but I made this two years ago.

I went with this: 5 inches tall. It's almost straight up, seems to improve things.
