College Aero

Okay... So I know it's human powered... But still, aerodynamics Here's what the college kids came up with at the east coast HPV challenge... Well, here's some - I'm so busy this year (we're hosting the event).








Please, I can't speak for anyone but our own design (first photo). I can give some information from what I saw -- but nothing on why a design was chosen But I personally would appreciate to keep things positive -- a HUGE amount of man (and woman) hours has been invested

Oh, that red streamliner broke 40 today -- the humid/thick Florida air held them back methinks.

I'll post some frame photos later -- there's a really cool leaning trike and an awesome tadpole tandem

Cool. Any more video coming of your car (trike) in action? Or any of them?

#34 wins in my book. Doesn't look hokey like the others. I may be slightly biased.

I like how an oil company sponsored one of the vehicles.
