    Ram is 0.36, so slightly higher.

    Remember Drag Coefficient and Drag Area are different things. The RAM would have a HUGE drag area compared to the S-series, so the drag force would be significantly higher.

    ...Not trying to pick a fight/start an argument, its just very hard to imagine.
    If the drag forces at rest resulted in the same drag coefficient I could believe that (0=0)....but at 100mph, I just don't buy it.
    Well they can have the same drag coefficient, but the frontal area is enormous. Drag force = Cd * area*Velcoity squared * air density yada yada.

    So its gonna have much higher drag than an s-series

    *edit
    didnt see travis's response. Also didnt know that my other post registered as a blog. huh. lol

    I'm definitely going to go back and read all of that last article, but damn. VW really screwed the pooch on this whole deal. It's amazing what companies will do to skirt the laws and save a penny.

    VW isn't the only company that did it. But the witch hunt is solely focused on them regardless.

    VW/Audi vehicles start off in Eco-oriented mode and will disengage Eco after the steering wheel is turned >15*.
    This does not look good for our Deutsche-friends

    Why TF does that mater? Does the law state that it should be engaged 100% of the time? You don't need eco mode in a parking lot

    Because the amout you are turning has little to do with the requirements for emissions. That's my guess.
    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    Yes. Whatever you use to pass emissions tests can't just be turned off in other situations.

    The issue is that any logic used that increases emissions or bypass emissions controls during normal driving is deemed a Defeat Device.
    This is a problem because OEMs would be able to show that they meet emissions standards during dyno testing, but in the real world the emissions would be much higher during normal driving.

    The issue with the logic using 15 degrees of steering angle as a criteria for switching out of Eco Mode is that all Certification Emissions testing was done with Eco mode on [No steering input used on a dyno].
    If the vehicle does not drive with Eco Mode on all the time in the real world, that testing cannot be an accurate representation of what actual emissions are.

    I saw that one had same thought. Engine is prob running half the normal RPM, might it be an awd?

    I think the right badges are LE and AWD on the bottom.

    Toyota engineering > whatever the hell she was trying to do.

    Poor RAV3. lol

    If its AWD, it's probably wrecked the center diff too.


    Fascinating.
