  • Common misconception: raindrops are raindrop shaped while falling. They are more like a jellyfish without tentacles, or a hamburger bun. Also, driving on mars would suck. No air = no downforce and also no oxygen for combustion

  • Who came with the idea first? Tatra with T77 or Chrysler with Airflow? They both were designed using a wind tunnel, they both were released in the same year and the distance between them was so far from each other (to get nonpublic news from the Czech Republic to the USA in the 1930s isn't exactly an easy task if you ask me). Can't figure that out

  • 12:56 I hate how people act like Brabham were lying about it cooling the engine, if they did then they wouldn’t have been able to race, it would’ve been a movable aero piece and there for illegal, so they tried to make it 51% cooling and 49% ground effect, which actually ended up as a 55-45 split, and they gladly invited to FIA to their headquarters and allowed them to check the numbers, that’s why it was allowed to race, it DID cool the engine Plus the FIA was going to ban it the next season, but the president of Brabham Bernie Ecclestone pulled the car out to stop the other teams from getting too angry at his team
