First post on the forum, I'm a little bit late to the discussion, but getting the car ready was the priority.
I'm from Poland, 23 y.o. and I study mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Munich. I wanted to learn more about practical side of aerodynamics and improve my CAD skills (I'm using Fusion 360). MVRC seems to be a perfect fit, especially because of the competitive nature of it. Also I'm a PC hardware enthusiast, but CFD simulations were not considered when I build my setup. Upgrade might be coming soon, though. Is anyone using an AMD Ryzen CPU?
I found out about the challenge when I started browsing the forum during F1 testing in March. I've been following the thread since then. The exam period was in full swing at that time (and as it is now), so I had a go at designing an 2018 car after the MVRC season ended to check out the Mantium Flow software. My current car is boxy and rough, I think I'm doing something wrong with the sidepods/cooling because these things are massive!

My first impression is that Variante and OKRacing will fight for the victory. Baltic has a simple car and it could be a good choice.
Wow, that's a wild prediction! Not too long until we find out!
