I'm probably making a simple mistake, but I am doing simulations on a car body with moving parts (the wheels). The first simulation I ran had good results, and thus I based this second one (where I changed the body geometry slightly) pretty much too have exactly all the values of the first except where changes for to geometry and regions were made accordingly. All the factors seem to be in line, but I am getting absurd results for drag and lift.

perhaps double check that the part surfaces are assigned to the correct boundaries in region, perhaps you set the car body part surface to the wheel boundary in the region.
