Usually the people making claims like that have never even seen a drag strip.

I remember one year at the Turkey Rod Run (very large car show at the Daytona International Speedway) a guy was trying to sell me his new wax product and he swore that once the car is waxed with this stuff the guys drag racing were going .2 faster ! What an idiot. ugh

Well if that wax was that hard to use I wouldn't want it anyway....I mean it would have to make you lose 200lbs from all the work applying and removing it!!!!!!! eek!

Now I do believe that a clean waxed car does run faster than the same car dirty and unwaxed but not .2 :rolleyes:

The covers won't do crap!!!

The biggest effect on areodynamics is frontal area, and it is increased when you have big holes in it that catches air, like our big grill! The grill area is our biggest problem.
