I feel the Center of Pressure is close to where I show it above.  

Cut the car out of the picture, transferred it to cardboard, cut the cardboard out, then balanced the image (like a see-saw) and it balanced on that point.  Probably close.

Also since the car is flatter at the back than the front the point is probably even further back as the method I used doesn't take that into consideration.  It gave equal aero weight (not sure of the proper term) to the cars shape as viewed from the side.  A flat surface, as viewed from the side, would move the CP in that direction verses a rounded surface for the same surface area.

To work on that you could whittle out a small model to scale and put a pin through it vertically and move the pin to the point where the model didn't weather-vane around when you put air on it,

www.leadmineproducts.com     C-Clip eliminator axles

These guys are where I ordered my "builder axle" shafts from  they have 2 lengths of axles you can chose from  makes building a GM axle with 28 splines real easy---you just cut to length  I ordered two of the long ones and will have to cut about 1 1/8" off the short side ---very reasonable and easy to work with..

Cut the old mounting brackets out and have the nearly completed wider stance 62" from flange to flange  as wide as I could make it.  had to modify the Camaro torque arm brackets to get it in with out cutting up my 4x4 tubes full of lead---if I have as good a shop day Fri. as I did this afternoon we may soon have a roller again  :-D

did not have a good day in the shop yesterday---my mentally challenged self was in control ----could not get brackets to agree with what I think I need---woke up at 4 this morning grabbed the paper made some coffee---bam-- the brackets jumped to the surface of my muddled mind.  PAPER DOLL time---in my skivvies and flip flops head out to the shop 1.5 hours later I have patterns that I think will work and give me the clearance I will need later with the Turbos.  By then I was awake enough to have the sense not to try to cut them out-- time for breakfast.

Jon,  I attributed it to the solar flares, the full moon and the 13th   just a star crossed day but we did have a great b'day party at Organ Pizza in Mesa.
