Elan made airfoils starting at $275


Recommended Posts

we don't have an official number. The wing was made for an indy/champ car then shrunken(chord) and lengthened(width) for the dop2, then shrunk (chord) and made from aluminum for the np01. then we got a hold of it. 

 

We have run a full Open air cfd on it. you can grab the profile from our CFD page. https://9livesracing.com/cfd-testing

All I need is the Coordinates file to load into my program.  I can try to develop based on your posted photo, but if the aspect ratio has been modified I will get incorrect results.

Could you make some fiberglass airfoils of profiles of my choice? How much would just the airfoil part about six feet wide cost? Also, is there an email adress that I could contact you on?

we don't do fiberglass. ours are very light. weighing in at .2lbs per in. comparable carbon weighs in at .14lbs per inch. just a .06Lbs difference. to fiberlgass, the difference would be even smaller.

What is your take on mounting on the trunk lid vs cutting and mounting on the frame?

opinion is. the best trunk lids in the world are mounted on rubber. so when you wing/spoiler is trunk mounted it's going to move. moving wings/spoilers = changing AOA. if your AOA moves around that means your downforce and drag will constantly be changing.

 

cliff notes trunk mounts will not be as consistent as frame mounts.

Could you do some math for my 2001 Audi TT AWD hard top? and why would you not mount on the roof in clean air?

What math? The numbers posted apply to the wing, regardless of what car it's on.

 

As for mounting it on the roof, you would get good performance out of the wing, but the downforce is going to be distributed between the front and rear wheels. Generally wings are used to increase downforce on just the rear.

Unless they're on a sprint car.
