Oh yeah, missed that part but to me it does look like it had a big positive caster angle, at least the merc, i Cant really see on the STRTim.Wright wrote:That's exactly that I said:Holm86 wrote: No, the top point is mounted behind the lower point, this is positive caster angle, and that does increase negative camber when turning.
You achieve higher KPI by having the top mount further inward than the lower mounting point. That would also make to increase the KPI to reduce the scrubbing of the new wider tires ...KPI does the opposite of caster in terms of camber angle though.Tim.Wright wrote:If you want negative camber angle on the outer wheel you need to minimise the kpi and increase the caster angle.

Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

In the last years they set so many trends (exhaust-through RW pylon, RW endplates, huge multifonctional airscope way before Merc did, FW cascade design... ). I bet the sidepods inlets are another smart way of making profit of the new regulations (as Ferrari did, but in a totally different fashion). Add the drastic reduction of the sidepods exits compared to previous racers, and here we have a very neat and impressive car. =D>
Their car last year was possibly the longest. SO it would not surprise me if this one is shorter.popovic94 wrote:Is it just me, or new car looks shorter even than last years car? Like the wheelbase is shorter than any other car for about 200-300mm?
