As I said, pick the trucks that have flaps all the way down. Hardly any rubbish kicks up from under them. And they give a better draft at distance. If you are lucky enough to find one that is not swarmed by truck drafting corvette's, of course

Seriously, I draft most of the time. Up to now I have had about 5 sizeable stone hits on the front window, one left a dent that made repair necessary, but NONE of it happened while drafting...
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
"In hindsight, I should have placed a bet on the horse that won the race"
"In hindsight, I should have bet more on that horse"
