Testing methodology looks fine - coast downs only at high speed (90 - 70 mph) - and ride height and spring forces measured for lift/downforce.
That use of the template would violate the ground reflection, mirror image, and fineness ratio, blowing the Cd all to hell.
There's only one way to use the template.
