The FFH has a long and low nose, give me concern over dragging the nose on anything.  Especially after I had a clear bra installed on it, which wraps under the nose.  I tried measuring the approach angle using a digital angle gauge.  I did my best to find the line just across the front edge of the front tires and placed a rod from the center of that line out to the front nose of the car.  About 12.5 degrees, but I could be off a degree or two, perhaps more.  12.5 degrees is not much.  I have a sports car and it is supposedly 11.9, and I am terrified of hitting that nose.  Anyone found a spec on approach angle.  I looked and came up empty.  Just wondering what the value really is.

We've talked about it some but I don't recall any specific numbers mentioned. 

Your effort is the most I've seen anyone do.

Let me do some research...I just so happen to work for a company that specializes in these kinda measurements... Let me see if a friend may even have the official specs he can pull up to read in his lab...tomorrow..
