Interesting pic....



I'm sure its not just an optical illusion... but that endplate is deflecting ~50mm inwards!

They are foam core carbon composite and fairly rigid. Flat mounted to ends of both wing chords. I'm surprised to see so much....

Has anyone noticed this from the pit wall, or following the cars?

One of my end plates 'exploded' and separated a while back on the main straight in reverse direction @ Knockhill, but I just put that down to possible construction flaws.

Looks like we'll need to upgrade the core thickness to stop them flexing :/ Currently 3-4mm mm

I'm not wanting to run them smaller, if anything new ones would be deeper Very Happy

Pretty mad that! I wonder if they are constantly bent in under load, or are they flapping about..? I think that's another go pro angle for you to try out Wink
