Default Ducktail vs. Wing spoiler

I know there are tons of people who LOVE the ducktail and will swear by it but Im just wondering what the performance stats are compared to a wing spoiler. Which one creates greatest downforce, least drag at higher speeds etc? Or are the spoilers on our cars too small to actually help with anything anyways? And does anyone know of a spoiler out for our Mustangs that are adjustable?

the duck tails and wings are pretty well useless except for causing drag.

Unless you plan on doing some serious racing or do high speed runs on like the 1/4 mile or something like that, the wings and spoilers and just for looks.

its not enough to be worried about unless you are planning on runnign the 1/4 on some pretty hot times. they just go wingless or put on a drag wing, but no one said functional was pretty
