Thanks! I'd love to get some CFD numbers, but I fear it would end up producing lift, or being super draggy - sometimes not knowing it better :lol: Plus I have no experience with CFD and wouldn't know where to start, and don't really have the time to learn :/

Yes! Should be available to download (for free) sometime next week, if all goes to plan!

Very good news!
About CFD: I can do a rough simulation, but I would need a good STEP (nurbs or similar based) geometry to start with (no STL or any faceted CAD format).

Cheers for the offer - Though I have to model using polys - not nurbs, which is necessary for performance reasons in the sim.

I can't wait to try it on the track! Excellent mod.

EDIT: I tried it during the lunch break: fun to drive, accurate geometric models, realistic dynamics, excellent steering feel. The only weak point is the sound of the engine that has some slight imperfections. I confirm my first impression: excellent mod! =D>
