Always wondered what the advantage was to these things.   :headscratch: Now I know.  :yesnod:

Ahhhhhhhhh very nice. Before I clicked the link I looked long and hard and I guessed two things: Less turbulence beneath the wing and increased side profile to help reduce skid. :thumbs: That analysis is really cool! Interesting that it was Acura who came up with this idea :yesnod: I have the software to do this, but I haven't spent the time to learn it yet :ack: I still have your little matchbox/hotwheels cars Bryan :circle: They are sitting here right next to this 23" monitor :thumbs:
