Ram Implosion Wing - Wind Tunnel Testing
I want to build the RIW and test it in a subsonic windtunnel, however, I was browing the forums and everybody is calling it a scam. Has this been proven to be a scam? Should I not try testing this? I don't want to waste my resources on a scam. Why do you guys think this would fail, do you have any legitimate reasons?:confused::confused::confused:

I'm serious about this, I will actually test it. I just want some feedback before I do.

Read this first:

I read it, but I don't think it's supposed to create thrust by improving the aerodynamic fluidity. It's supposed to create a vortex in front of the car, thus reducing air pressure, I'm not an expert but I think we have to look at it from another angle.

Or mount it in place of a kammback, where it would work, but be out performed by a sheet of cardboard.

I'm actually going to be building a miniaturized version of this and mounting it on a car model, not an actual car. And then I'm going to test it in a mini wind tunnel. I don't have the resources to build a full scale wind tunnel, and RIW. I'm still a high school student.

Sometimes, logic is incomplete, and people are proven wrong. Sometimes, logic is valid, but testing provides credibility logic sometimes lacks.

Good luck!

Test this in a wind tunnel? I think you risk a runaway reaction that would create a wormhole that would take you off into cloud cuckoo land, where you would meet the inventor of this thing and you could write some testimonials together.
