Default Is the hatch up?

Looks to me the hatch is up? Do the air intakes not take in enough air to feed these turbines?

could just be the pad lifting up...
but on second thought, it'd seem like the turbines would need to breath better than what those two rear scoops could offer.

Seems risky. At high speed you'd think that freekin hatch would lift right off.

i did it once to check my ventilation, to see if i was choking the engine. But i tied down the hatch on the front corners.
