The contact to the company Snipptec was made by an acquaintance from the motor sport area. During the first visit our workshop car (MB Sprinter) was optimized by the company Snipptec. In particular the engine optimization became so clearly noticeable that I as a scientist wanted to learn more about this topic. This prompted us to investigate Snipptec's AERO converters in a wind tunnel as part of a bachelor's thesis. In a "double-blind study" a change in the aerodynamic efficiency of a Formula 3 rear wing could be measured. It was particularly interesting that, depending on the "converter" used, the aerodynamic efficiency could be improved, but also worsened.
