Looking forward to your results as you test the various aspects of automotive aerodynamics.

I am not sure the Insight 'expands the scale of resolution' - the lower the CD, the harder it is to make improvements (but I suppose easier to see if you're increasing drag?).

I won't be running full wheel covers. I think the Insight wheels are already very good, and I want to retain brake cooling openings.
