Honestly, no. I can tell you with the windshield up that it is fairly significant.

Default Re: Coefficient of Drag & Frontal Area

After spending some time at the kitchen table this morning my ME son and I (ChE) came up with the approximate values of:

Cd: ~0.9
Area: ~16 ft2 (windshield - 9, rest of cart - 7)

I have some questions about installing Lithium ion batteries in a 72 volt Bad Boy Buggy and was wondering if you could help in the setup.
