The numbers on the left under each test title will correlate to the article I wrote.
How to “read” the data being provided… A little explanation of the fields…
C coefficient (of)
C LF front lift neg # = lift, pos# = down force on front end
C LR rear lift neg # = lift, pos # = down force on rear end
Y M yawl moment pos # = right side down, neg # = left side down
Q down pressure on entire car measured near center of roof
C PM pitch moment pitch of car front to back neg # = front is down pos
# = rear down
C S side force neg # = left side drag pos # = right side drag
C RM = roll moment (Not as applicable to our cars)
Drag HP horse power needed to overcome drag
Drag lb coefficient of drag expressed in lbs for both front and rear
