More Downforce for the K24 Civic

3 Απρ 2021

In the last episode, we put on some drag reducing, body widening parts. In this episode, we're going to make better use of those parts and add MORE DOWNFORCE. I'm maximizing the rulebook for my time attack class to produce as much downforce as possible on my little civic.

  • @10:30 carbon fiber is not brittle. The principal stresses in tension are greater than in compression. CF is not a ceramic, CF is material that peels, crack and debond easier on the direction perpendicular to the fiber.

  • You’re gonna need a flat floor with Venturi tunnel and a diffuser. Then seal the pressure with movable ceramic side skirts. Aero is complicated and can’t be done piecemeal. This is how “ground effect” was done 8n formula one in the good ol days

  • Very good and simple aero package. The only thing I'd add is actually tape where the air dam meets the splitter. If there is even the smallest of gaps there the air flows thru it and lowers the pressure slightly over the splitter (also added drag). If you need more rear downforce but just a bit, not a big chunk, look into putting bigger endplates on your wing and a gurney flap, it'll make a noticeable different for very little money.
