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.
Idiots of NASCAR: Vol. 95 Cars Reenactments
The 2006 Disney/Pixar film remade with NR2003.
If you're wondering how I got the eyes on the cars, it was a windshield
add-on file that you put in your mod folder. I included a blue version in
the download below. In order to edit it however, you'll need a program
called WinMip2. Here is a lit of the tracks I used: Bristol Night,
Talladega 2010, Thornton, DRC_WCR, Jackass Speedway, Cornfield Raceway,
Michigan, California, and Daytona 2011. This was probably the single most
time consuming video I've ever ever made! But since I'm sick I had lots of
time on my hands. Enjoy!
