The rear wheel usually runs in a low pressure area so air usually goes in rather than out at the rear wheel. Completely Overzealous is designed to use that effect for ventilation.

Something does not add up - shouldn't air move from high pressure to low pressure?
I think you meant that rear wheel is "high" pressure area, which makes sense given airfoil pressure distribution.

Yes, the rear of an airfoil is a high pressure zone and the widest point, a low pressure zone, so you'd expect air to enter the rear wheel aperture and exit the front wheel aperture.
