Its crunch time to get ready for the wind tunnel with this car. I think we have 38 runs planned? But anyway, like all my wind tunnel stuff, I'll post the video when we go. If you want to get caught up on previous wind tunnel stuff, heres the link. While getting parts on the car I thought this side by side was pretty cool. All our CFD was done by JKF Aero, better known as Kyle.Engineers on youtube, who worked at Mercedes F1 for a few years. We will be getting baseline runs on the car with the factory GT350R aero, and then working through our list testing all sorts of parts and setups. We will only be doing our single element wings this trip since we will only be testing our "small" splitter option at the moment.

I may have missed it, but are you designing these pieces around a class specific rule set?
Yes. We had some criteria during the design phase that centered around NASA's American Iron rules, which would also fit in GTA's Street class and GridLifes Street Mod classes, and we also had stuff to fit in the much more broad NASA's ST class rules as well. Since we make all the parts in house, we can customize stuff to an extent to fit in other classes as well.
