oops double postThis the exact issue I'm up against with my race car (the 99 Mustang with huge amounts of downforce). I think given the combo of VIR and my aero load and associated drag, it would be more "raceable" if I took aero out of that car to increase straight line speed since the only real places to pass are at the end of the straights on that track. But for raw lap time, I will most likely be slower. Now back to the GT350, going from the R aero to my splitter and wing did cost me about 4-5mph top end on the back straight. Some people may think thats crazy but I dove into my data just on this topic. I was able to accelerate a bit sooner so was actually up about 4-5 tenths up to about 115-120mph until the non aero runs overtook towards the end of the straight. I did a delta from corner exit to 120mph and the aero runs were up that 4-5 tenths, and then a delta from 120mph to braking and the non aero runs only made back about 1 tenth. So the total gain was a few tenths quicker for the aero setup from turn11 apex to the brake zone. I'll dive into a bit more in my data video from the weekend.
