As Promised, here is Update 1 :)

Image
Update 1 with Livery Applied - Livery Done by myself :D

Image

Cutout on floor removed, engine cover refined, mini wing added to rear wing for extra downforce, new endplates (not pictured in update 1 livery image)

Image

Brand New front wing, inspiration taken from redbull RB6 front wing :)

Image

Diffuser shown, endplates extend all the way to diffuser, new cooling hole, its very basic, but it needs to be worked on a bit more :D

Thats all for now 8)

Have you just used aerofoils or semi circles for your wings ?

Wow that nose would bifurcate another car in a crash. Awesome! Awesome livery too, and interesting sidepods. Looking good mate.
I've found a way of ducting exhaust right to the diffuser edge like in 2011 and created a new wheel fastener that could allow sub 2 second pitstops see them here --> My 2013 F1 Concept Project

Thanks mate, Well It wasnt the intention to slice another car :lol: Just trying to get as much air to the floor of the car :D the sidepods took a while to say the least :lol:

Its nice to receive such positive feedback, thankyou very much :D

Here it is Update 2! this is the car I will take to the next text, Image

Here are the updates and why:

New Turning vanes: to help direct more flow around the slim sidepods

New Rear Wing: winglet held by 2 endplates rather than 3 to increase area of wing exposed to the air.

New Engine cover, part 1: The intake, intake higher but slimmer, allowing more clean air to the rear wing

New Engine Cover , part 2: Sharkfin removed due to the fact that it wont be as strcuturally strong as a regular engine cover and the sharkfin will flap around and buffert alot more.

New Barge Boards: Look similar, however they help seal under the nose much better and direct more cleaner air round the slim sidepod shape.

Floor: Cutout returned (ala Mclaren 2009) to get more air under the car to help feed the new diffuser which I will unveil very soon 8)

The front suspension needs a complete rethink

Suspension isnt my strong point I dont really know loads about it, I'm more focused on the aerodynamics with this car, which is why the front suspension is at such an acute angle
