How about drag? I thought the whole purpose of traditional v-noses was to eliminate high pressure drag under the nose. This design would seem to collect it.
Haha, true, I reckon it could be built to pass the crash test though.
I thought the purpose of the original V nose was to raise this area of the chassis (the bottom) as high as possible. In 2009 and 2010 there were no limits on how high this area could be. The V nose stretched the minimum dimensions to make the height as high as possible, maximum the mass flow rate of air to the splitter area.
This concept uses the V nose to do this again, although in a completely different way.
Whilst the ridges will create drag, the reduced frontal area of this will offset this, no?
