If anyone's attending, stop by Deltawing and say Hello.

How was it? Is the DeltaWing as crazy in person as it looks on screen?

Sorry, just saw the reply.

The Deltawing is the most logical, physics driven car on the grid. (This from someone who laughed at the original idea. I had the DUH moment and realized how it was going to be fast much later in the game.) It does mess with your head watching it, because the pointy shape makes it look sideways through every turn. And it does show how crazy hard it is to build any sort of 500kg car that will last 24 hours and protect the driver in a crash. It will be down in Sebring and Daytona for the United Sportscar performance balance test this month.
