In the US, of the cars you mentioned, only the Toybaru 86 is actually cheaper than a base Corvette. Also, once it is tuned to 500 up and 1.2g on a skidpad, no I'm not thinking it will be cheaper than the Vette.trinidefender wrote: ↑Tue Jul 09, 2019 10:06 pmLotus exige, Ariel atom, caterham.
Hell you can take a BRZ/FRS/GT86 and tune it to be a whole lot faster for less money.
The argument you make is silly.
I feel like this is purely for marketing. I can't see much benefit from teaming up with an F1 team like racing point for this.Morteza wrote: ↑Tue Dec 10, 2019 4:48 pmhttps://twitter.com/PlanetGMD/status/12 ... 0694487040
Interesting that racing point have a wind tunnel but don't use it for their F1 operations. Probably an issue with how big the cars have gotten perhaps.
You're looking at total pressure not static pressure. For Df you want to look at static pressure.
Most F1 wind tunnels were designed in the 90s for 25-40% models with no outwash as you say, but scale (really they blockage ratio) is the biggest factor. Toyota and Sauber (BMW) built their tunnels for full size models with moderate blockage ratios - which is even better for 60% scale models as they are limited to. The sidewalls of the Racing Point tunnel bow outwards to try and prevent the streamlines around the model squeezing against the wall - but it really is too small for modern F1. Ferrari basically had to rebuild their wind tunnel 5/6 years back for 60% models at great expense and even use AeroLab/Fondmetal for some of their road car stuff.
