I was in engineering at college for two years it sucked. :( I just wasn't up to it math wise.

Did you think about putting fenders over the wheels or using full moon type wheels instead of the wire ones for better aerodynamics.

If you have seen the wheels they use for closed circut Olympic Bike races I think those would work best.
