Got some measurements off of Dark Aero's belly pan to calculate the exit angle.

Length of belly from the end of the diffuser to the end of Dark Aero = 76"
Distance from ground to the bottom of Dark Aero end = 16"
Exit angle from the rear diffuser to the end of Dark Aero = 3.95 degrees.
Overall length = 288".

Rear diffuser lost the bolts on the right front hinge and was flapping a little bit on the way home. I guess it screwed up my numbers a bit.

Got the bolts replaced and bolted the hinge back in. A quick run into Houston in the afternoon was indicating around 25mpg on the Ultragauge.

I had split lock washers on the bolts last time. I've decided to use some thread locker this time.

Updated the rear belly pan with bigger hinges and added supports to keep it from flexing. I didn't do that before and it was flexing during my run up North.

Best mpg on the run West has been an indicated 26.9mpg.

Finally had some time to cover up the crossbeams with the rubber baseboard strips. Zip tied them to the slotted angle about every 8" or so on both angles fer both beams. I'll have to make a run and see if it makes a difference or not.
