1 Answer:
  • Akash Ahmed
    Drag, lift and downforce from over body flow. The body shape creates lift and downforce from the air flow. ... As the higher pressure air in front of the wind screen travels over the windscreen, it accelerates, causing the pressure to drop. This lower pressure literally lifts on the car's roof as the air passes over it.
  • Do lowering springs increase mpg?

    Lowered vehicles are more aerodynamic. There's less air hitting the wheels and tires (that are not streamlined shapes). This makes these cars faster. Some owners of low-stance vehicles also notice improved gas mileage.
  • Are SUVs less aerodynamic?

    A small SUV has better aerodynamics, mainly because it's smaller, with less frontal area.

  • What is the best shape for aerodynamics?

    The most aerodynamically-efficient shape for a vehicle is, in theory, a teardrop. A smooth shape minimises drag and the profile, if correctly configured, keeps airflow attached to the surface rather than breaking free and causing turbulence.30 mar 2021
  • What car broke the land speed record?

    Thrust SSC
    Thrust SSC holds the world land speed record, set on 15 October 1997, and driven by Andy Green, when it achieved a speed of 1,228 km/h (763 mph) and became the first land vehicle to officially break the sound barrier.
