Yes, wheel strakes will be added next year, when the weather is warm again.

As for tuft testing, yes I would like to perform this at some point, just to help others who are wondering about the angles on the underside, and the angle at which flow separation occurs.

I have an old 333mHz laptop, but would need a digitcam from somewhere. Any ideas on what would work with such a laptop?
