Buddy, we have done some baseline tests. Now we are working out what changes we want to try! You know, like which 3 or 4 out of the 5,321 that we all want to know about! That would be 15,321 with the golf ball dimples!  shocked
Here's a couple of samples - stay tuned!  cheers

Cool!

Now, I don't even pretend to understand aerodynamics, but I keep reading that the trailing edges are as important as the leading edges-or, as I believe Pork Pie(?) put it, "how you close the hole."

Based on that, wouldn't a design besides a squared off tail be better? I know Sparky mentioned using the piece from Sumner, so maybe this is a preliminary design?

Doug, your Salt Cat is totally different by the airflow concept.....

Woody used for the simulation the body shape which I had done as a concept for Sparky...

About a other rear end for the lakester....have no idea in the moment what Sparky got here in his mind...but he will tell me

The current rear end will "close the hole" very well.

Also  a idea which Sparky wrote, not too long ago, to give the rear end a little bit more ground clearance, will be a good idea....it will eliminate a airflow interference (hope this is the right translation of the German word)which I can see on the simulation picture, around the rear axle.

There is also a second front end concept with a integrated wing, which would change the airflow picture to the simulation from Woody.

The way how the front end will be at last, is a question, how (airflow) clean will be the front axle.....necessary for the concept is, that the wheels got covers on the out and inside to reduce the air resistance....the highest percentage on the drag at a lakester racer comes from the free turning wheels and the axle which sticks out of the body.

To use a more narrow axle on the rear means not in same time a lower drag....if the airflow can go clean between the rear wheels and the body shape the drag will maybe lower at last.....it all depends on the overall design concept....important is, that the airflow can run along the body shape with the lowest number of "interruption".

The concept I done for Sparky was created to the "possibility" of his workshop.......

Look at the #77 Hammond lakester , it has very clean lines and have added cannards to the front and are expermenting with different vertical stabilize designs. Both have helped with several runs well over 300 mph.

I noticed the cannards that showed up on Seths car. I would love to hear the thought behind this.

Thanks PP,
 the limiting factor is what I am willing to try to construct. I bought this tank 10 years ago from a salvage yard in Plainview Texas and when I decideted to put the Liner on hold and for sure build another lakester I was inspired by Al's "Betsy" and Mike's "AckAttack". 

PP has helped with his counsel and insights, several of the "features" are his---

Woody has run a preliminary CFD---and we have explored several tweaks and  we have decided on what to run CFD, the choices he and I have made--it is still in the works we have our fingers crossed, it looks like my decision to sell the old car and build a new one may bear FRUIT, IE a higher speed with the same Eng!!! We are trying to get some down force with out to big of a DRAG penalty---ah the LSR trade offs cheers

For canard wings low drag comes with an aggressive profile , reasonable taper , as long and slender as strength allows and not too close to the ground . I chose NACA , 63-021 , 2:1 taper , 7:1 span per side to average cord length and 2 ft up . I've been told that drag is much higher with 1 ft of ground clearance . Drag to down force can be pretty low .

When you study and compare the two nose shots you can see why Woody suggests a new nose and hence Summ's backyard contribution to the cause!!

I also guess that is why Ack's liner chose that nose it is fairly consistent and is probably not to "twitchy" to slight angle of attack variations!

Ordered my Christmas from Bob Stroud today---whew  I hope I feel a real good TUG when it deploys so that if reminds me of how necessary they are lol

WELL well well, I am no longer a Miller 250 Virgin, I have a unit that is about 12 years old---we had tried it when it got here and didn't like it ---it just welded differently that the 210 Iron Man Hobart I have had for about 10 years---finally I called my buddy JT--ie Jerry Foster in Dallas and he andsered some questions for me---low and behold--turned the wire speed range switch and was able to get it to settle down---When Joey was here Tuesday we played with some settings to get the Hottest settings we can control with .120 wall tubing---we are now begining to notiece the small nuance's are already liking this thing---the 210 now has .023 wire in it and we have .035 in the 250---life is good---it will get MUCH better when I get through with coping the diagonals and we can get the car off the weld jig and ROLL it a round on the floor to finish welding it!!! cheers
