Ford Escort ZX2 Aerodynamics

I'm starting a new thread here that will handle the aerodynamic aspects of my car exclusively

Here is some data on my car:

Stock Cd - 0.33, Ford ZX2 Automatic (2000)

Frontal area - 20.8 square feet, Ford ZX2 Automatic (2000)

Stock CdA - 6.9 square feet, Ford ZX2 Automatic (2000)

Stock Aerodynamic Resistance @ 62 m.p.h. - 15.8 kW/21.3 HPR, Ford ZX2 Automatic (2000)

Pretty good numbers for a 1998 car, but not good enough for us!


Remember, thank a fellow EM'er for a helpful post!!!
