Hi guys,

looking for a clue to the current June 2018 MFH riddle and thinking of a 312T-series rear wing as a way
to dial in the period I came across this site and their report on the 312T aero design. The base for this
is a computer game model (possibly Assetto Corsa) they reworked somewhat and fed through a number
of simulations. It's interesting to see how the air flows across the car and how and where opportunities
were missed for better aero (with today's tech available).

They also have other articles on suspension, engines and some other stuff. Quite interesting. I wish they
would do something similar with other racing cars of the past (312 from '67, GT40, 917, ...).
