A lot of subjects have been thoroughly covered here. Probably most subjects you can think of. You can find a lot of info using the search box.

LMAO... I used to do that (on a much smaller scale) with old cigarette packs.

That's an awesome experiment. I'm going to have to remember that and show it to my Son when he's older. *Saved*

Christ,

Here's the Big Bad Wolf of ring vortex generators:



FWIW, you can get a smoke/fog generator at a guitar/rock band/theatrical
supply house. Something about 350-500 watst will do; ~$40, plus "smoke"
liquid and cleaner fluid.

I have delta shaped VGs on my car, although they're actually more effective at reducing lift than drag. According to Mitsubishi's research, drag was reduced 4 points and rear lift by 13.

According to this article, vortex generators can reduce drag up to 12% and rear lift by up to 104% using a bluff body application.


Awesome video by the way.
