Here is Dai’s very first pass with the car for the 2019 season at the Long Beach round. The car is very stable and much more predictable and easy to drive than previously. I find it amazing that the pros can just go out and drive so well cold from their first pass on a difficult unforgiving and narrow course like Long Beach.
So the car now has quite a bit of potential and is working very well. The only thing is that the cars base setup is now very different than before so our notes from the past few years are going to be partially worthless! Regardless, this is a great example of how 3D printing can greatly speed the design, production and testing process of parts with complex geometry.
