Re: Another Idea For A Bed Treatment
I see the theory, but those animations aren't exactly accurate. An open bed is fairly aerodynamic because of the bubble. The animations are 2D, and dont take into effect the bed space. Notice how the air stops at the top of the bed. I agree how these could help MPGs, but the first video is not representative of actual drag.
Not that I know all the ins and outs of aerodynamics but video 1 doesn't include the bed space because, as he said, it has a tonneau cover on it. There would be no bed space.
