onefstek can you please tell me the name of that software?
I already see some people using it but i never catch the name.
What's your time on 1/4 mile?
There's no all motor in my country, all motor must be very competitive, so you need to look for details, one tinny detail, close all gaps in your front even the smallest ones, leave only the ones you really need, use duct tape to close them, check under the car, , close all gaps then too and make it smooth, cut your rear bumper to be far from the ground so the air flows faster(some people drill some big holes on rear bumper).
I used to do that on street racing cars, it actually works a lot at high speeds, i dont know how fast is your car, but if it's fast, you should look at those details, because, faster car, bigger drag.

I have to keep the doors on and windows closed at all times. Drag race NHRA rules are also in effect for our class besides the event rules.

I been busy removing all four coats of paint from the engine bay the last few days. As soon as that gets done, ill get back to some aero mods.

Im working on a scoop for my ITB's that will not have a bunch of drag.

Are you referring to the bumper being cut all the way up?

Yes.
I tried this on a turbocharged honda crx(b18 + big turbo) and a slightly more discret version on my dailly golf mk4 tdi, this mod with a lower front and all gaps closed you higher top speed or get there, i also smooth all the under car side and use lightweight magnesium wheels with a very "closed" design for better aerodynamics, i noticed all this mods on my dailly car, i get better fuel economy and the car is faster.
Sorry if i can't make me understand well, i'm not english fluent, sometimes i have some difficulties to express myself
I reccommend you to check photos of well builth cars, big winners and big thinkers spend a lot of time looking at details that no one looks, thats why not everybody can be a winner at drag strip, you can use the fuel saver design technology in a drag strip, because fuel savers, save a lot of power, allways remeber that.




This is a car builth for high speed records, take a look at the duct tape, all gaps are carefully taped.
