Hey folks, welcome to a fun fan fiction. We are your host. I am a Kash and I'm sorry we come to you mid season for for a different kind of a banter. What are going to listen to over the next week are going to be two drops of five libraries that I released in each section. So you're going to see you can listen to five libraries episode once and then another five at the end of the at the end of the week. Getting into it, before we talk about this season and the libraries that have popped up. Sarun, how do the cars look to you in gender? Man, I was a bit skeptical looking at the model car that, you know, Formula One had made back back last year. Sometimes I yeah, because it looked very toysh right for some reason, like especially the especially the car was not to scale as well. It was a little smaller...

...as well. But Man, these cars brew me away. The really low so awesome, right. Yeah, if I is tried this year's and years over again, where they've tried to showcase a car that's going to come next year which is going to be such a good racing car, and then all of these zero engineers and takey's make it more suited for like fast and Dur whateverever whatever, and just loses the chant. But Tsu're on point. Yeah, this here are. It looks so slick and it's like, Oh, this is what a race car should be. You remember, right, like that infamous Dick knows that. I don't know who had come up with, but yeah, I mean that's what happens, right like whenever these these regulations are made, all these engineers just set and try to poke holes in them and find those loopholes again, those advantages, and I'm very honestly, I'm not entirely convinced that these are the cars which are going to be there on...

...the first race. But we'll see in due time. Who comes up with some real weird oddities, true, some good ones that at least ad out for me. Were, you know, your friend doing is limited to for full span elements only. You can't think her around. There much that we've seen in the past. You're there's some regulations coming in for, you know, the Bendy Wings nonsense that we've seen throughout the season last year. Yeah, powerful rare wing which retains that the ares for slup stream. Yeah, and the most important thing a lot better erro in general Rad yeah, is you? I mean not, since the Arrow in general is simplified. The water SAS which used to be created used to, you know, create a lot of issues for the card falling and I'm hoping that this really improves racing. Yeah, and that's what tolut's intended for. So, yeah, that's...

...rute true. Tighter make bag. That's the interesting part, right, like most of these teams at least who, at least so far, release their libraries. As of this recording, there's there's five that have released. We wait for Williams today. But the intent being made. Bag becomes tighter every team, so far as saying we're going to rule the mid bag. Now there can only be one ruler on the mid bag. So and to that point, even has bat will come to each team. N But that's going to be interesting. Fair point. Fair point. Yeah, are right. What else stands out for you? I think another thing which really stunted out is the wheels. I mean eighteen nch wheels. Looks Awesome. Man. I was skeptical how it would look, but those thick tires look I mean not thick tires or the thick rims look really good. What's up with that actually, like is this is this a stock or a just digitalization or a concept phase where they are also covering the rims, or is it going to be like a flat disc ring so that you can't even see the brakes?...

What's happening there? I think so. My understanding is basically the covers on the rims are two fold, like the use of them is two fold. One is that it improves the Arrow because like less sort of air is interacting with the spokes of the wheel and it's not getting disturbed anymore. You know, again going back to not creating the those what ices which create the is drag in the car behind. So I think it's in that foot as well as if you've noticed, like a lot of these rooms have, like, e. These strips kind of up in there, and it's rumored that they were testing this some time back with McLaren. I think they arguing test is even during the season sometime, and I guess they want to just play some information. They're starting next year something in that. That's that's what I would interesting. Yeah, if they do end up doing that, then I'd be curious on how break cooling works, because if the outers are short, what's...

...the air and take for for break cooling. The other interesting part, for me at least, is like there's there's a concept of having big tunnels under the car, which ends up creating like lots or down force. This time I think that's going to certain tandem with some of the suspension regulations that have come in place, which came which you can't use to push your car a bit more down. So yeah, it's going to be interesting, man, it's going to be a right it's interesting all around. I mean rightly, as you said, about the the ero changing and especially the ground effect, right like. That's that's what it's all about this time and earlier like, I think if one had tried to bring a ground effect long ago, if I remember, but I think back then, like the cars weren't the bodies of the cars were in as strong. I like the materials that are used currently carbon fiber, which is really strong. So earlier parent have the right...

...material. So a lot of times what used to happen is that if you would like lose even like one Qurting, you are calf would be super unstated. So basically, I think now it's the right time where they can do use these methods to improve down for us without, you know, disturbing the air much. But the car behind well, all in all, a slicker looking car, a faster car which, on paper and now with some of the designs are does feel like is going to tighter the the MIDPAG and and bring the cars closer. But it could also end up meaning that. I think David could her or called Rusta said that while the first few races might seem things are closed enough, towards the end of the season will again see like two or three teams emerging out of out of nowhere or just being the way they are. All in all, it's going to be an interesting season. Stay tuned for some more bites coming your way with individual libraries that we...

...poke into. Thanks books the bike.
