Just found this site. Great to find a Magnum Only site. Stationed at Offutt AFB, NE. Im into the world of stereo mods. Havent done much more than that to the Magnum. Springs are the only mods I am going to do other than stereo. Oh yeah I have a 05 SXT, just turned over 15K miles.

Welcome. We have actually been around for about a month, but suffered a server crash over thanksgiving and had to start over:mad: . I guess it was better that it happened while we were young. Help spread the word. I didn't see any Magnum only forums out there. I saw some Charger and 300c only forums. Hopefully, this will become the spot for Magnum info.

High Speed Buffeting

Old cars never used to do this. When they started with the "aircraft doors" pioneered in the modern era by the Ford Taurus and T-bird, it eliminated the recessed windows in frame channels and the rain gutters on cars. With the gutters and window channels, there was lots of turbulence all around the car. When a window was open there was so much air tumbling around it could not set up a vibration. With the smooth exterior of the modern cars when the laminent flowing air finds a hole it must pressurize and evacuate the cabin rapidly causing the helicopter (buffeting) noise. Cracking open a second window makes it impossible for he air to pressurize the cabin and in turn eliminates the annoying sounds.
Sorry for not getting back in a while. The buffeting I'm talking about is from the turbulance created by the big rigs. Anytime I get close to them the car gets an unstable feel to it. It kind of a "nervious" feel is the way to discribe the condition. Wasn't sure if it has to do with the roof shape or what. And yes I do get the buffeting sound in the car with the windows down , but only over 50 mph. We have a Pacifica that does it real bad at 35+ mph too.
