So if this little cigar was scaled up to the size of a traditional car ( with a height of 50" to the roof ) how much would the Cd increase ?
Obviously ( duh ! ) the CdXA would increase, but what about just the Cd.

Also, if i remember correctly, the top speed of the car is something like 15 mph.
How would the drag change if driven at traditional speeds ( both at this scale, and when brought up to traditional size )

Aerohead, you got yer ears on there good buddy ?
