Good job of chopping through a number of sources and putting it in a nutshell.

Something else. If you think of it, the vehicles of the folks on this site operate in a fairly small air speed range and are all (very) roughly the same length, so the Reynolds numbers will be fairly close. Compared to the Reynolds number range for aircraft the envelope we are talking is tiny.
