MASSIVE UPDATE

Firstly, there's been a change of direction.
Mercedes was boring and plain.
AMD decided they didn't want to support this project either, so it was a huge downer on myself, made me feel like the project wasn't good enough.
After some hiatas, i re-designed the wing, and i am now coming back with a vengence.

Introducing, the new Aston Martin Cognizant Racing wing.
I shopped around for about a week looking for the paint to at least be extremely similar to that of the new AM F1 car.
Finally... i found it!!

First thing i need to mention is, the paint changes color based on light and angle. This is thanks to the pearl.





FYI - The edges where the sides meet the wing plates, is covered with tape, this is because i'll be layering in some black paint there. (to match how the wing looks on the current car)

New top plate, with a clear window to view the hardware inside.
New end plates curved for.. erm.. flair i mean downforce!


Anyway.
Special thanks to my incredible partners at ASUS UK for proving the hardware, much love guys <3
They have provided me with the following

ASUS ROG Strix 3070Ti OC 8GB
ASUS ROG Strix B550-i ITX motherboard.
ASUS ROG Thor 850w power supply
ASUS ROG Ryujin 240mm CPU Cooler

LOTS of work still to do, but this drastic change in direction has given me confidence in the build and confidence in myself.
Still feel down about AMD, but hey, it is what it is. Let's move forward!

Will update this week with photo's of the hardware.
Thanks for looking
Regards
Craig

Update time:

External looks, fins, paintwork and decals are somewhat finished.
I have reached out to AM for a real Aston Martin badge (don't fancy paying over £100 for one)



Where the tape was, i removed that and tested black using electric tape.. didn't like it. Pulled that off and blended the paint to create a nice flush shine. Really makes it look 1 peice.

Cablemod cables are ordered, and they will arrive soon.
Still have lots of images of the hardware to go up.

And finally, i need to figure out how i'm squeezing all this inside the wing.
SOme parts *Cough GPU cough* are bigger than planned (Bare in mind this was being build before the new series of cards came out)

Will update soon
Thanks for looking
Craig

Update:
Spent the majority of lastnight planning how on earth everything will fit inside the nosecone.
Eventually found a solution.
I give you, The Janky Redneck GPU mount
Half in, Half out.
Surprising, it fits, and does a great job.

The black back is hindged at the bottom to allow me to open the wing for access.
WIll be picking up some magnets or a latch today. to make sure it stays closed.


After that it's out to the shed to trim down and make flush
ALl i got so far today
Thanks for looking
Craig

ASUS supplied a 3070Ti for this project, however it seems we are swapping this for the Strix 3080.
Here's some images of this beautiful card!






I plan to use the light bar on the GPU and have that flash red with the hash tag #WERACEASONE
The rear end of an F! car flashes red when the batteries are charging and raising awreness to racism and inequality in every sport is important.

Will have more updates soon.
Have some big news to come too. (Just finalizing the details)

Are you planning to mod the GPU then? Since as far as I’m aware, it’s not possible to change the lighting on the card in such a way. Atleast I’ve not been able to find it on my 3080 Strix.

No, i'll laser out the lettering on black vinyl, and then fit that to the bar that lights up. Using armory crate, you can set the lights to whatever you want.
