Active aerodynamics on RX-7 at TWS Lemons race

Feb 11 2012 7hr Lemons race at TWS This is the sickest air brake you have ever seen. It has 2 pneumatic rams that raise a piece of plywood to act as an air brake. It is operated by a valve on the Ebrake. 2 air compressors maintain pressure in the system....and since apparently its too much load to try to run on the RX-7s electrical system there is just a generator bolted to the back that runs on its own fuel constantly while the car is on track. The car also features a smoker grill with the Exhaust passing vertically through it on the back bumper so that you have slow roasted grub by the end of the race! http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d159/TAMUmpower/Chump%20Car/IMG_0665.jpg http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d159/TAMUmpower/Chump%20Car/IMG_0664.jpg http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d159/TAMUmpower/Chump%20Car/IMG_0663.jpg http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d159/TAMUmpower/Chump%20Car/IMG_0667.jpg

Chasing #35 240Z in #996 Spec Piñata at LeMons TWS 02/12/2012
This is the 2nd Spec Piñata appearance for LeMons. First was at ECR in December 2011. TWS was a blast, and I was fortunate enough to find a couple of similarly fast cars both stints I drove. This video is of me chasing down the #35 240Z...which was fun because they were quite a bit faster on the straights.

Look at the breathtaking results in this video. More information on http://www.porsche.com/turbo *Combined fuel consumption in accordance with EU 5: 9.7l /100 km; CO2-emission: 227g/km





Wind Tunnel Test: "43" 1971 Petty Superbird
Gary & Pam Beineke built this race version G-Series Superbird-stable mate to the K&K Daytona-a next generation, 'what-if' tribute to Petty and the '71 NASCAR season that never was. They took the car to Mooresville NC "Race City USA" to test in the A2 Wind Tunnel. Although a full scale version was never built in 1971 Chrysler performed wind tunnel development on a 3/8 scale model until NASCAR made a rule change for the 71 season that would ban the wing cars from competition. Gary Romberg is the technical director at AeroDyn & A2, and also one of the original aerodynamicists that worked on the wing cars back when they were developed at Chrysler. Notes and data from the 3/8 model were donated to the Wing Warriors Car Club and the Beineke's built their car based off data results from those wind tunnel tests in the 70's. Romberg was on hand to see a project he worked on over 40 years ago get built into a full scale version.

Ferrari 458 Speciale - AERODYNAMICS
The 458 Speciale is the latest product of Ferrari's core philosophy of extreme technological innovation and research which, in this instance, has yielded powertrain, aerodynamics and vehicle dynamics advances that transform the already exceptional 458 Italia into a car genuinely worthy of the "Speciale" moniker. The result is a completely new, uncompromising, streamlined sports car concept. Many of the sophisticated solutions being applied for the very first time to an in-range car in the 458 Speciale, including its advanced active aerodynamics, will become a standard feature of all new Ferraris in the future. Flanked in the Maranello marque's range by the multi-award-winning 458 Italia and 458 Spider, the new mid-rear-engined V8 berlinetta was designed to Boost both performance and driving emotion to unprecedented levels, yet simultaneously guarantee smooth, effortless control in all kinds of situations. Having lavished meticulous attention on the power unit that was named "Best Performance Engine" at the International Engine of the Year Awards for two consecutive years, Ferrari has now built its most powerful naturally aspirated V8 ever (605 cv) with an extraordinary specific power output of 135 cv/l , the highest ever achieved by a road-going naturally aspirated engine. Thanks to an equally exceptional weight/power ratio of just 2.13 kg/cv, the 458 Speciale can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.0" (0-200 km/h in 9.1") and also clocked a lap time of just 1'23"5 at the Fiorano Circuit. Aerodynamic requirements guided the work of the Ferrari Styling Centre, which led the project in cooperation with Pininfarina, to sculpt the car's forms to ensure they were more performance-oriented than ever. The most notable features in this sense are the front and rear movable aerodynamics which balance downforce and cut drag, thus helping make the 458 Speciale the most aerodynamically efficient range production car in Ferrari history (E Index of 1.5) The technology used in the vehicle dynamics subsystems which gives the driver instant confidence and control at high speeds, natural power oversteer management and precise response to commands are further advances in an area in which Ferrari is already a well-established leader. One of the most innovative content of the 458 Speciale is the Side Slip angle Control system (SSC) which makes it easier to achieve car control on the limit, thereby greatly improving driving emotions. Thanks to the development of an accurate new algorithm SSC performs instant-to-instant analysis of the car's side slip, comparing it with the target value and then optimising both torque management (via integration with F1-Trac traction control) and torque distribution between the two wheels (via integration with the E-Diff electronic differential). Part and parcel of the car's development included Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tyres which were specifically honed for it in an intensive collaboration programme involving, amongst other factors, numerous track test and simulator sessions. Conceived for the 458 Speciale, they Boost performance over a single lap in the dry as well as improving performance consistency in subsequent laps. They also allow the car to avail of maximum available grip in the wet. The abovementioned technical content has improved the 458 Speciale's single lap time and also delivers repeatability of that performance on subsequent laps that is absolutely unprecedented for a car not designed exclusively for track use. The result is that the 458 Speciale has the fastest response time (0.060 s) and highest lateral acceleration (1.33 g) ever achieved by a car in the Prancing Horse range. The 458 Speciale will receive its public world debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September.

VALTONEN MOTORSPORT Mazda RX 7 at Time Attack in 2010. The development with the car went from power to aerodynamics and suspension. There is still to do, but beside other joys, the unlimited class victory at Botniaring with a class trackrecord and success at Gatebil Mantorp showed us that the way is right. Thank you for watching
