Did this video help you?

g0ferboy: Can you do a TVR Sagaris video?

Hamdan Alharbi: do a FB rx7. it looks like a rocket! will it have a lower coefficient of drag?

JD Martin: I have a wingless FD and I'd like to see how a '99 spec adjustable rear wing changes the flow characteristics.

Liam McAndrew: please please please do the rx7 FB! love your great work :)

Guss De Blöd: Another great video, thanks!

You said that the FC has a better Cx than the FD, but the FD looks like it should have a better CX, looks smoother, even the flow of air (ok hydrogen in this case) looks more fluid, to move more freely, so what is causing it to be less efficient than the FC ?

Kenneth Ho: Hello, you always mention about flow separation on the rear window in many of your videos. Would you be doing a video on vortex generations on the back of the roof? Would those things help with the flow separation?

Chris Juarez: Thanks for the small insight. If you need the hard numbers let me know. I've got a ton of literature on the FD.
I was always pleased with the OEM rear spoiler. A lot of people have upgraded to the 99 spec spoiler. But as you mentioned, unless you're going all out on the track, having a better shape aero wise for street driving is the better compromise.
I would love to see a NC Miata PRHT airflow.
Keep them coming

Rui Gonçalves: Do a video on a classic VW beetle, the rear of the car is supposedly designed to increase airflow to the engine fan (Air cooled).

R Theory Motorsports LTD: So when will you be doing a hard top Miata? :) Post up that article, I'd love to read it!
