Hi Dave,
I should have explained a little more.

The numbers I am looking for are the Coefficient of Drag
numbers for the vehicle.
Normally abbreviated to Cd.

I have copies of the total drag numbers and curves for the
car drawn by Malcolm Sayer when the development was underway
but so far no luck with the Cd numbers themselves.

Cheers , Pete.–

I believe its about 0.42. It’s in this book:

I’ve seen some university libraries have it.

Aah. Coefficient of Drag. Sorry Pete, I was racking my brains but
it wouldn’t pop out :slight_smile:

I had a car once that had a Cd of 1.2
The only time you could overtake was if the wind was behind
you…
