    Gonna build one soon, was wondering which edges should be rounded and which might benefit from a larger radius or close to none at all.

    which areas might create the least splashing on my motor? Also how will square vs radius have on performance? the bottom corners (sides, back)?

    All the bottom corners should be squared off, or water will climb up the sides at speed.
