Actually those things are on every racecar. They prevent a racecar from flipping whenever they spin out. When the driver goes in reverse to try and regain control, they flap up to help keep the car on it's wheels.
Life's like a novel, with the end ripped out. ~ Rascal Flatts
ROOF FLAPS:These flaps are sections at the rear of a race vehicle's roof that are designed to activate, or flip up, if the air pressure flowing across them decreases. In the case of a vehicle turning backwards, the tendency for an uninterrupted flow of air is to create lift. The roof flaps are designed to disrupt that airflow in attempt to keep the vehicle on the ground.
lol I love that darn glossary it has everything ;D

Well, also, remember Mater says "Git-R-Dun! I tought him that!" And MAter is talking about driving backwords. And to drive bakwords, you need rear-view mirrors. Thus, the "flaps" on Lightning are rear-veiw mirrors.
ehhh..then how can he see them? their on top of his head. plus i don't see no mirrors on those things their for controling themselves during high speed..such as protection from spinning out like da king
