You are saying that as the speed of the car increases and hence the downforce - the suspension compresses, moving the A-arm into an upward position, whereby the exhaust is tuned to take advantange of the A-arm in this position? Makes sense. But then there comes the instance of body roll.. but it still should work as you want the more DF on the compressed side of the suspension.. so yes - very plausible if true.Gridlock wrote:I said it was intriguing, not significant. Generally I think exhaust treatment this year has been given way too much focus; it's not an EBD, it can't be used as an EBD curtain, and most damningly the clear intent (and therefore enforcement) of the rules is to make the exhaust plume as aerodynamically neutral as possible.hardingfv32 wrote:Please expand on the significance.Gridlock wrote:[I think the most intriguing part of the suspension arm/exhaust flow interaction, one that I alluded to in the RB thread, is that suspension arms move with speed relative to the exhaust.
The fact is we have no factual information on how the engine is affected by all these exhaust configurations this or last year. I am sure there are compromises made to the exhaust for the benefit of better aero packaging and exhaust outlet positioning. Maybe you can model this compromise or maybe there are politics involved over what department holds the most power in a particular team.Ganxxta wrote:but if the exhaust stay in the position this far forward, is it good for the power of the engine?
Of coarse we can only get excited about what we can see on this forum or is rumored. We do tend to make too much of many things. Participate when you find it fun.Gridlock wrote:most damningly the clear intent (and therefore enforcement) of the rules is to make the exhaust plume as aerodynamically neutral as possible.
