^^^^ good articles. i have a whole bunch of those articles from that mag. on everything from airdams/splitters to skirts, wings, and diffuser.

alot from what i read in those articles went into making my homegrown aero. despite it's simple and archaic appearance.

Yeah, I have the full .zip collection of them saved on my computer with all of the aero articles... As been stated prior, the air dam with the diffuser on the bottom is the best setup in this case. Good luck with your project!

This nails it right on the head. I explained this in a recent thread less than a day ago asking about vortex generators. Do "B" and give feedback. Also I guess one bigger single canard on each side would prove better since drag wouldn't be an issue on this car. Should work better.
