F1 Mareli (collaborative effort) by Marian87 F1 Mareli (collaborative effort) by Marian87
This is a f1 car I did with :iconely862me: about a year back for a competition.  It was an aerodynamics competition, They rated our models in a special software how fast the car would be around a track.I Don't really remember many details.I think we were second to last in one of the tests, we may have been dead last :P, Actually the model needed some improvement to be properly analyzed by the software and we didn't understand the exact needs and didn't try again.  www.khamsinvirtualracecarchall…
We had 2 somewhat different versions as we had slightly different ideas as what would work aerodynamically,though I think this is the 1st we made.

Eventhough you did not win the competition, this is still a beautiful piece of art. You nailed the look of the materials. Very lifelike.

I think, it could be the fact that some parts of the model that are parallel to the driving direction are way too thick.
Other parts, like that yellow thing from the center to the back seem not to have any positive aerodynamic influence.
The side mirrors are pressing the air flow to strong to the sides. Watching from the front, the wheel suspension have rectangular profiles, and that is an issue.
The yellow parts on the front wing should describe a steeper curve to lead the air more precise to the airflow around the tires.
Of course, this is only nitpicking. But things sum up, and f1 is about nitpicking. :)

besides that, good work and would like to see more in the future.

To be honest, we didn't have much knowledge concerning aerodynamics so we just made something that looked cool :p
Thanks, glad you like it.

Thanks. Modeling it wasn't that hard, but keeping in mind aerodynamics was.

Especially dig the rear view mirrors (if that's what it is...).

Yup, that's what they are. :D  Ely was behind making those.
