Highpoints of that test was MSA altered their air dam based on the testing completed.

 

I didn't know that.  What did they change?

 

 

 

I'm not complaining by a LONGSHOT---the data gleaned only whetted my appetite to be sure!

 

Oh yeah, I'd love to go back if we ever work it out.  If you've got a bit of garage engineer/tinkerer in you, it's like crack.

Jimbo, I appreciate your kind words and hope most agree that I try and be as open as I can with anything concerning the car build. I'm in on the wind tunnel and don't mind sharing what we

We shall see how I get on, but perhaps my oversized radiator and the generally cooler weather here will help me with that.
