    That is gorgeous!
     
  2. Does anyone happen to know if the lack of a diffuser on the GT3 DBRS9 (and possibly the Gallardo--can't tell for sure from photos) is due to FIA regulation or manufacturer choice? It seems to be the only car without one, and the GT1 class car in the same family has one. I know in the past that FIA restricted wing size on some cars to limit downforce, but I was not aware of them doing it with diffusers. The rulings information on the GT3 website is pretty sparse and seems to mostly be dealing with driver classification.

    Watching some videos on the interweb lately about GT3 and I was wondering the exact same thing. Did you find an answer?
     
  4. Nope, could never find any information on it. Maybe I can email Aston about it :)

    Well, looking at photo's from both cars you can clearly see that there is some sort of regulation of the airflow at the rear of both cars. I wouldn't call it diffusers like in other designs but there is something there...

  6. I got bored and emailed Aston, who said that the DBRS9 was designed without a diffuser. That first photo is actually the new Vantage, slightly different. Good find on those though, much clearer than what I was looking at.
     
  7. Lambo is pretty old aswell so i guess it´s the same for them too.
