They don't call it a fast-back for nothing. I think they got this one down to like .19 CD.
Hot Rod Magazine recently carried a story about a 4-cyl 'cuda called 'Blowfish' with Cd 0.20 that exploded its engine during an LSR attempt at Bonneville.
Beautiful car!
Out on the salt,the trays offer traction,directional stability and clean air for the drogue-chute to catch, so as to get the main chute out better 'cause the brakes burn out pretty fast at these speeds.
