I have one set of the 3M mounting circles left.. where should I try putting them to move the screen lower? Is there a certain formula to determine the most effective windshield height?
Hi Mikey,
With your measurements I am surprised that you are getting so much buffeting. I got some buffeting, but I am 5-10 with 30 in inseam and if I dropped down about 3 inches it was pretty calm. However I still didnt get as much air protection as I wanted, so now I ordered a Mirage 2.
Dont use your last set of dots until you get the position figured out! Use duct tape or simmilar to temporarily fix the screen to test at different heights, then use the dots.
Good Luck,
B-
