You should tuft test that rear glass . . . .after you wash it really good!

The airflow would have to look pretty interesting back there considering the amount of accumulation it's getting

My first thought was some show that I watched as a kid where students mocked a guy that rode his bike to school and his pants had a racing stripe on the back.

I thought there was a term for that.

What is the solution?

Xist's patented skidmark retarder!

[patent pending]

You probably want to make it wider and use Aerohead's terminology.

You know, once you have a roof and a floor, you have half of a box cavity!

Isn't a box cavity 80% of a boat tail? :P

Thanks for the idea, now if I can get that CFEO approval on HER golf...... also tuft the body below the window, too.

I would bet I have a big swirl spinning such that the exhaust is following the body at slow velocity.
