aerodynamics





4/6/2010
At the time, it seemed like a clear car was a good idea.
10/1/2009
In the continuing pursuit of better aerodynamics, Jack takes a closer look at the design of MAX’s nose.
11/11/2009
Jack explores how to test how body changes affect aerodynamics, and looks for inspiration from Wonder Woman.
4/29/2010
MAX's classic race car skin remains a work in progress. Jack wants MAX to look Lola-esque, but not too Lola-esque.
4/29/2009
Thoughts on the potentially fuzzy math of mpg calculations.
5/23/2010
MAX's bodywork continues, as Jack modifies the race car nose to fit over the Kubota engine.
6/4/2010
More progress on MAX's streamlined body, using a laser to make curved body parts fit on a flat frame.
11/5/2008
It's the age-old tug of war between good looks and streamlined, aerodynamic design. 
5/4/2011
Using MAX to test a tubing streamlining material, resulted in a significant reduction in drag.
11/17/2010
We're looking at a handful of low cost improvements, and since MAX is undergoing repairs at the moment, this is a good time to make them.

In the pursuit of 100 mpg, cardboard is a nice medium for conceptualizing design features, but it has its limitations.
5/15/2010
We're modifying the Lola race car's nose to fit MAX's chassis. The first step is cutting the nose down the middle so we can move the fenders apart a few more inches, which will let us steer enough for parking and other normal street activities.
8/18/2010
Renowned inventor Craig Vetter discusses his history with aerodynamics and motorcycles, and his vision for doing more with less energy.
9/23/2011
MAX gets a lightweight belly pan under the engine, to further reduce aerodynamic drag.
