So by the time of departure Allison must have knew something.PlatinumZealot wrote: ↑Sun Apr 02, 2017 1:02 pmThis! Taken from off the shelf is exactly what happened here. Being the new guy James would not have ran this risky concept and put his reputation on the line just like that. Everyone agrees that it is not James concept but i believe he did allow its development. There must have been alot of data files they dusted off to show him for it to be integrated into the early monocoque design. And remember the monocoque design must be locked in quite early.TEHNOS wrote: ↑Thu Mar 30, 2017 5:14 pmFlew over 48 pages of F2012 speculation thread, to summarize:
heavy Byrne involvement
revolutionary reduced radiators size
tons of words of thermal floor and revolutionary diffusor with great seal
sidepods pushed back for lessend blockage
and then F2012 appeared...
But it is indeed possible it took some time to mature, esp.sidepod wings, considering present complexity,being developed further as separate project, or was even taken from the shelf during past year reorganization,internal recruiting and renoved heavy Byrne involvment
Or is it possible to implement concept in circa 6 months?
