  6. Part of it was a setup problem, part was the track, and part was the aero of LMP-GTP design. First the rear springs were set too soft, second, the car went over a very slight hump, third the GTP design creates more lift with the closed cockpit than open cars and also the closed cockpit actually reconnects the airflow that hits the front to the air flow hitting the back wing. So this is how i think it happened. The car hit a small hump, the front diffuser stalled and lost downforce. But the rear wing kept downforce and pushed the back end of the car down. So the rear wing kept pressing down on the back tires, which pushed the front up. Then the front of the car blocked the rear wing of the car from the air and the rear lost its downforce. So now none of the tires had downforce and the flat bottom of the car deflected more air under the car then over and the car lifted into the air.
     
  7. It also caught a lot of air from the Toyota GT1 in front of it... <!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Its still an awesome machine. I'd love to own the surviving one if it's still around. Won't happen though.
