Not surprising, but I'm not seeing any difference between the skirted rear with and without discs, though I think there is clear improvement between skirted and full discs.

Going to see if I can get some actual numbers in the next day. It was in the 90's today, so no chance of getting anything but full battery cooling going on until the wee hours or morning.
This was the "after" dust-up... was there a before that you posted? Put 'em side-by-side.

I created a graphic for this but PhotoBucket won't let me use my 770-images anymore unless I pay them extortion money.
Photobucket... for shame, low scalpers!!
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
