         Hi Tech,

 

              As an electric I'll use the best windtunnel, the atmsphere ;^P   On EV's one only needs to look at power used at various speeds to compute CD.

              I've done aero/hydro for 35 yrs everything from high speed sailboats like a 32' one that go 25mph under sail or power, produced wind and tidal generators that many said couldn't be done yet I did.  

             Yet no comment on how E-2 gamed their WT/aero  test? No comment on their crash test gaming?

              Your other links show what kind of person you are.  Sad.

It is an interesting photo and article.  The back end looks like it was cut off or missing. Can't wait to read about the next rev of this car.

What I don't understand is why all of the engines FAILED and didn't even make it to validation. All of the numbers mean nothing if you don't validate the data, Edison2 never completed the testing that was required, they continue to evade the truth and lie to the consumers.
