I am on the Formula SAE team at school where you design and build an open wheeled race car powered by a 600 cc motorcycle engine. We compete against other schools in different events including skid pad, autocross, endurance, etc. Last year we were a first year team and had a pretty basic simple design that worked and this year we want to actually be competitive. I am really passionate about the aerospace industry hoping to work with airplanes when I graduate so I have a great desire to do something aero related for the formula car. An aero package consisting of front and rear spoilers isn't really desired by the team because the advantages are negligible when you figure in the disadvantages. They believe at the speeds that are experienced in our racing (30 mph avg maybe up to 60 on straights) just isn't fast enough to justify doing any aero work. I personally wouldn't care if it's advantages were negligible because I just want to do something aero related for the car but convincing the team to spend resources on it is pretty hard. I have been thinking about maybe something other than a wing package like a diffuser and vortex generators or something of the like. The problem is I need to do some calculations in order to prove to the team that it will theoretically benefit the car. My questions are, does anyone think that any kind of aero package, aside from basic drag reduction, would be of benefit with the speeds we experience? If so are there any recommended books that I could look into that would help me in calculating figures that would assist me in convincing the team to pursue an aero package? Thanks for the help!
