the guides like those of the supercars in photos, can be valid alternative?
Sorry, I don't know. I am not totally clear what the purpose of the guides is. Maybe they are important at 200 mph but not at 60 mph.

well the car at the top is an audi A2 wich has a cd of only 0.25!
it does looks the best from the 3 pictures bur of course it's not really clear what is visualised exactly.

looks like they just hit a huge bubble gum.
but it does make you wonder what the wake looks like on a less aerodybamic vehicle

Well, it also shows what I had in mind for turning the front of the side skirts in to just inside of the front tire so air coming off of it would be directed to outside the vehicle.
My huge wheel wells would act like parachutes!

looking at the pictures above the most turbulence seems to come from the top and the front of the wheel, wich is not where i'd expect it, i've seen RV's and buses where the top of the wheel wells are angeled to that the're tighter at the front than at the back. i'm not sure what it's supposed to do, but both where hight drag vehicles wich where not reall designed to win a beautycontest either. it didn't look like it was there just for stying so perhaps thiscould reduce drag, or in other words, fitting a partial fairing to replicate this might also work?

fabrio, would you provide a link to the site where you found the images showing vehicle vorticity. Those are the most drastic depictions I have seen. I would like to read more. Thanks, CO ZX2
