    Internal Body Aerodynamics

    If this is what they had first, it looks inefficient. Thick wing cross-section, not much camber, not much space between suction surface and trunk, and exaggerated wicker bill. Low mount means dirtier air.

    Yes, sales pitch. He said Steeda quite often. But, as expected the high mount is better. Also, concedes APR has better aerodynamic properties.

    Some interesting metal working tools

    I keep seeing carbon fiber wings for sale with photos like this one below.Do you think they would have been happier with how it worked if they didn’t mount it backwards. Might get a good deal on one of these.

    Plastic Fantastic 2

    I’m asking, don’t guys run multi panel mirrors? Or, are they banned? I’ve never used them, so have no opinion.On a lot of my old muscle cars over the years a spring loaded punch would usually fix a floppy mirror. Pretty sure I’ve done it to several Corvettes.
