Re: Insulating Engine
There was a VERY in depth discuss a while back on IC titled :
Tire, Aero & other resistance vs. MPG (HIGHLY technical)
The result is basicly Rolling resistance is a big factor and goes up faster in cold weather than aerodynamics does... But both increase in cold weather the same time the Engine gives out less.... RR is the larger force for most cars up to about 40 MPH... In cold weather even the Aerodynamic Insight with Low RR Tires the RR is larger effective counter force than Aerodynamics up to about 50 to 60 MPH...
Go over to IC if you want to read the whole thing....
yes that does sound more like what I was thinking of... but no small task and lots to concider.... I think you are further ahead in the concidering department then I am at this point....
I am no where near a test system for this winter.... maybe next year....
I agree... the inishg talready has RR tires... already very Aerodynamic.... engin heta is all that lef for us to focus on.
