Default [ASKED] Engine Cavity and Wheel Cavity Air Management

Hi Tadge
I've read and observed with great interest the air management advancements of the new ZR1. Could you explain the air flow paths through the new front fascia and how they are designed and engineered to move air through those internal locations. Knowing that you have already developed brake ducts to direct air to the brake discs, would directional(asymmetrical) fan style wheels help in the air flow path? I also noticed that the new ZR1 wheels are asymmetrical and therefore look different from driver side to passenger side. Would four location specific wheels be required to optimize the aero through the wheel cavity area or is it not worth the extra cost to the ZR1 budget? Thanks and congratulations on a incredible job on the ZR1. Amazing car !!

Folks -

Just a heads up: Tadge said this answer is going to be a bit delayed. He's dealing with non-work personal issues right now. And the aero team that will help him with this is currently traveling/on the road/etc. So they're a bit busy.

Stay tuned.
