Excellent thread, really
. I am taking this as a sort of baseline for my setup. Until now I am getting a CxS ~1.14 and CzS ~1.8 which is much less than what you are quoting. What ride height you are running the calculation at?
I am not sure why CzS is so off respect to literature...
I believe the car was setup the same as Perrin did - so 20mm front 50mm rear as measured at the reference plane. Ravelli did a MSc(?) thesis study with the Perrin and got a peak CzS of 3.48 at 10mm front 55mm rear. You're getting those numbers with the Perrinn?
In general you won't see real numbers quoted in literature because teams don't want that data out there, and there aren't many teams publishing peer reviewed articles. Gascoyne and Agathangelou wrote a paper in '98 with numbers for Tyrrell who by the publishing date were on their way out of the sport and selling their entry to BAR.
