    I agree with most of your points. Universities can learn a lot about thier car by putting a quality driver in it. However, even though SCCA is amature, there are a lot of quality drivers who have...

    I don't understand this. If you look at the top 10 cars from each competition, they are all pretty well engineered. If you look at GFR, they not only win design but dominate the whole competition. ...

    Interesting topic.

    I remember the steering on our older cars to be really light. Maybe it was because I sucked at driving. It might be because of the 13" tires.

    However, between switching...

    Wouldn't it be funny if you just switched the G brand with the H brand and your car went faster right out of the box. hmmm

    Z,

    Nice overview. Have you ever driven a shifter kart? At least on the ones I have driven, statically the caster causes quite a bit of aligning torque. Granted, they have lots of caster and...

    Like he mentioned, in a hairpin the inside might need to be steered 45deg and the outside 30deg. With parallel steer, they get steered the same. If the outside tire has 6 deg of slip, then the...

    Really Z,.....
    Even if the heavier loaded outside tire desired more slip angle than the lower loaded inside tire, it does not mean the tires would be toe-in when steered. I consider 100% ackerman...

    Try using pancake load cells on the mounts at the uprights. Really, all the other methods here aren't that great. I wouldn't really trust wind tunnels either, unless they were really big.

    How is your diffuser suspended? Does it secure straight to your hubs or go through your pushrods? In the past we have strain gaged our pushrods to measure downforce.

    The main downsides I can see to having only the front wing mounted to the monocoque are:

    1) At high speed the car will nose dive, so that when you hit the brakes you will definitely slap the wing...

    The front wing is probably ok. Both us and monash run a similar rear wing mounting and it really needs to be over constrained to not move. We added another lateral strut between the bottom a-arm...
