Video: someone DIY tuft testing a Volvo
This was a random find...


Visualizing the flow of air around the hood of the car - lower speeds. Volvo, 25-35 mph.
You can see the turbulence at the leading edge of the hood. I guess there's a reason they're called bricks.

Anybody recognize the model? I'm pretty sure it's not the 240 style.

Anyway, I sent a message via YT to the poster of the video, inviting him to stop by here. I hope he does. It would be interesting to learn what he's up to, and I suspect he'd fit right in.

If I was a betting man, I'd say it's a Volvo 740. Very cool video! I might steal that idea.

Nice avatar, Peakster. :)

Thanks. I spent some time making it, so I thought I should show it off for a while :o.

Brick indeed :p

My hood didn't do anything like that :p At least, if it was happening, it was too far down the hood for me to see from within the cab...
