Default cutting/drilling rear wings to adjust drag

hi all
im just sorting out the new wing and bodyshell on my buggy. i know we cut the rear wing down, but i was wondering if any one drills holes in them with a body reamer, like tuner cars, and how does it affect handling, is t worth a try ?

Do you mean drilling holes in the gurney bit of the wing, instead of cutting it?

Iíve not done it, but I believe JConcepts have a wing marked out with dimples, if you want to drill it as well.

Thats the one, i think it will help the wing stay in better shape for longer if its uncut, but not sure how many holes or how big to make them
