I really like that front fender. Brake cooling duct at the B-pillar?

I DDG'd 'Thyssen-Krupp' and this showed up:

Thyssen and Krupp were two of Germany's largest steelmakers, and Krupp was also cannon-maker to Germany, and others.

Did you mean Drag-Kapult?



I wanted to give it a satin green finish and a logo, but I'm still learning Krita v3.3.3. I did figure out the clone brush.

So, does this car get better, or worse, gas mileage than the Tracker it was based on?

My estimate is much worse, all that stuff hanging out in the slipstream causing drag

Dump the prop spinner and those rear fenders and it might reach parity. Directional stability should be good, but the front seat is where the back seat used to be — weight distribution may be odd.

Wouldn't a cross wind spin it like a weather vane?

Cirrus are not noted to be "Rudder" airplanes so probably just a serious yaw in a crosswind. The reviews I saw indicated a huge right brake need during the take off roll.

Center of Pressure vs Center of Gravity.

The weight of the drivetrain is forward, but the passengers are moved to the rear and that tail is on a long lever arm. You'd need to know the weight on each axle.

Wind speed is usually 1/10th of vehicle speed and seldom at a right angle.

I was going for 'kaput!', as in 'drag breaker'.
