Comment Of The Day: Downforce Sucks Edition

Dyson, the vacuum manufacturer, wants to be a car manufacturer now! That can only mean one thing...


As user magus-21 pointed out, a car developed by a vacuum company has to suck, which means a lot of downforce:

The car pictured is a Chaparral 2J, which had a seal around the bottom of the car that worked in conjunction with the fans you can see above and the suspension to create a partial vacuum, keeping the grounded for greater manufactured downforce.

Congrats magus-21 on your COTD win. Here’s a song I found by a band apparently called Vacuum. It’s different. Also sorry for misspelling mangos/mangus/magnus so many times.
