Yes, we can make these small adjustments to the CAD they, seem very reasonable.
About the issues with MFlow. I somewhat expected a little trouble and guess we will wait a few more weeks for MVRC race one 2022 to fix this, although I think it should not take very long,
However, please report issues over here, so I can fix them and preserve the solutions for other people:
https://mantiumflow.com/mantiumflow-cfd ... e-support/
I will get in touch with the new staff to finalize the calendar.
I would, only the website doesn't work either :D

Hi guys,
so I will try to implement most suggestions regarding the CAD files for race 1. This will not get done until next Wednesday though. Matteo has prepared new suspension parts and I will increase those 10mm areas in the floor volumes.
I am a bit worried about MFlow not working on Windows and the support page not working.
Does the page really not work? I tried on a few computers and browsers and it seems fine to me.
Also is there someone else who has issues with MFlow on windows? If so, try to copy-paste as much info to the support page, so I can check it out.

Haha, for once something went smooth and fast. New CAD parts with updated rules are up. Have a good weekend!

Tried it on two PC's and mobile, none of which allow me to submit the form...

I can confirm that the support page crashes when trying to post.
MFlow also crashes on me:

Thank you very much for taking our suggestions into account! The new surfaces look good, I think suspension and brake ducts are much more appropriate now.

So I have also tried running MFlow on Windows and get the exact same error message.
Tried posting on the support forum but also get the same error about cookies and javascript, I have even disabled uBlock and put the site into the allow list for both in Chrome but no dice.

Was on a short weekend trip. I will look into all this. Pretty strange, I guess updates in Wordpress disabled the support Forum and some updates in Windows broke MFlow. #-o

Hi, I am not sure about this rule:

11.3 The rear wing must be attached with at least three sections with one or two such sections inside of the volume RV_RR_WING_PYLON_V01 attaching to the gearbox.

Whats does it mean "at least three sections"?

Haven't looked through the rules etc yet but am hoping to produce something.

Matteo - I assume it is 'the rear wing must be attached by at least three points of contact, with one or two being inside the rear wing pylon volume, attaching to the gearbox'

Hi, another preliminary question.

Which is the COG for our 2022 cars? I guess it is not 1850mm considering the different wheelbase (now 3600mm, 3450mm during 2020 edition of the MVRC).

The official laptime simulator shows 1920mm as a default: should we consider it the "official" COG?
