X1? Future of F1?
« on: Feb 10, 2011, 03:10 pm »

What's the word on the street out there??  Is the X1 an ACTUAL prototype of a real car that's in development?  I don't know bout you guys, but I think that would be amazing!!!  F1 cars rocking it out @ over 400km/h!!!

okay lets get this straight...
The Red Bull X1 is the immagination(by PD) of what the cars in F1 would be like if there were no regulations
In other words..If there were no rules in F1, the cars would be similar to the Red Bull X1

to be honest, all new tracks would have to be constructed.  the vast majority couldn't handle such a car.  all in all it would be too expensive of a transition.  I actually enjoy F1 the way it is, but preferred it about 5 years ago and really loved it about 20 years ago.

X1 would be the end of F1 as all the drivers would die.

If Bernie gets his way, Formula 1 cars of the future will all have the mechanics of a 950cc Fiesta  :roll:

Not to mention the fact that the X2010 produces such amazing G-force that the human body wouldn't be able to take it....

Human tolerances depend on the magnitude of g-force, the length of time it is applied, the direction it acts, the location of application, and the posture of the body.

1) Vertical axis g-force:
a) positive: untrained: 5 g; trained, with special suit: 9 g
b) negative (drive blood to the head): - 3 g
c) instantaneous: 40 g
d) deadly: 100 g (record: 179 g)

2) Horizontal axis g-force
The human body is considerably more able to survive g-forces that are perpendicular to the spine.
Untrained humans:
a) pushing the body backwards: 17 g
b) pushing the body forwards: 12 g


3) Strongest g-forces survived by humans
Voluntarily: Colonel John Stapp in 1954 sustained 46.2 g in a rocket sled, while conducting research on the effects of human deceleration.
Involuntarily: Formula One racing car driver David Purley survived an estimated 179.8 g in 1977 when he decelerated from 173 km·h?1 (108 mph) to 0 in a distance of 66 cm (26 inches) after his throttle got stuck wide open and he hit a wall."

Somebody knows how much G-force the X1 provides us??

Initially the concept of the X2010 was based on a low air resistance, single seater covered wheel prototype, a wing car powered by a forced induction engine producing 1479 HP, aiming to achieve a top speed of over 249 mph and a maximum lateral G-force of 6G. But upon seeing the machine's concept and design model, Adrian Newey proposed the addition of "fan car" technology (simliar with case of Brabham BT46B, a long-time dream held as a racing designer.

The benefit of a fan car is that it forces air out from underneath the car, which lowers the air pressure under the car's floor. This has the effect of sucking the car towards the ground surface, creating a huge amount of downforce for the car, thus allowing it to generate constant downforce regardless of the car's current speed, allowing it to maintain a high cornering speed in low speed corners.

After the evaluation of the technology going into the car, the X2010 was redesigned incorporating refinement advice from Adrian Newey. With its low air resistance achieved through its characteristic smooth glass canopy and full cowling over the tires, and the downforce gained from the low speed range using the fans as well as in the high speed range through the front and rear wings and the rear diffuser, the car ultimately achieved a maximum speed of 500km/h, a weight of 545kg, and a maximum lateral G force exceeding 8G. This spec is virtually at the very limit of what a normal human body can withstand.

I know I have should have googled the information ... :P
