Question is, does it cover "new" ground or mearly "...add more decimal places..." to already known "old" information?

That's the $130 question until someone snags a copy and digests it.
My next book is $394 and it's going to take awhile to budget for that one.
Perhaps we'll get a volunteer who can't quite spring for a $200 Hucho',but can absorb the $130.

Home - Concepts of Aerodynamics

"Aside from offering a solid understanding of ground vehicle aerodynamics, the book also offers more thorough study of several key topics. One such topic is car-truck interaction, when one vehicle (usually the smaller one) is overtaking the other. There is a direct and instant benefit in terms of safety on the highway from understanding the forces at play when one vehicle passes the other in the same direction and sense."
I only made it through half of his sample lecture, it being so simple-minded it was making my head hurt. So I looked at the page source—that's a lot of code [created in Joobla] for a header, 2-picture slide show and a couple of paragraphs.

I'll pass.
