I have done almost all of my long travels going to visit my parents.
The route must be in an area where there is a depression in the land, because the wind always blows from the side of the car ( looking at the motion of trees and flags )
I had installed some low slung side skirts much like BasJoos has on his Civic, but began to wonder if I was actually increasing my drag due to the huge amount of frontal area I was adding to the side of the car.
Id love it if I could get some advice on this.
