The Renault centerline cooling system isn't similar to any other 'CCS' because it lies on top of the engine directly behind the driver, while the other CCSs stand further back, behind the engine/above the turbo area...testing wrote: ↑Tue Oct 13, 2020 7:26 pmNice drawings of the monocoque, but it forgets to mention what the function is of the air duct below the roll hoop.
I believe that the top intake is used for combustion and is used to cool hydraulics. The bottom intake is used to cool the ERS.
(I suspect that the combustion intake and ERS cooling will be swapped next year, similar to most cars on the grid)
The car is basically an RS.19B with an almost identical 2019 chassis + internals and reshaped sidopds and nose. So yes there is plenty of room for improvement on the paper... but with the very limited tokens, they can't (and dont wanna) build a new car.
Yes.but if they were to change that, would that require changing the whole of the "Survival Cell /forward of B-B" which is worth 2 tokens?
Yes, so I couldn't rememeber where I found it, however after looking through again, I realise it was from someone else on the thread on the end of page 3 (his username: PowerandtheGlory), and unfortunately did not state his sources for this information. My bad.

That's why the car has no transition between the new thin nose and the old large tub
That's a clear performance loss
But the team might change the rollhoop design and/or the cooling system inside
