Toe Setup in F1

TYRES and SUSPENSION: TOE

After the lessons about Caster and Camber we have the Toe. In racing setup, stability vs reactivity is not the only tradeoff.
Caster Setup in Motorsport

TYRES and SUSPENSION: CASTER

The caster effect on the Motorsport setup. The self-aligning torque and the caster-camber relation in cornering condition.

TYRES and SUSPENSION: CAMBER

What is the camber? The setup of the camber and its influence on vehicle dynamics is introduced. The impact on handling and time attack of camber angle.

Aerodynamics: Lesson 9 - Not only performance: the evolution of trasportation systems

Evolution is no more performance-driven. The developments of trasportation system now takes care of aesthetic rules and ecological principles.
Aerodynamic slipstream

Aerodynamics: Lesson 8 - Tow and wake turbulence

What happens when you follow a car? Tow and wake turbulence. An easy read article inspecting benefits and disadvantages of a slipstream.

Aerodynamics: Lesson 7 - Downforce, the ground effect introduction

The aerodynamic forces acting on a wing. Downforce and Ground Effect. The flat bottom of a F1-like car and the risk of take-off.
Drag coefficient

Aerodynamics: Lesson 6 - The shape is a factor for drag

Pressure drag. The impact of the shape of a body on aerodynamic drag (pressure drag). The limit speed for a free falling object.
Rally Cars 70-80's

Aerodynamics: Lesson 5 - Aerotech evolution in Rally Grand Prix

The technical evolution of Rally Cars. Lancia, Audio Sport, Abarth 131are only few of the prestigious brand taking part to the old-style GP.
