CFD testing Mini Z

Lately I started getting a Mini-Z F1 car ready for the Belgian Mini Z cup of 2009. It'll also have to work as a flagship for my R/C tuning company ΠAES (Pi Automotive Engineering Service). For the technical stuff, I got it covered; 3010 FETS, X-Speed motor, full alu/carbon chassis, 2.4Ghz board, etc...

But, the most important factor in F1 is ofcourse aerodynamics. Yes, aerodynamics work on a 1/28 scale racer (just look at the differences in lap times between a Mini Z with f.e. an Enzo body vs. a Mini Z with a Pan body (Schuppe). I downloaded Symlab, which is a CFD (Computational fluid
) -testing program. But I don't know how to get the full car, a 2005 McLaren MP4/20, on my screen, and how to add/change aero bits. If someone knows how to do it, or if someone would help me, it would be greatly appreciated (+ if you have a company with an online store, I could put your companys name as sponsor on the car).

As said, help would be very much appreciated!
