Thanks, I'll remember to give the body a once over before I spray the next color. My fault for not even checking after I sprayed the black.

I love the innovation behind that car! I think they only ran it in practice then it was banned. Are you making some ground effect tunnels too?

If I remember correctly, the cars suspension was stiff and the side pods were suspended from the chassis. In theory would allow the side pod to be lower and have more down force. But vibration of the chassis from the rough track surface would cause the side pods to "porpoise" causing varying levels of down force; thus unstable. "If a little is good; more must be better"

Actually it was an attempt to separate the driver from the solid "suspension" used to maintain the ride height. The cars got so stiff that the drivers could not cope with the ride. By having in effect two separate chassis, one for the driver, that was softly sprung and pretty much a solidly suspended one for the rest of the car including the aero bits.
