I compared the drag factors on my new black model D and the one year old grey model D at the gym with two damper settings. They are as follows:
Damper / Grey / Black
5 / 126 / 147
10 / 198 / 231
I basically have to adjust about 2.5 damper settings to get the same drag. Granted, the grey is a year old and has some dust in the fan, but not too much since it is cleaned regularly. I read on the C2 website that a brand new model D should have a drag factor of 210-220 at damper setting 10, and my black is 231 after about 300k meters.

If the 210-220 range is true, its possible there is something about the black models that makes them harder to row. But the weird thing is that C2 says a new rowers should have a drag factor of 90-100 at damper setting 1, and mine is only 83 (That is when my damper is all the way to the bottom. Is that setting 1 or zero?)
