1966 MGM Grand Prix Autodromo Nazionale Monza Racing Sequences
IIRC cigar shape give the biggest drafting effect.

"what was roughly your distance to the cars in front?"
Can't rightly recall but as close as could be. To lose the slipstream was curtains. My ride was probably down a couple of BHP compared to the likes of champions Peter Moennick and Horst Kroll so it was crucial to go like the devil on Lap01 to be on their tails exiting the Moss Hairpin complex. Two BHP is a lot in FV.
I neglected to mention in my initial post that the race distance was 20 laps. I was timed at a best of 1m50s so to lose 110s over 20 laps would average a loss of 5-1/2s per laps. It meant that much.
I sold the Kelly to our fellow SRMZ member here, robwmack, in mid-1975 and he ran it for several seasons. I'm sure he can verify that it was down on power compared to the Top Guns.

Now... How do you think it could apply to the mods? It would increase even more their slipstream, or reduce to 85 meters as in original cars?
But I repeat: You are invited to sit on my bench. Find out how the seat feels...

I just was wondering how your patch (as is) would affect mods. I understand that it wasn't designed for them. And, of course, I'm not asking you for modifying the mods.
I'm sorry if I wasn't clear.

There is little damping in a branch that would dissipate the motion. Once you set a bush in motion it's going to take a while to settle down again even if the turbulence around it is gone
Correct me if I'm wrong but FV are rather low powered, so the draft comes into effect much sooner since they hit terminal speed sooner than the stronger cars that can accelerate for longer.
