This is a really dumb question, but what is the difference between Cd (drag coefficient) and g's (downforce). All i know is one number is usually around .30 and the other around .8

:confused: :confused:

Drag is the resistance to airflow over/around an object. G-force is lateral force when cornering. At least as a very basic description.
