2008 Mitsubishi Aerodynamic Paper of Lancer X

The "Vortex Generator" post got me snooping around Mitsubishis tech papers for more pearls of wisdom from the usual suspects over there and I found this.

Some kinda cool stuff in here. I in particular like the vortex generation behind the C-pillar.


I did a site search and didn’t find this referred to, so I thought I'd put it in here.

Note to Moderators: (I'll edit this out once I get a good answer)
Is there a reason why this paper isn't listed as part of a "Knowledge Dump" type sticky? Shouldn't there be something right on top with this paper and others like it for easy reference? Just wondering.

ChazInMT -

Thanks. I hadn't seen that one. I thought you were referring to the 2004 Evo paper on vortex generators :

Research on Aerodynamic Drag Reduction by Vortex Generators

Both papers have Naoki Hamamoto in their author list. Maybe he's their main aero-dude. Gotta find an Evo to stare at.
