To the people reading this, let me know below if you'd like to see a write up on "what lift really is" or something...
I'd like that. Mostly because i happened to bump into papers titled something like "new theory of lift" and they either look still incomplete or proper BS. Essentially, nobody seems to actually know. And, since i have my own BS swirling in my head, i'd be great to have more knowledgeable people telling if and where i'm wrong.
But the topic would probably deserve its own thread.

Hopefully, more people are interested in discussing the true nature behind aerodynamic forces...

Second this, I love learning about aero stuff.

Another +1 for this.
I think that I ‘know’ what it is, but I would guess that a basic understanding is not an adequate description!

The difference between whether the fences are out-wash or not, it's clear that outwash fences can significantly improve the downforce under the floor.

Does diffuser stall in left case where fences dont push air out?
(What is diffuser AoA in part with largest slope(I think this would be diffuser exit)?

In general does vortex flow in tunnels delay flow separation, so we can push diffuser AoA to the limit?
On the left, when fences are not out-washed, air in diffuser is not stall. when not outwashed, the flow into diffuser is too much, the diffuse angle is not fully expending the flow.

So @latios how are the updates coming? This was mega cool thread before it got derailed 😅
I'm too busy with my formal work (avionics) in the past 1+ month.
Thank you all for answering questions and discussion in the thread, I'm about to do updating analysis in the coming days!

I know it is probably in here somewhere, but what is the change in Cf of drag in these 2022 cars?
