Its alot of specific steps and the equipment needed to make a single part is alot. About $300 initially, but after that, you only need to replenish epoxy liquids which are about $30 and raw carbon fiber cloths which are about $40.

Due to labor and time consumption required for just 1 part by hand at home, It wouldnít be practical to mass produce them with my current method as the price would have to be high to cover the costs (Which Is why I hope I wont break it come race day. Which is why I made the part 2.5mm thick in the top and the strakes 1.5mm)

Going through this diffuser making experience definitely gave me insight into how they are actually made in real life and I have more respect for the F1 teams now, lol

Really need to put this thing to more use this summer. I ran it a couple days at the local track of Speedworld Raceway.

Just a heads up, mounting the transponder on the servo is a bad Idea. That tends to cause servo electrical interference. Which can lead to twitch steering when driving instead of a smooth operation. You might want to relocate it

Linear Servo for some fun scale DRS working. Lightweight and doesn't throw off R/L balance. Enjoy.

Interesting. Ive never had that issue on my off-road cars when doing this. I will take that into mind for sure.

Does that bring back memories- My very firs RC car was a Datsun 240 Z with a movable rear wing. What a hand full. I still have the wing but the car is long gone. Just curious what servo is that? Might like to try it again just for fun. It probably will give you too much downforce and the car will spin out in the turns? that's what mine did back in the day. I have since seen someone else try it but that was awhile ago.

Very cool yeah. Just need some holes in the arm on the wing and you can adjust the amount of DRS even more.

Just curious - what's the trigger/control for opening/closing?

It would depend on what radio you're running. Could be mapped to channel mixing in the radio, brake mixing, or just push button.

Thanks. Would be interesting to explore "automatic" operation, based on steering input, lateral acceleration and/or other things...

An actual scale car could have the nose even longer.

I cannot find the video related to this prototype, but with longer car comes also less steering than initially. You'll need a 1/8 track to race lol

I have experimented with one, using a Futaba 4PK. Using channel mixing I've got it opening under full throttle, and it closes as soon as throttle is closed.
Just needs some more time to fine tune open and close points.
