That's what I meant GM7.
But it still doesn't make sense to me, render of VF-18 is too different from photo of VF-17. And also, looks to me like different rear rims, with deeper position of central nut. Maybe it's best for us to wait photos from testing to make any reasonable comparison.
10 cm of wheel base is purely mental waste of time
it s more the result of package optimizatiton than a specific setup
cause from a setup dynamic perspective even a different rear suspensions affects a zillion more the car behaviour on sharp turns than 10 cm can
and that s what we ve seen so far
cars with stiffer rear suspensions struggling to optimize a constant ride height, while cars with soft ones getting the beneifit of a dynicmic setup and better traction in sharp turns ( obvioulsy loosing the advantage on fast turns where stiffer suspensions allow more grip, but compensating with their dynamic aero )
in the end wheel base means nothing
it s just th result of an optimization of the suspensions ( stiffer suspensions try to compensate the aero disadvantage with a bit motre space behind the wheels )
