I can assure you I am not Julian, I think it is the middle of the night in australia as I post, both now and before. I am in the UK, hence the name based on BoatyMcBoatface.

I did enjoy his posts here though, it made the aerodynamics section a bit more active, it was only the "Interesting Aerodynamic Cars (Mike Vetter's ETV, also Avion)" thread was updated most of the time. Maybe not enough people were doing builds.

Edit: not enough people are posting builds on the aerodynamic thread

A lot of the build threads are posted in Ecomodder central. I usually just go to recent posts at the top of the page though.

It was a reasonable theory. The First Post was thoughtful.

If you need an avatar, I don't know if this is in the public domain but there must be some similar:

I couldn't find one that would scale, so a bit of work in microsoft paint and I now have an avatar, but that is off the topic.

I can't work out whether the point of the vent is to reduce the area of low pressure that stagnates and thus create two stagnation points but of lower total drag, or whether it is to reduce the separation/promote flow attachment on the hood. In one thread here there was something about the prius with the bulge to encourage separation wasn't there?
