I'm testing out an AP22 this lunch time, does anyone know the co-efficient drag of a 9k Aero as I need this to calibrate the computer. :D
Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease!!! :cheesy:

Sorry, but you should be looking for the CdA of the car not purely the Cd. This figure is the Co-efficient of Drag multiplied by the frontal area in square metres. According to Race-Tech it lies within the bounds of 0.7 for a modern saloon to 1.3 for a Caterfield type car.

I have never found the CdA quoted for a 9000 let alone the Aero, but would love to know the answer for sure.

My estimate worked from the Race-Tech method was 0.87 for an Aero on Abbott springs (lowering might affect the exact reading).
