At last – a book that shows you how to test the aerodynamics of your road or track car. Measure downforce, lift and drag – all with low cost and easily obtained equipment. See airflow behaviour, measure aerodynamic pressures causing lift and drag, and measure airflow speed – even under the car. No more guessing, using rules of thumb or just copying what others have done. Develop undertrays and diffusers that work, set wing angles to give the right results, and optimise drag. Practical, down to earth and low in cost, the techniques covered in this book will revolutionize how you modify the aero of your road or track car. This is the second edition – twice as large as the first edition, with many more examples and new chapters.

Wind tunnelWind tunnel

Measure pressures

Directly measure aerodynamic pressures to see the effects of different spoilers, improve the flow through intercoolers and oil coolers. Even see which panels are creating lift and downforce!

Measure flow patterns

Use tuft testing to see where there is attached and separated flow. Optimise the shape of rear vision mirrors for low drag and noise, and ensure that flow is attached to rear diffusers.

Measure lift and downforce

Directly measure aerodynamic lift and downforce, cheaply and accurately. Optimise wing angles and undertray /diffuser designs.

And do it all without a wind tunnel!

Measure changes in drag, lift, downforce and airflow patterns – all without a wind tunnel. Stop guessing in aerodynamics and actually measure what is happening.
