Monash Motorsport FSAE M11 - First Flight
The first drive of Monash Motorsport's 2011 car with WINGS. The track was quite bumpy, and the balance was quite off at the start of the day, but the car got progressively quicker as we tuned out some of the issues. Some interesting footage of the car at 0.5x speed as the camera was filming at 60fps compared to the rest which is at 1.0x speed 30fps.
Larger radius: 10m
Smaller radius: 5m
Slalom was a 7m slalom (except the final GoPro footage which was a 6m slalom)
Max speed: 75kph
Min speed: 30kph
Average speed: 45kph
Speed through slaloms is roughly 5-8kph faster through the 7m slaloms with wings, compared to no wings.

Jezebel crash at Mt Cotton
Second run for the day, managed to crash after crossing the finish line - I was going pretty easy because of the wet, just obviously not easy enough. Doing about 80 kph at this point on the track - the front bumper took most it, but the impact has also bent the front nose across about 2 inches forward of the tank. Guess I have some serious panel beating to do !!!
