Thanks. There's likely a function to automatically resize giant ones, even if they're hosted offsite (by dynamically setting width="" in the html). I'll have a look and see, as I'm sure this will come up often.


That air dam is GIANT! I'll be very interested to see how it compares on your "calibrated" hills. I'll also be very surprised to hear that you didn't scrape it .

Sounds like you're going to be using the same methods Coyote X did to determine which bumper style was best for his car - comparing terminal coasting velocities on an often used descent.

I'm envious - "testing season" has been finished here for over a month due to the weather.
