    Why do you want it? At the event, car to pit telemetry serves little to no purpose. You can't bring the car in or signal the driver easily, so what do you gain?

    I'd say somewhere between the two is more realistic. There probably aren't many FSAE cars making ~200kg of downforce, given how few run wings.

    Yes, just had to find a picture of Hockenheim on Google.

    I also gave up on doing the livery in Solidworks, as it was such a PITA. For the livery renders I just used Photoshop.
