ahhhh yes... You mean kind of shape the front wing of the car like the wings of the Grumman X-29 plane. Not with such a great angle of sweep, but we get the idea. Yes, apparently the X-29 was very unstable because of this, as the vortices were drawn towards the center of the aircraft. I'm not really sure what would happen on the front wing of a forumla 1 car, but I would've thought that F1 teams have already tested such an idea. Perhaps there would somehow be less downforce produced by the front wing or something because if you look at Indy cars' front wings on the oval high speed circuits, you can see the reverse sweep of them, but on those circuits, they don't need very much downforce. Perhaps on F1 cars, the reduction in drag doesn't compensate for the loss in downforce, where they need substantially more downforce than indys on oval circuits.mirdavanfe wrote:wow this is a very technical website here,i'm a very active f1 fan but only recently have i started getting interested in the tech side of it all,i have no engeneering backgroung or knowledge so please be indulgent
on the subject of front wing and especially the vortexes,i was wondering if it wasn't possible to prevent them by doing this=
this little dash(-)being the nose cone,and this(>)being the front wing(with the angle obviously exagerated for the query purpose!
so we have here a nose with the front wing on it...... -> well ya get the picture!!,so the vortexes are happening at each end of the wing because the wing was straight(not anymore) or bent backward,but what if the wing was bent forward like this.......-<??? i know there would still be a massive disturbance hitting the cone in it's very center,but couldn't that massive extra air being dragged in the very center of the wing be of some use to the diffuser or get to the underneath splitter to help the cooling??
the fool is ready for the ignorant bashing!!
