Hahaha! Any trouble with Robert Thomas getting hot headed from that muffler attached to his forehead?

And thanks. It looks like lowering your ride made it quite a lot easier to get around suspension elements.

My testing is delayed again today... too much wind on the course (8-10mph), so I might move on to designing adjustable-angle rear diffuser prototype. The aero study I am using suggested the box cavity interacts heavily with under car flow, so diffuser is important anyway.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
