Snow Aerodynamics? = PERFECT Aerodynamics?

DO you think this tahoe would benefit from one


it's pretty clear the Snow created its own Aerodynamics

THIS SNOW perfectly built Aerodynamics allowed the snow to smoothly flow over the hood and windscreen while at 35-38mph



did not even have to use the wipers(some very heavy wet flakes did hit it though) it even plugged up the radiator

When the wind is from the right direction you can get a similar effect on a stationary car:

Apologies for the image being upside down but I could not get it the right way up. I even tried to edit the picture to put it upside down before I uploaded it thinking it would then get inverted again to be the right way up but that didn't work. So please either stand on your head or turn your display upside down.

Nice grille block. :thumbup:

Self-correcting as the weather changes.

Snerodynamics: Not a reliable indicator of what's optimal.

I think they can be pretty good sometimes.

It would be interesting to test snerodynamics in a wind tunnel.

I think sand has been used before, see link below with my quote.
