None of those drag coefficients are correct. They're all based upon sub-critical Reynolds number.
I'm all for an unrestricted internet, but there is a place for peer-review.
Do NOT use these values for engineering purposes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aerohead, when I saw my profile associated with that, I thought I had been hacked. It is from 7 years ago! And i think you maybe forgot you already responded to it in this thread exactly like this, back in 2013? Here: https://ecomodder.com/forum/showthre...tml#post365364

No problem. Thx.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
