I KNOW I'm getting rear lift at speed; I can feel it. While I agree that would interesting to see, I'll leave it parties with more money, time, and science than I have to mess with. Certain parties that may already be working on a well made diffuser.

can you talk about your weight reduction?

Wait a minute, you plan on doing a time attack without a rear sway bar? Youre talking strict 1/4 mile right or real time attack..? Sorry not trying to derail this topic.

Vertical Fins

For you experts, is there a purpose to the vertical fins, on side skirts, and lips. They can't stabilize the car, as they are too close to the side. Do these help with drag around the wheels, or do they just look good?

I've seen these on the McLarenn P1. The vertical fin is just downstream of the front tire. It's combined with a larger vertical fin that runs along the body.

My guess is that the swirling air coming out of the wheel needs to be re-stabilized and directed rearward.

I'm a bit disappointed that I didn't go now. Spent the day mulling over the events of the weekend and possible courses of action.

I didn't think the car was loose at WSIR, but I was also driving a heavily understeer biased setup at the time. Hopefully we'll have another opportunity to visit WSIR soon to do some experimenting with aero.

Now you know why half that front opening is faux from the factory! :p

IIRC, my Vmax was higher when I ran. I'd speculate lower rolling resistance and aero drag from smaller/higher offset wheels with smaller tires...

I believe I was running a muffler delete rather than an axleback at the time too, but the car was so pushy that I never noticed the rear getting loose...

Most if the fins are located just before the rear tire on the kits for these cars, so it's not serving the same purpose as the super engineered McLaren.

The thing that side skirts really do is limit the air coming underneath the car from the sides such that stability is gained...at least from my very basic understanding.

On a similar note, the McLaren P1 and the Lamborghini Aventador have 2 layer diffusers. How effective are these at generating downforce, while still diffusing the wake cross-section?
