.... some of you may have seen the progress on this build.

No doubt a lot of time/effort/cash has gone into it, and I quite like/agree/understand bits of it.... but my eyes dont want to listen to that and cant get away from the rear 1/4 view.








The front looks like it'll create a shit load of downforce (and drag).... but the rear I'm not sold on.

Would be interesting to see if any CFD/hand aero calcs were done for this, or if it's just a "That'll work" type approach.

It puts me in mind of the crazy experimental aero stuff of the '60's

Also, I've seen less aero on some of the Pikes Peak monsters

i think this is supposed to be running ~1000hp so it should have the grunt to overcome the straight line drag.

Still.... thats a hell of an angle on the rear wing
