No complaint is justified. nobody got antagonistic or angry or argumentative. FUN is the name of the game folks. If its not fun you really should find something else to do.

I am curious though metrompg. was there any difference with the plastic wrap versus just the raw cardboard? the paper is a rougher surface than the plastic. Not sure if tuft testing is even capable of showing such a small difference but it is a curiosity.

I have a feeling even if there is a difference we won't be able to see it since if the forward tufts themselves don't cause problems for the tufts downstream from them I doubt we can measure the difference in surface drag with paper versus plastic.
