Default DIY wind tunnel and track aero tester. Built with household supplies!

In case you guys haven't been over on my thread in the track section found here:
https://www.miataturbo.net/showthrea...123#post646123

My buddy and I decided to build a little home made wind tunnel to see if the front canards we fabricated would even work. Below is a little video of us testing out a few things, including my brake duct setup and vented hood!

Enjoy

I was looking for the link to the commercial I just recently saw. Forget which car maker it was for... but had a kid who stole his sister's hairdryer and used some incense to make the same thing for his push cart. Great stuff!

No need to lie, we all know its so all the little kids that come trick or treating to your house cant see who took them and raped them in your bathroom late at night, making them cry sweaty, salty tears. That little child was once you, and that man who took you as a child into the smoke filled bathroom , ripped off your pants and bent you over the sink right before penetrating you every so softly, was your father. We still love you though.

Doh... I should have certainly remembered that for pedigree reasons! Thanks Hustler, that word is used daily in the household now.

That's not my quote, that's from the last day I drove my green car NA, the same day a Prius pulled on me in traffic. At 86mph I managed to rough-up a 997 owner and he approached me to say, "[Your Miata looks fast and you're driving the hell out of it], I'm impressed by your laps, even with a lack of racing pedigree in that car."
