    Thanks Barry.
    I had trouble copying a link once downloaded.

    Chris.
    I'll go thru it this evening.
    Basically confirmed nose down attitude but rear diffuser not a benefit on a square back unless some camm effect can be created to balance.
    Smoothing underneath should still be worthwhile as the very messy chassis members are playing havoc with linear flow.
    Keeping air attached at sides and top worthwhile and a couple of things to note there.

    Do twin water tanks comprise a smoother underflow? They sit below the cross members & make it look smooth for air flow from the front.
    Cheers

    I have noticed if you mount a red “P” plate to a vehicle............it seems to go faster. :confused:

    Mount any colour plate on and they seem to go faster.

    Good to see they maintain the level in Qld also ....... but then they did have a flexibility/allowance if exceeding the speed limit on their driving tests :eek:o_O
