Pretty ignorant statement from the comments how the "extra weight" negates the aero benefit. But some people are proud of their ignorance.

I got a chance to look at the web site and was impressed at how many ideas I had implemented.

What was kind of weird was that I had a dream on Wednesday night that I was lifting my car up with the front end loader on my tractor. There were two videos showing that very idea.

Also saw that NY mayor bloomberg has his limos set up with window air conditioners to pre cool his cars. He should sweat like the rest of us peons!
