What I mean is something with four wheels that looks like a normal car .

The best figure that I have seen for an semi-normal looking car was .16 for the Precept.

( Which to me looks a lot like a Nissan Maxima with wheel covers )

So Phil, it sure would be interesting to see some results on a top speed test run at the Texas Mile. ( Down near Houston ) It's expensive though - around $ 250 but it sure beats driving to Utah and getting salt on your chassis .
Can you imagine though if you could see what difference your current aero mods make on a top speed run ?
