Looks like I missed something here. However "outwashing" radiator air sounds like something that could work, as it is low energy air. Keeping that away from the rear wing sounds like a good idea. How you find the energy to somehow "outwash" this air into the free stream is something I would not know how to answer. But maybe directing it in front of the rear tires could be a good idea.
Yes, it has multiple effects. Granting cleaner air to the rear wing is one of them. But it also allows for the maximum downwash, with a good pressure recovery on whole rear end of the car, diffuser included. And yes, the low quality air from the radiator is thrown on the rear wheels, decreasing drag and lift.LVDH wrote: ↑Tue Oct 13, 2020 6:29 pmHowever "outwashing" radiator air sounds like something that could work, as it is low energy air.

I'm obsessed with the sidepod area for better airflow. It actually became quite irritating to me because im spending most of my time for some smart solution that doesn't work (chimney engine cover air outlet for instance) on that area.
There was some talk back in 2019 about switching to 2021 (now 2022) style cars for 2020. Link.
Just keep in mind that the current race was delayed by 2 weeks. I guess the next and last race will follow the same fate. So you probably have 3 weeks at disposal.
The next race is scheduled for the 15.11.2020. I do not mind delaying i a further week if you guys perfer this.Team_Bart wrote: ↑Wed Oct 21, 2020 10:39 amHi guys, nice to see the competition is still going on! Since I have a new computer and a bit more spare time, I'm thinking about re-joining the competition. However, I see there is only 1 race left this season and it is already next week, so that is a bit too soon for me... Is there already something known about next season? With other words, is it worth it to start developing a car with the regulations of this season or will the rules completely change for next season?
If you do this exercise, it will be of great value for next season, trust me.Team_Bart wrote: ↑Fri Oct 23, 2020 9:46 amHi guys, thanks for the answers! As understand it is very likely there are new rules for next season. Therefore I think it doesn't really make sence to develop a whole new car within three weeks that can only be used in one race (except from the fun part ofcourse). So, if everything goes well, I'll rejoin the competition next season! Good luck for the last race, I"ll be there with my photocamera to get some inspiration for next season
Thanks, I wonder if I could find a copyright free version of that music....
