Whilst lecturing at Loughborough University in 1989 I discovered this 10th scale wooden model under a table. It looked like Malcolm Sayer's XJ13 wind tunnel model that was tested at the University in the early 60s. We fired up the old windtunnel and created this "period" picture . . .

ground effect does work - our most extreme diffuser proposals sucked the belt off the rollers and brought the windtunnel to a grinding halt. The same thing happened during the scale model development of Team Lotus' Type 78. Today's Formula One teams use a steel belt .

In the 1980s I worked for a computer hardware manufacturer. On Friday afternoons—on company time—we divided into 3 teams and raced the company's 1/10th scale cars in the back parking lot. Yay, team-building.

The car I did the paint and aero on (basically 4 skirted wheels and massive diffuser) would, on the back straight, suck dust out of the asphalt parking lot and leave a trail suspended in the air, like it was on a gravel road.
