Re: This car can go upside down

I've actually talked to guy at work who also happens to have a doctorate in Physics. He says while it is possible to "drive on the ceiling" at 100+ mph, the cars couldn't do it for very long because the force of gravity would eventually overcome the downforce. Maximum time is about 30 seconds. To make happen a longer time, the spoilers would have to be huge.<!-- Signature -->

Dont think of acceleration as "speeding up" because thats not what it is. Acceleration, from a physics standpoint, is a change in velocity, wether it be a POSITIVE change or a NEGATIVE chage.</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

sory to cause an argument here but when i said deceleration i meant it to mean acceleration in a slowing down form. i know the correct term is acceleration even if you decrease your speed, but i was saying that for the lamen people here. <!-- Signature -->

Ferrari king, i see what ur saying.

Re: This car can go upside down

Acceleration is a change in velocity that is true. But lets clear up the difference between speed and velocity. Velocity has a direction associated with it, whether it be forward, backward, left, right , up, down, etc.

Deceleration is used to represent an acceleration in the opposite direction, but it is not in fact a real term.

If deceleration is not the correct term then wut is? Negative acceleration? Reverse acceleration?<!-- Signature -->

acceleration is a value with an associated vector, 'decelerating' means that the vector is facing in the opposite direction.

just use the term 'deceleration' everyone knows what you're talking about.

He's right, you can keep it for long not because acceleration can't continue. Just that all the lubricant in the engine will get into the head and it will overheat.

Re: This car can go upside down

yes, and it could also run out of fuel.

Re: This car can go upside down

Very cool. I'd pay to see it in reality.

Re: This car can go upside down

I dont think the S7 can drive upside down....it won't produce enough downforce most likely and even if it could, it would have to go wau over 100 mph compared to the F1 car.

Re: This car can go upside down

Sometimes the wings can't take the force applied to them. That's why sometimes they break with no apparent reason. For example in 2001 (I think it was in 2001, but IÂm not entirely sure, It was in the last GP of Johnny Herbert) in Japan when Johnny Herbert rear wing broke.

Re: This car can go upside down

I think that was the 2000 Malaysian GP but it was his rear suspension failed. Kimi and Webber had rear wings fall off at the Spanish GP last year.

You'e right, I guess I'm confusing with another race.<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

Well really any failure would be catastrophic if you're upside down.
