Spirit of EcoModder shape drag comparison

Had hoped to have had this pulled together long ago as well.
This list represents vehicles which share the same shape drag as Spirit,as of 2014,based upon the DARKO Technologies wind tunnel test results.
If given the same frontal area,they would be indistinguishable from one another,as far as the atmosphere is concerned.
