By “big picture” are you talking about how the aero works as a whole, how different parts interact or where the bigger gains are coming from?
As opposed to the minutiae of design variations between teams. Because that's so dependent on getting the whole system working.
It's an amateur CAD model on a public forum, the results will never be perfectly representative of a real car in motion. It's just to get an idea of effects. If you throw a McL t-tray on that model, or a RB beam wing, or a Merc sidepod, effects will be shown, and they will be valid to the extent that you can see how they affect the flow field regardless of upstream flow. Those elements aren't minutia, they're the meat and potatoes of this forum; minutia would be modeling all the mirrors and testing those. Which reminds me, I want to add one more element to the request list:
-model and test all the various rear view mirror designs
