I imagine there is something in the rules about this, although I tried searching and could not find ANY information about it.
Is there anything in the rules that state that steering must be accomplished by the wheels? It would seem to me that the effects of a rudder would be so much more substantial and safe. Either off of the rear wing, or maybe even directional vertical stabilizers that turn in tandem with the front wheels. It would work better in the rain and especially in the event of the tires coming off the pavement or the very least the car becoming un-weighted. I know it would not be as effective at low speeds, but at the most dangerous speeds it could be highly effective.
In a sport that relies so heavily on aerodynamics, I would think this has been discussed or attempted, but I donít find and examples of this. I know that there are lots of rules in regards to aero, especially when it comes to the rear wing.
I know that the use of vertical stabilizers has become quiet popular over the last few years, which has helped the cars stay straight. Any thoughts or sites with info about this?
