GT3 Nose and Side Skirt mod & Aerodynamics

Recommended Posts

Loren,

I'm considering a GT3 nose and side skirt mod to my 2002 C2 Coupe. I really don't care much for the Aero package rear fin (just a personal preference), but I'm concerned that just changing the nose will negatively impact the aerodynamics. What do you think?

Well, I am not a physicist but the downforce on a car front to rear always must be proportioned. Otherwise, adding more downforce in one area (i.e. front) will cause the rear to lift sooner -- rather than later. If you increase the downforce on one end of the car you need to do something at the other end also. Most folks agree that downforce just starts to work at 60 MPH but by 100 MPH it become very important. In the past Porsche published the effects of their wings and spoilers so you could play matching games... but now it seems for legal reasons (or ??) they don't. So you have to guess how difference a GT3 front spoiler is from the standard on.

IMHO... of course.
