Tuft Testing 2nd Gen Honda CRX Rear Glass



Yep, lots of fun.

So, to me, looks like attached flow, correct? I should be happy, eh?

PS: Is there a way to edit the url to affect how it embeds? I tried looking at the script that autoembeds youtube clips here and there's no option for it. I maybe get under the hood and edit it myself if there's not an update available.

Yay it attached. Nice job. Mini boat tail time now!

This also reminds me I have to do this to my car too.

Yes, I solved my own problem. Now all our embedded videos will be bigger and more pleasant for the watching.

Yes, it looks very good.

Could you measure the angle of the glass relative to level?

I'll do that later and report it too. Your rear glass angle looks to be half of what my NHW11 has.

I'll snap a profile picture and take some measurements in a bit, trying to figure out how to point my rear view camera right now.

Notice the ones at the edges/sides are twirling a little, like there is turbulent air from the rear 1/4 glass tumbling where it transfers to the top of th hatch.
Overall the CRX and Insight are the best shapes out there if your going to start with a production chassis IMO.

Yes, there was clearly air coming over from the quarter panel air, it didn't seem like that much but I should try taking it out at 65 or so and see.
