Aeroscreen perspex extension

Guys,

We currently have a 50mm tall carbon aero lip, but are finding it a little bit windy.

We have the standard Westfield sports seat on rails and need to maintain the ability to move them forwards and back to suit the 3 drivers.

Does anyone have a aeroscreen with any little perspex extensions, kind of like the ones Ariel fit to the Atom. I think these would make a good bit of difference.

Any ideas?

you could buy some perspex type stuff ['lexan' being one and virtually bullet proof] and experiment with different sizes - would have to make it tho as there isnt a ready made one

I suspected that might be the case, oh well, better get on ebay for a big sheet of Lexan to play with.

Cheers.

I would suggest that you try it with something else first before you go to the extent of buying sheets , if it does work as well as expected I've some smaller sized carbon offcuts you could have if you wanted to just make a carbon top piece , just pm me if of any use and I'll drop in the post.

I was thinking something like this might do the trick. http://www.bikehps.com/mra/variotouringscreens.html

They use the air flow over the aeroscreen to create a venturi effect and shoot the turbulent air a bit higher.... or something.

I've spoken to a couple of bikes with them and they say the extra deflector seems to work.... will give it a try anyway.
