Newland Associates machine tailfin base
Newland Associates have just completed stage one of our cars horizontal / directional stabilizer (tailfin). This is a HUGE job requiring hundreds of hours of machining time and hundreds of hours of CAD and aero input from our aero guru in the UK, Paul Martin.
Paul Martin worked closely with James Sutherland in Sydney to create this tailfin. The stabilizer uses Calm Aluminium 6000 series material series alloy and has an adjustable horizontal stabilizer to control down force on our rear axle, it also has forward and aft Oz Firecams to capture vision of our runs… Thank you all this will be a work of art.
