At last – a book for those who like to modify the aerodynamics of their road cars!In this book author Julian Edgar explores a host of practical and low-cost techniques that you can do yourself without spending a lot of money or needing special facilities. Section 1 introduces aerodynamic drag and lift. The language is simple and straightforward – but still includes concepts such as drag co-efficients, lift co-efficients and the different types of drag that affect road cars. Section 2 is devoted to aerodynamic testing – directly measuring aerodynamic pressures, and seeing airflow patterns by the use of on-road wool-tuft testing. Section 3, the largest part in the book, covers aerodynamic modification. Fitting vortex generators, testing different undertrays, reducing drag, using turning vanes in intercooler ducting – all are covered in detail. In addition, techniques are described for reducing wind noise, building an effective engine intake that breathes high-pressure cold air, siting bonnet vents in the correct location, and testing airflow through intercoolers. With nearly 300 full-colour photos and diagrams, this book is practical and down to earth – and uses techniques able to be carried out on the road.

Interested in hybrid and electric cars - and other forms of alternative propulsion? This is the book for you! In Section 1 you'll find a detailed discussion of the different forms of motive power for cars - from turbines to hybrids, from human powered to fuel cell. Which is best now - and which is likely to be best in the near future? In Section 2 lots of different electric and hybrid cars are tested - from the mega-dollar Lexus LS600hL to a home-converted electric Hyundai, from driving a Prius across half of Australia to sampling one of the most innovative of hybrid cars ever made, the original Honda Insight. Finally, Section 3 covers a bunch of modifications that the author has carried out on hybrid cars. From the very easy - adding a pressurised cool-air intake for the engine, to the complex - turbocharging a Toyota Prius.... and lots in between. Along the way you'll find a host of interesting breakout boxes, covering material as diverse as the best way of calculating vehicle fuel efficiency, design questions for human powered vehicles, aerodynamic modification of vehicles - and even, what it was like to drive an electric car on the moon! Truly something for every electric and hybrid car enthusiast...
