Looks like the winglets are officially called bumper canards.
LS110 said:I am consider adding canards to counter my wing. In high speed turns I am experiencing understeer. It has been a while since you made this post. Were you able to notice any effect? I am considering buying the APR version that Rick mentioned. Those kits come with 2 canards per side, 4 total.
ArizonaGT said:Before you spend any money, you might try taking a little wing out of it first. Or lower the front of the car a little.
Or that.Grant 302 said:Or maybe just lower the splitter with spacers and longer hardware.
NFSBOSS said:Or that.
John and I have been discussing this and have investigated making spacers since CVR. I believe Steve at Blowfish Racing might also be looking into this. Here's a good photo of one that belongs to another member.
Keep me informed on how much the spacer and new hardware is going to cost--I'd be interested if the price is right.
As the OP you can change the subject in the first post and it will hold for all new posts.LS110 said:Lots of good input. One being that the canards work with opposing pressures. The second being to adjust my wing which have have done by 1/2 degree and I am planning to reduce it another 1/2 degree to. And the other suggestion is to lower the air splitter. I just started a new thread on the topic of "Lowering the Air Splitter" as the title of this one does not seem to match and I am hoping there is a lot more discussion on that. Please look for this thread.
How does high pressure on top counter low pressure underneath? Sounds like they are doing the same thing to me.Grant 302 said:Personally, I think canards are somewhat counter to the effects of a splitter. Splitter has a high pressure zone on top and the canard creates a low pressure zone underneath it...

Grant 302 said:Think Bi-plane. I can't think of a reason why a modern airplane would use this in an efficient design. Both creating lift in the same manner, but needing to be far enough apart to not interfere with each other's pressure effects. If the wings were too close, they just wouldn't work.
The splitter and canard combination don't really work the same way as bi-plane wings, but I am pointing out how the underside effect of the canard somewhat negatively impacts the function of the splitter. Which, by the way, despite it's name does not literally 'split' the air.
