Coefficent of Drag

Starting to look for the next FE project. Does anyone have a link or easy way to find the CdA of a car or a link that list the top 20 or so?

Yup, there's a lot of discrepancies, different tunnels give different results for the same car, different approximations of reference area, etc... Although they are pretty accurate when comparing cars for better or worse.

you can edit the entries.

06 civic sedans go to two categories.
hybrid: .27
non-hybrid: .31

maybe the coupe has the .29 cd??
