Hello!

Hi, i am most interested in aerodynamics as I have a lightweight fibreglass kit car.

Slightly less about the eco side but still wanting to get a better shape of car!

Ok, its an onyx firecat- a kit car with an uno turbo engine.. so off boost at lower speeds its pretty efficient... then you can always surprise yourself and put your foot down!

I just started a post in the aerodynamics section with loads of crazy thoughts.. numbered to spare the confusion.

Yes, that's mine. I managed to find one with a hard top- sadly the hard top doesn't fit on that one shown, so I am going ot get an MOT on it and sell it. They could make super eco cars with a few mods due to being so light.
