Re: Active Aero

At higher speeds the front and rear spoilers lift up so that there is a bit more down force.

Re: Active Aero

Re: Active Aero

actually you would be surprised...some russian guy put his vr4 in a wind tunnel and got some good results

not that we need this to keep planted on the road and not lift off or anything...but it does have some effect

Re: Active Aero

It's not that the spoiler does -.07, that isn't important...it's that paired with the front airdam, they make the entire car have an overall aerodynamic lift of zero. The coefficients vary with speed, but the overall lift always remains 0.

Re: Active Aero

Nope, you read that wrong. The drag changed by 0, the lift has deffinatly changed.
