Brick walls actually glide a lot better than you'd think... the problem is it takes a lot of fuel to regain the speed after you've lost it.

Barn doors glide poorly, but you use less fuel on the pulse.

With the comments about vehicles being "underpowered", I have to ask if you are trolling. If you aren't, I'd ask if you consider a semi-trailer to be "underpowered", and your reasoning behind that.
