Front Wings

Discussion in 'F1 2010 - The Game' started by Lee_95, Aug 11, 2011.

  1. What happens if I set the wings to 1:11 etc. Will it make the car harder to control or is there no difference ??

  2. Depends on the type of track your on. I would suggest giving it a try and see how it feels, do some tests in time trial. Or look up the setup section on the forum, to look up setups for different tracks.
  3. I'm not an expert, but at 1:11 you will have no grip on front wheels and best grip on rear. It's good for speed, but not good when you want to push hard, because you don't have the best grip in corners.

    In reality a 11/1 wing should be undrivable no matter where the balance is on the car a 1/11 wing will be really good slight bends but as soon as you get to high speed I suspect your gonna end up understeering, not to mention with a 11 rear wing your acceleration and top speed will be dreadful.

    I always opt to run slighty more front wing than rear wing but not by crazy differences. Having a 1:11 setup just sounds like a recipe for huge understeer (Ploughing on through the corner...vauxhall vectra ect...).

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    My understanding is:
    In real world physics most downforce is generated by the rear wing##. (When you think about it the engine, drive wheels most weight etc are at the back so this is where most force is delivered to the track. I suppose thats why rear wheels/tyres are bigger.)
    Then the front wing is used as a balancing device to ensure it is roughly matched.
    Too little front wing-understeer, too much-oversteer. The impact is greater the higher the speed corner as aero grip influence takes hold. In slow corners mechanical grip has more impact.
    HOWEVER In the game the physics model missed this ##fact. So its possible to most often use much more front than rear.
    Setups are used with anything from 3/0 to 11/0.
    There would be no point in using 0/11 as the game missed the fact you need rear wing so it wont help you much at all.
  7. I have run 11/1 wings quite often recently and have found those setups to be the fastest for me so far. Of course when I say fast that is fast for me which may not be fast for most others ;)
  8. Agreed
