Future is obviously upset. He has been given a three day "cooling off" period for unsavory language and insults. I hope he will come back in better humor.

You caught those inflammatory remarks before they turned into a real FOREST FIRE

Hans's wing looks like my wing, which is the Kokeln wing (same wing, same mounting hardware).

And... this is the wing to have....

No 944 or 968 anything wing will produce the level of downforce that this wing produces.

In a 944, any wing that produces significant downoforce should transfer its downforce to the frame rails.

I'm only pissed that I didn't get to see them. I'm a bit confused how I got tossed into his diatribe. We've always been friends. Apparently I'm stealing or conspiring or God knows what. If so, then somebody had better send me my cut of the action!
I'll have to change my avatar.

"wickerbill" or better known as a "Gurney Flap". It is named after its designer, racing icon Dan Gurney, who invented it in 1971.

What happened here?? all of a sudden there's 1Ż page of OT. Where's future's comments than caused the ban? Are they deleted because I cannot see any comments causing a ban.
This is an interesting topic so let's stay on point

I'm kinda hoping that if my diffuser works well enough it will reduce my need for a large wing ( I wouldn't use one anyway since it's a street car).

Probably wishful thinking though. Does anyone know what the net downforce of a 951 is in stock trim? I'm thinking it's a negative number.

I'm no authority... but I seem to recall that it was a zero lift, zero downforce goal. And from memory, I seem to think that the number was just that.

If we assume that the wing is mounted to the frame rails, what do you base your comment that no other wing will produce the same level of downforce?

IMHO a more rearmounted wing would produce a higher level of downforce, also there are other wing designs that are more effective than the straight wing plane.

I would think these 2 designs produce more downforce than the regular Kokeln wing, and even more so if combined with a "banan style" wing, like the Oreca Viper.
