  (A) if a car is running flat out such as NHRA Comp Eliminator, Pro Mod, IHRA or NHRA Top Alcohol, many of the circle & drag boat racing classes, etc., and land or water high speed events, many competitors run their combination at the edge of the tuning window. In that case, adjustment of the fuel system for different air densities is a necessity. Reduction of forebody drag (decrease of overpressure on the front) 2 Conclusions: a) The most significant drag reduction can be achieved by rounding up the vertical and upper horizontal leading edges on the front face. b) Relatively small amendments can result considerable drag reduction. c) The drag reduction of front spoiler is large if its.
