Hi, and welcome.

I see you now have stats under your username. I think MetroMPG may have helped you out, I think he's the site owner/mod.

I know the aero on an Astro isn't great, but there's plenty of room for improvement. You could add a bellypan underneath, skirt those rear wheels, add an airdam up front, etc.

Go look at Aerohead's assorted posts, the guy is an aerodynamics whiz. And for inspiration, read up on Basjoos, who takes aerodynamic optimization to its ludicrous ideal...ludicrous, but profitable.

Subbed, if I can figure out which button to push.

Lead or follow. Either is fine.
