I still dont see flow, I see turbulence. it is also gonna give the middle of the chassis some downforce which might allow them to take some away from the wing as well.

For all we know, they might put them on and never see 332 again.

Sometimes its not about increasing the amount of airflow, it may be making the flow less turbulent and more consistent. Getting more consistent flow into the injector hat may help keep the pressure in the blower more consistent and stable. And more stable usually means more predictable. I'm just speculating but it is not always about increased flow.

Did you ever think maybe there just isn't anything to write about? Still in a holding pattern when there is news to report, haven't we punctual about reporting?

Just wanted to report I didn't read anything on any other internet sites today, so pretty sure there is still no update.

I believe there is probably a story as to what's going on or why nothing is going on. Is progress being made towards a decision one way or the other or is it "shelved" ?
