National Staff Greg G. Posted March 28, 2019 National Staff Share Posted March 28, 2019 Dan, Here a the most basic and common example of a hood air dam. Here is a roof air dam: Here is a front wing off a hood: Here are a few more front wings/spoilers, etc. The point being, that we want aero to be simple in ST4-6. We don't want our competitors to need wind tunnel testing to be competitive. We don't want them to have to fabricate some crazy "hood vent" that functions as some type of air dam or airfoil, etc. However, this discussion has proven the point that regardless of our best intentions to keep the rules to common sense with the function of permitted modifications listed (when they are not unlimited), that we will need to forever keep expanding the rules with specification after specification. If I was to write a truly 100% specified rule for just this hood vent modification, it could literally be a paragraph long--multiply that by all of the rules, and end up with 100 pages of nothing anyone wants to read. But, we will put some type of revision on this in the upcoming revision of the ST Rules. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
