Also, by being higher up the rear spoiler will probably help increase the pressure on the rear window = less drag. Basically it would 'trick' the air into seeing a shallower taper at the rear.

Hmm. Makes sense. So basically, if a person wanted the higher MPG SC1 and wanted the lower drag of the SC2, it's just a matter of changing spoilers.

It seems that way, unless someone can find a notable difference in the nose. I can definately see the right spoiler making a up a 0.02 difference in Cd. Actually, the right one can make much more...
