Re: Motorsports Reg crashed

Between all the headaches and extra money grabbing, i wonder at what point will Nats just cease to be worth the trouble. Did nats once, won't be back. If I'm trying to drop nats coin on racing then i'd rather get into track. My last nats experience was not what I'd call enjoyable. What's the coin v...

Re: Time Trial Nationals at NCM late Sept.

You're guna take your focus instead of the vette to the corvette track?!?! :lol: Yup. I have zero track experience and I would much rather risk bending a $3k Focus than a Corvette that I have wanted since they are new. Once I have more experience, I might take the 'vette. I completely understand, j...

Re: Do you need a Big Wáng?

Can you provide analysis for multiple element wangs that would be used for a FSAE car? I know one that needs some vertical down force assistance, front and rear. But then they are in the envelope of beggars. Yes....... https://9livesracing.com/shop?olsPage=products%2Fcfd-wind-tunnel&page=1&sortOpti...

Re: Do you need a Big Wáng?

We've got CFD data on the wang with the dual element @ 60mph. That's the closest speeds we have for auto-x. https://9livesracing.com/cfd-testing Note, more angle does not always mean more down-force. The Elan foil(the foil we've tooled) by itself actually stalls right above 8* AOA. With the dual ele...

Re: Wheel Weight Opinions

I figure the cost of CCWs is close to the cost of Forgelines?
