Re: Coefficient of Drag on performance?

I just finished watching a cleetus vid where they put corvette with no body panels in a wind tunnel. Adding various cardboard panels it was discovered front end made virtually no diff in cd. But the rear of car just a diffuser made a big dif in cd. Even more important the bald eagle would need an extra 240hp to reach 180mph vs same model stock vette. What i learned... Its very important how air leaves rear of car.

Like the Phoenix, a 13.5 year old post rises from the ashes.
