You’re talking about the down force of the wings? Is that why you’re driving a wingless car?

+ slicks.
It's my opinion (just an opinion) that you need to work up to wings and slicks...start with a Vee, then Fords, then F2000's, then some big boy car.
I watched a guy at Mosport destroy a brand new F Renault (+$100K brought from California) on his first lap. Had no clue about tires or brakes...having come from racing a sedan.
The garbage bin in the paddock was full of broken carbon bits he sawed off to get it back in the trailer. Lucky he was unhurt.

So how different is it between a radical and a wing car? Why choose one over the other

wing
October 19th, 2014, 04:04pm
Radical is winged. Has major downforce, perhaps more than a Formula Renault, at least that is what the radical guy was telling me.

Radical I think is wider. Its easier to drive maybe. Overall though the Renault is probably faster as it is lighter.

The black thing at the track today was a Stohr? Fairly fast, but not crazy fast. Guess he was just trying it out.

Jethro

One of those has the track record (1:5X)

wing
October 19th, 2014, 10:40pm
First time he drove it. And Mark isn't crazy fast although he got down to 2:12 in his formula Renault. He's about 10 seconds off the max

Anyways his car can most likely run 1:55s. Yeah...

Marks a great guy. He does admit that he has a problem buying racecars tho. He has a couple (2 or 3) entry level winged formula cars (including the redbull car pictured) for sale. He doesn't want to advertise them, but would like to sell them locally. He mentioned around 10K for a couple of them. Great way to get a real fast car.

He offered Robert from Radical Canada $33k USD for his. Robert countered at $38k that was his bottom line he told me. He knows he will sell it in the spring for $45k (he is asking $49k cdn).

So now he is offering me the same. Sorry 33 is too low. I want what I want.

Guy sold his GTR to buy a Radical obviously he is a dentist.

Bill has a radical, catch him on a good day and he will give rides. A lot of the time though he is "tuning" whatever he is doing I'm not sure because it doesn't help.

I got the cash, but hey I still have the car so maybe he will change his mind and I'll keep the car and the cash.
