mods-data-Cd reduction ( hood/cowl )

Hello all. Just a quicky,as I found only one source for this data,and you'll find it in Hucho's. ( hood/cowl ): 1986,SAE Paper 860211, the reporter demonstrates that a maximum drag reduction of Cd 0.0475 occurs when the hood/cowl is angled up 15-degrees above the horizon.And from the previous installment,when the hoodline of the Subaru XT was dropped 10-mm,they achieved a 1.7% drag reduction.
