? I don't see the connection to this thread.My first impression of car performance articles wasn't good. It was about the benefits of intercooling turbo engines. About 1/2 way through, the guy broke out the perfect gas law to prove why there was such a big difference in hp after adding an intercooler. With 4 significant figures. Only problem, he used °C instead of K.
On the other hand, and I've found a couple of Vizard books fairly good.
Russell, Bruce Hammer and Jeff LaVelle continue to demonstrate that the Glasair, a 30+ year old design and the first moulded composite kit in the USA, has excellent aerodynamics, contrary to popular opinion.Russell just finished another SARL event. "Today we ran in the BCAF Air Race. The 147 nautical mile course had four turns with the finish at the same place as the start. We beat our best speed ever buy just over 1 MPH. Our average speed was 252.95 MPH."
Not bad for 201 cubic inches.
