Fun to play with different car shapes and sizes to see the instant affect on CDA. Also can put a window down, have a flat floor etc. Lets you see the best bang for buck on mods and quantify them.

When added to the ecomodder tool it gave me a fairly accurate figure for myself and the donkey over the recent run.

Now if I could just find an online CFD program.
They've plagiarized 'A Method of Estimating Drag Coefficients,' by,R.G.S.White's research paper from MIRA,1969.
Shame on them!
