Computational Fluid Dynamics software ?

With all of the aero testing going on here, does anyone here use a CFD program ?

I do 3D modelling as a hobby and I am building my car as a polygon model that I hope to be able to use in a CFD program someday.

One problem : To use CFD programs, you must be smart.... and that leaves me out.

I can build the 3D car, but I'm clueless with the mathematics.

I'm working learning I'll be working on an HPV fairing this semester - and will probably use Cosmos/FloWorks (because it's available for free at my school) to do CFD.

Currently, I'm in a CAD/CAM class - we're using I-Deas for modeling and FEM analysis. For the class, we're modeling a goofy telescoping hand truck (that's the midterm project) and then we'll be doing FEM for our final project. I don't think we can do CFD through I-deas.
Time is the best teacher. Unfortunately it kills all its students.
