I have a car for which increasing front downforce seems to cause more understeer. I think I’m reading the graph correctly, that yaw rate exclusively decreases with the addition of more front downforce. I can’t tell if the yellow line’s axises are swapped or what.
Not the most common type of caliper, but there are actually fixed two piston calipers, with the two pistons opposing each other. A number of lotuses use them, and IIRC BMW uses them on the rear of the M4.
This is a surprisingly common misconception about tires, but having the tiny rubber band sidewall isn’t the best for absolute traction. Look at how much sidewall Time Attack cars have. I can’t tell if the game knows this for sure, tbh.
Oh cool now I can do a 1+2 seating arrangement, just like a Mclaren F1… Wait this is a front engined car, what is that driving position?
Speaking of which, would it make any sense to have a +1 seating option? I think there was a version of the Mercedes SL that had 2+1 seating with the rear seat sideways.
While it’s a definite comfort penalty, it’s my understanding that you actually want the front suspension frequency to be higher than the rear for peak track performance.
It seems a little odd to me that I can’t have VVL and non VVL engines in the same family. It’s not super common, but there have even been engines in the same family that have different number of camshafts, ford made both DOHC and SOHC versions of the 4.6 modular V8.
It also seems like this engine could go further back:
Speaking of which, that’s displaying the wrong intake, that should be the performance intake.
Which also reminds me, is there’s any chance of a front mid engine/rear transaxle combination?
What is semi space frame? Is this the Lotus style glued aluminum or is a space frame/aluminum honeycomb combo? If it’s the latter, the Vector W8 had that in 91. It also had a three speed automatic, a De Dion rear suspension, and the same switchgear as the F-117.
Kind of a different thing, but what determines the max size of turbo you’re allowed to use? In my attempts to recreate turbo era F1 engines, I’m running into the somewhat unexpected roadblock of not being able to make the compressor large enough. I know this is all getting changed, but it is a bit of an odd one at the moment. On the subject of turbos, I know the Ecoboost V6’s and maybe some other modern turbo engines use differently sized turbos in order to get a sort of twin scroll effect on a V6.
