Mythbusters cynics & skeptics, especially on this site, could easily compel the creators/producers of the show to retest this episode. The show is famous for recreating followup shows from contentious 'busted/plausible' findings. An easy way to reproduce 'bigger explosions' tests. The now famous 'dimples' car should be retested w/ ecomodders' test suggestions. They may have to recreate new 'control' car with the requisite clay layer. From tuft testing, car companies' full size wind tunnel test facilities, different load/constant speeds tests, hypermiling driving techniques, time of day/weather conditions, etc., could be used for several batteries of testing. Any other suggestions?...
