Yeah, that picture is wrong. I drew it horizontal, but now I think I should have drawn it with a 10 degree down slope to get closer to the tear-drop kamm-back shape.

I've had three Fieros.. by "had", I mean I paid for them, each time, and ended up losing the car before taking delivery on it. (one was stolen when I bought it, never checked the VIN until the DMV got the VIN when I filed the lost title, second one was stolen AFTER i paid for it, day I was supposed to take delivery on it, so no insurance on it, and third was never delivered, week later, can't get ahold of the dealer that took my money.. state disbursement paid it back to me and went after the dealer, no idea what happened from there.) sour taste is an understatement. All in all, over 12k invested, 6k returned, and nothing to show for it. I'm doing good!

I hope your luck is better than mine with these cars thus far.

Hello from RACE at Pennock's. I am thinking about adding Air Tabs to the top of my car to see if I can get better flow off of the roof. They have worked fairly well on a Porsche 914 so I plan to give it a try in the spring when my car comes out of hiding for the winter. I won't drive it enough until then to find out if it makes any difference.

You might want to throw away the Scangauge and get a G-Tech. The data would be a lot more fun to collect.

heh.. the way I'd be collecting data would probably have more to do with a police report, buddy.

Not that I would ever damage your Fiero... but damn, drifting is fun. (I'm also reasonably sure that the reason it went mainstream was a conspiracy by the tire mfg's to sell more tires.)
