Re: rear diffuser

As mentioned comparing F1 aero to a production car is apples and oranges.

The gap above the diffuser is exposed to the low pressure zone in the cars wake,the front is a high pressure zone so heat produced by the front mounted engine,transmission,exhaust,rear diff can be pushed/sucked out there.

If not it takes some serious effort to keep temps under control,usually adding weight with pumps and rads for transmission and diff.Plus wraps and sheilds for the exhaust.
