Re: P.S.

The 2+2 having a longer wheelbase would be much more stable at that speed. I'm not 100% sure about drag but I suspect the stability is a bigger issue than any coefficient of drag difference.

Re: P.S.

He said why he used a 2+2 some time in the past. cant remember exactly but I think it was because 2 seaters and 2+2s are in differant classes. so he picked it to be more compete with lesser cars.
