So adding the aero package gives you a .28 coefficent of drag, without it the COD is about .29 Does that .01 difference in the numbers really show? I can't imagine your top speed would be any higher, esp since we are already limited to below what the enginve can put out. Any input?

how much difference?-- so little you'd never notice. (unless you're doing maybe 160 mph.- )

It's all cosmetic. IMHO.

I'm gonna guess the 0.28 Cd will give an extra 0.1MPG

The .28 would prob hurt me. Knowing me I would try to hit 160 mph every chance I got, to see if I can go any faster!


I figured it was all for looks, but just wanted to see if there was any noticeable difference. Thanks

i bet 99.9% ppl won't feel a difference

but say if a car like the Chrysler 300C with 0.35cd, then it would be a huge difference

It might just be my imagination, but I've noticed that in my previous car, the Mugen kit I had on my Honda gave it more stability at speeds over 100mph. Before the kit, it felt like my car was going to lift and lose control. With the kit on, it seemed like my car had alot more dowforce. It probably also helped decrease the turbulance under the car that causes lift. Again, this was many years ago, and I might have just imagined it.
