|Where the Technology Came from
For many years, race car builders and drivers have been controlling undercarriage turbulence to their advantage. By controlling the opening on the front of a race car for a specific amount of air to enter the vehicle, drag is reduced. This allows the car to be more stable, increases power, and reduces fuel consumption.
|Where do Aerodynamic Problems Begin?
All vehicle aerodynamics begin at the front of the vehicle, so efforts to eliminate aerodynamic problems should begin there. Surplus air traveling underneath a vehicle creates significant turbulence. The Turbo Shield diverts the surplus air around the vehicle and down the sides.
Rear aerodynamic problems are caused by uncontrolled air at the front of a vehicle. The Turbo Shield turns a rear negative drag into a rear positive push. Thus eliminating the need for a rear aero device on every trailer.
|Improved Fuel, Mileage
Attached to a vehicle just in front of the axle, the Turbo Shield greatly reduces undercarriage turbulence. With significantly less vehicle drag, operators of semi-tractors, straight trucks, motor homes and pick-ups can get improved fuel mileage.
