It is amazing what a slight change to a certian area will get you aerodynamically.

Hey Brett,thanks for the kind words,for sharing your library with me,and am glad reduced frontal area worked out.P.S.,I looked at my big-rig stuff,and certain numbers looks real doable.Renault hit Below Cd0.35 with an 18-wheeler and there are bus designs with Cds below 0.25. At 56-mph,some of the rigs return over 10-mpg.Tasty! We'll all be waiting to hear more about the cap.Best to ya,Phil.
