Quote from: Alex Knight on September 29, 2022, 13:56Do you think it's appropriate for a road car to have a big wing, or is it more drag than benefit?
Quote from: Petrus on September 29, 2022, 14:51´Road car´ is too wide a concept to be able to address. They range from 600 to 3000 kg and that is a fundamental difference.The heavier a car is the less the effect of negative lift because the forces are relatively smaller.Also ´drag´ already is an answer no?! If that is a factor worth attention for road speeds, then the potentially positive effects of a wing are too. Drag btw is not necessary ónly worse because of a wing.Ours is a light car with not particularly great aero at the back and even Toyota realized that the lift under the front could be less.For mé, mý use, a lower top speed and a potentially worse mileage are non issues, no loss. Lóve the extra stability and traction from among other aero, the rear wing on a road car.But then you knew already .
