Default Re: Optimum Ambient Temperature For Motor When Riding

i'd prefer better than the average 0.9 drag coefficient, and the adhesion coefficient with my front drum brake and rear coasterbrake is 0.85 on dry ground which calculates to a stopping distance of 76.83 feet from 45mph (obviously.)

now, i'm sure my engine would run better if i could lower the drag coefficient, perhaps by half, which would put the drag at 43.118701 Newtons, and my Relative Velocity at 40.5 mph (based on a 0% grade and a 45mph measured velocity,) but unfortunately, my engine can't control the environment it functions in.

to simplify, 75 degrees, sunny and dry, no wind, flat ground, near the beach.
wut? lol, kidding and am really impressed with the extent of your research. (Now if you could explain some of the larger words to me?)

I would have said a lower temp then 75 for a ChinaGirl, but would have been close to your research.

Was very surprised with the Honda and clones. They are so cleverly cooled that on a cool day, takes forever to get em hot and running optimally. 2 smokers, hot by the time I get to a stop sign in either direction.
worst apocalypse ever
