You've said frequently that you've not read any aero textbooks more recent than 1987.

You've ignored all the corrections and references that I, Vman455 and AeroMcAeroFace have been giving you.
* Dr Wolf described exactly what I was saying about the 911, and what the spoiler did to the ' adverse pressure gradient '
* With respect to 'more recent' aero textbooks, so far there's no indication that they possess any information which would overturn fluid mechanics as I know them. They nibble around the edges, but no 'grand gestures,' no 'opus magnus.' I routinely see more contemporary fluid mechanics textbooks that aren't worth bringing home.
* Some of your SAE reference materials speak of contradictory and opposing evidence within their own investigations. Like rotating wheel drag.
* You've yet to correct me. I can't get a word out of any of you. For about 9-months now for you personally.
* I really would like to know what you guys actually think. You just avoid direct communication like the plague.
