F1 in Schools- Aerodynamics - Yasin

Post by yasin » Tue Feb 15, 2011 8:01 am

hey guys, we are designing a car for f1 in schools. We wanted some tips on the design to improve the speed and acceleration. Please could we have some tips on the aerodynamics of the car and how we should design it so that we can improve this.
1- How can we modify the spoilers to make the car faster?
2- How can we modify the nozzle or front of the car to make it faster?
3- how can we modify the body/center of the car to make it faster?
4- how can we modify the back end of the car to increase the speed?

thanks!!

There are so many topics and threads on f1 in schools, I would look at using the "search" function first. There's a lot of info in the f1>aerodynamics section, and since this is your project, don't expect too much help (especially questions which have already been answered, that's why you should search first, then use google, then ask if you cant find anything here or on google, its supposed to be a research project after all isn't it?). just as a side thought, imagination sometimes pays off, so don't be afraid to be radical.
