    Found this, maybe someone wants to know it.

    CR-X
    ----------------------------
    Aerodynamic drag factor
    CD=0.30
    Lift coefficient
    CL=0.10
    Yawing moment factor
    (At the time of yaw angle 6°)
    CYM=0.03

    what is yawing moment factor??? do you have the skidpad number for the 88-91 crx si's??

    an interesting note...the crx hf's had a slightly lower CD (.29) and i think it is because they didnt come with a passenger side mirror. no mirrors=mad aerodynamics boost!

    Drop the mirror, add cameras. :D :D :D

    John, I could've sworn the CRX drag coefficient was something like 0.34.

    I got that from Honda Japans website while I was just putting around. I couldn't find any others, if I do I'll post them. There is a lot of info there if you take the time to rummage through it all. I had to run the site through a translator, some of it comes out kind of funny.

    Wow. I guess it really is that low. Maybe I should keep my CRX instead of parting it out...
