You are welcome.

 

We wreck front wings, flywheels, aero widths.  If anyone else has a rule they really like, let us know, we'll push the rules and get that banned too.  #whackashaq

Based on my limited aero knowledge, I'm not sure there's any benefit to putting a wing forward of the rear axle. You want it hanging back to get the most leverage on the rear tires.

 

I think.....

 

 

I am out of front downforce and have been trying to move my wing forward.  I asked this question to get one centered on the car so that we could better balance the flat floor downforce.

 

The above video is the front wing we tested for 2-3 laps at WGI before being black flagged.

I have run them on the roof and on the back a lot of it is up to the airo of the car.  Not every car has good airo on the back for wing placement.  And  rear wing placement needs front splitter to balance it out. And a rear wing needs a lot of hardware to last 7 hrs.

My best wind speed is on the roof of my car.

Are you running splitter diffusers?

Just for curiosity, why did CC get their panties in a bunch over the front wing?  It seemed pretty clever and well within the rules.  Did you have "How do you like me now!" written on it?

Someone high up didn't like it.  🤷‍♂️

I "really like" the JDM engine loophole. Can you ruin that, please. I don't feel like buying another engine...

That is the ugliest thing I have ever seen! (Not you the front wing!)

 

Did you get black flagged because they thought you where going in reverse?

 

That video is crazy, you are super fast. He is also supporting you 150% :) (and calling your car a piece of poop).....
