    i estimate the window up for about 0.1~0.3s at windy high speed track WSIR

    clearly there is areo advantage to have window up, otherwise there is no other reason why we only see this happened in TA session and not in practice sessions

    but i don't feel bad at all for pp doing this tho, cos seriously i HATE window down so much, too

    i have seen 4 pp do this in TA sessions and 3 of them are my good friends, i may join them next time, but i will make sure i only roll up the window where no one can see, too bad for pp who have manual windows, good for pp who have 1 touch up and down!

    there really is no need for window down in corners, you aren't WOT any way. so only need to roll up when WOT

    maybe the window down mess up my overall aero during cornering!

    i really don't think window down is necessary!

    i remember there was one time at Spring Mountain that the wind storm was too bad that SV actually allow everyone to roll the window up and also a wet day at WSIR last year SV also allow windows up!

    if they allow windows up in wet and windy storm, why not other situations?

    My stupid driver side window only rolls up 1/2 way by power. I have to pull up the rest of the way manually.

    It's a severed tongue. I designed it based on a character named Philomela from Ovid's metamorphoses. Kind of dark, but I like it!
