Like asking a Private to go fetch a left handed ratchet or a box of OD Green Grid squares from the Maintenance Chief.

I had a velocity stack on one of my cars growing up... Went in to just get a filter and the sales person insisted on helping me... All I was intending to do was match the filter... So, the pest is folling me asking me the year of the car and everything else... After I told him it was for a velocity stack... Finally I asked him if he knew what a velocity stack was and he didn't... Then asked how the hell he could help me... Moron's....
The principle of aerodynamics on our cars and full size cars isn't the same at all.... A body that performs well in a full size car won't always do the same in 1/10th.... There are so many more factors....
If aerodynamics were the same then a McLaren F1 body would actually handle well.....
