Ask anyone who’s ever lived for 100-octane fuel, strapped in a five-point harness, put up with helmet hair and they’ll bend your ear about the never-ending quest to lower their lap times. Dropping their best times by a whole second, or even the slightest fraction, could secure bragging rights for the weekend and make for a decent night’s sleep. And you won’t believe what these folks will do to their rides in order chase down these valuable seconds. They’ll tweak under the hood to goose any extra horsepower. They’ll reduce unsprung weight. They’ll lose sprung weight. They’ll futz with the tires and the suspension combos. They might even pony up for driving school to gain a tip or two from trained instructors.
A racer is only bound by his imagination and wallet. But when it comes to aerodynamics, you can almost hear the effort of racing progress come to a screeching halt. Aerodynamics has a reputation of mystifying most car guys, even seasoned hot-shoes. Most drivers will blindly go with an existing set up, ever fearful of messing with the adjustments. Some companies will sell an aerodynamic package based on aesthetics. But what if you could tune your car with aerodynamics designed by an honest-to-goodness M.I.T.-trained aerodynamacist? What if you found a package that even the pinnacle of formula racing is finally embracing? What if a set-up specced for your particular car could be dialed in to never increase drag? What if you merely could install an aerodynamic set-up and immediately challenge your best lap time?
