    Center Fin for XO-1

    Not sure if this is anyone here, but this looks like it should help keep the car straight. The idea came to mind when I was looking at the videos of the 160+ mph cars, but it looks like someone made one work for an XO-1. Depending on how strong it is, it may even help some in a roll over.

    It adds a small amount of drag which shifts the centre of pressure aft....like a dart or an arrow. One of the easiest ways to improve straight line handling

    It needn't be a single vertical fin, 2 x smaller verticals off the rear wing will do the same or better
