I asked on the ACC forum and didn't get an answer yet.

First, lower height doesn't always mean best efficiency for split and diffuser and I read fastest laps are achieved with lowest setting anyway.

Furthermore, Blancpain has specific mandatory rules in the BOP with mandatory minimum height for each car/track combo, which are not in play at least for now.

Am I missing something?

these cars drive very high to the ground, 55mm front is quite a bit and the rear is even higher. stalling in real life would occur at much lower ride heigth. if you are comparing to ac1, the ride heigth were cars started to stall was way to high imo.

About blancpain rules yes they use much different numbers for the ride heigth rules, for example lambo rear minimum ride heigth says 128mm while in ac you can put it to 54mm.
Probably they are measuring the cars ride heigth at a different place than in real life. that might be a reason.

I'd prefer to see the real life measurements though.

Indeed, using a different standard doesn't help if Kunos decides to apply the real BoP.

Guess we have to wait for motec or alternative plugin to check areo performance.
