aerohead, do you have any papers that describe the Europaís aerodynamics? I know the car was done without a wind tunnel, which is impressive.
I searched the rat's nest and came up empty-handed.
I do have a vague recollection of an article describing how Colin Chapman would tie himself to the top of some Lotus, and while an employee drove the car at high speed, Chapman would crawl around like a spider on top of the thing, using his hands to 'feel' the airflow, and maybe hold a tuft wand.
It was a long time ago, and my little gray cells aren't very reliable anymore.
