Best Answer

Formula 1 cars do not defy gravity; they are actually designed to aid its effect by the use of aerodynamics to push the car harder onto the surface. You may be referring to the fact that it is possible for a Formula 1 to drive on the roof of a tunnel, such is the force created by the wings at high speed.

G forces are most prevelant. The downforce on the car is generated by wings usually. the unsprung weight is outside of the springs(obviously), the sprung weight is better for cornering ability of the car.

How do you find the center of gravity of a 3D car?

With difficulty. Hang the car up by one corner by a cable and hook, imagine the line of the cable continued down through the car and out the bottom, repeat on an adjacent corner, where the lines cross is the centre of gravity.
