perhaps it would be interesting to use the same setup to test vortex generators behind an open front wheel well.... front wheel skirts are not really an option for everyone,

but perhaps some vortex geneators just aft of the wheel could improve the situation over stock.
some people claim they should be placed in front of a wheelwell so that might be tested as well.

the full wheelwell cover will likely be superior, but it would be interesing to see where vortex generators are positioned betwee these two extremes
