    Has anyone ever put full belly pans under a Prius v? Any tips or tricks using the ones from a Gen-III?

    A full belly pan smooths airflow beneath the car, reducing drag, improving efficiency.

    Also used on high performance vehicles to control airflow beneath the car to maximize efficacy of rake and rear diffuser in creating downforce, improving road-holding but increasing drag.
