His mods are legit, not pretty, but unlike ricers his actually serve a purpose. That boat tail mitigates turbulence.that boat tail acts as a wheely bar for all the up draft coming under the car and the extra downdraft on the top along with the weight, it keeps it planted so he can go 90 mph and start flying...... I didn't think you could beat a ricer modding cars until I seen this.
Yep. The tail is probably the most important part of that...ahem...design, especially on a hatch. The drag created by the sudden drop off on hatches and similarly on trailers provides severe drag penalties. The more the car resembles a teardrop shape the lower the drag COF.His mods are legit, not pretty, but unlike ricers his actually serve a purpose. That boat tail mitigates turbulence.
with all due respect, and remember, i said "with all due respect"I'm very tempted to get on there and rip the guy to shreds.
Umm, the ugly 90mpg honda would pull...You'd think if he spent two years on that he would at least paint it to match....that is the most god-awful thing I've ever seen, regardless of the benefit, which I'm sure is minimal.

Many of the mods on my car are the same as the ones they use on the Bonneville Salt Flat unlimited speed cars to increase their maximum speeds. And the max speed of my car is considerably higher than it used to be (about 40mph higher) and the performance in the quasi-legal 70-90mph speed range is much improved over stock dispite no changes made to the engine.
