Aero Updates

After a few long nights of solving and troubleshooting, Paul was finally able to complete the splitter design for Team NLS/Pure Precision’s GTI.

We also have a Single Element Wing Version 2 ready for order.  The wing utilizes a pre-preg carbon skin, with a rod and spar core, to make it highly modular.  The wing span can be up to 72″ and mounting points can be located as desired.

 

New Partnership

Now that the paperwork has been finalized, we are happy to announce Hancha has partnered up with Team NLS for the One Lap of America.

NSFW is running a Mk. V VW GTI.  The car makes about 500 whp, with a full sequential gearbox.  For Team NLS, Paul will be doing CFD analysis of their rear wing’s effectiveness as well as designing a front splitter to tune the aero balance.  Paul has started cleaning up the solid model from a model of the OEM car.
