I was expecting that lament about "expectations" and "reality" case, but I will agree in many cases rules are quite dumb and not bring what was supposed to be.
Yes, there are allowed 5 changes to homologation document in 5 years, yet don't expect "new car each year".
Diffuser is certainly fed from the sides of the floor as it is in general in prototype sportscars. However what you might miss about the floor (and any other aero device) is that every homologated car has to satisfy new set of aerodynamic criterias for safety reasons, beside getting into allowed working window. I can only tell that this point makes aero development more multi-dimensional than before.jjn9128 wrote: ↑Fri Jan 15, 2021 3:03 pmBeen looking closer. Really interesting rear end. The diffuser is angled quite severely towards the sides of the car which is where it's clearly fed from. Then ~500mm ahead of the rear tyre there's a sort of skirt to "seal" off the floor (influence tyre squirt) a bit ahead of the rear tyre. Can't tell much from the front but only looks like a single plane front wing(?) with really low front wishbones.
You can choose which element you can adjust in terms of aero. It can be front wing, it can be rear wing, it can be anything else as long as there is only one element adjustable. In most cases obvious will be to have adjustable rear wing.
They changed covering wishbone requirement for LMH regulations.
well... you can tell that by first set of LMH regulations, where aero numbers were actually there.
Glickenhaus will use twin turbo V8, the only car which is supposed to have NA V8 is ByKolles, and obviously Alpine with their rebranded and adjusted Rebellion R13.
In general I think racing should be much better due to BoP and working windows ruleset, however from engineering point of view... I wouldn't say it's step back, but just step on the side... In the end they wanted to make cars more affordable to make with less budget spent to bring more teams/manufacturers there.
And about GR010... there are plenty of adopted/adjusted solutions from well-tested and reliable TS050.
