Yep,the Cybertruck chamfer would do it.It's just a vertical edge to burst the flow,once the relative wind exceeds 10-degrees crosswind. Hucho reported that designers consider this condition such a short-term transient event,that the overall drag of the vehicle isn't really compromised by the mutilation.

Post 3195 by myself quoting a scale model site...........regarding to the Pillbug.


And Aerohead again suggested a tail fin would have probably resolved the issue.

Now I have to remember the drag vortex quotation source. Something like relieving these forces, other forces become more apparent.

On my own vehicles, aero improvements increased stability, most notably in crosswinds.
