Hello, my name is efrén, I live in spain and have one lotus elise s1 to which I have installed the aileron of the elise 160, front splitter and clear headlight cover.

I need to know the Cx (aerodynamics) of the elise 160 exactly

I need this exact cx to put the accelerometer ( beltronics vector fx2 )with the correct parameters.

Thank you very much

Efrén if Riddlefox's instructions don't help you may find more information on SELOC it is the UK site and there are many with S1s there. That said I have never seen published aero data for the Elise.

I designed that product and wrote the manual, there are instructions in the manual for a specific coastdown test to estimate your car's cda.

Note: the cda is only needed for the horsepower calculation. You do not have to enter that information in order to do timed runs or for g-meter use.
