I imagine that you’d momentarily lose the benefit of the ribs as you steer the car... what I’m curious about, however, is whether or not it’s important that the wheel gap be that tight... it looks almost as if the ribs are touching the tire... it wouldn’t be terribly hard to implement something like it on some of our old beaters though... (though for only .003 reduction in drag I’m not sure if it would be worth the effort)
