    One question at what speed are you molding
    That is a very interesting flow model. Some of the things i suspected are confirmed if the model is correct. The side air scoops do not work and the rear spoiler is in dead air

    One thing to note... I doubt the model I used accounts for flow through vents and ducts... making a model that does that is beyond my current understanding of modeling tools

    I think the cad-cam drawing is, hmm, at very low resolution.
    I dont trust/believe the rear half of the car has such a uniform pressure map

    I would expect to see SOME pressure differences on the outer 25% of the rear wing
    I would expect to see SOME pressure differences in the valley behind the rear window

    Having OCD, and spending too much time on the web, I see pieces of a puzzle that could come together.

    Willie just printed a model of the Rossion.
    If we fabricated a water tank, pump, wire and a battery

    or we could just believe the work that has been done and say
    "the splitter on a Noble is more of a clam protector than a functional aero device"
    Have Willie make an ABS plastic splitter and move on the the next small shinny object we see

    if you are going to flow test them, you will need to drill some holes from the front vents to the inner fender well.

    then you can print up some prototype splitters, test. new splitter, test.
    Sort of wish you were in Denver, would like to hang out there and watch.

    Start around the 13 min mark, interesting on how they used the front splitter and vortex generator to pull the car down https://youtu.be/Cpl-whGetIw

    Yeah I get the feeling this model was meant more for use in games and such, less for use in engineering. I'm sure every bit of the car is mapped out already... it would be nice to get those files from Rossion, or if they go under they should release them to the community.
