Zero-Keel
A method of mounting the front suspension directly to the nose cone without the use of a suspension Keel. This solution is aerodynamically optimal but complicates suspension design since it entails that the suspension arms are at an angle with respect to the road surface, reducing suspension efficiency.

Zip
Whilst the zip on a driver's overall is hidden behind the layers of Nomex®, it has to be able to withstand the same temperature that the suit will take in the event of a fire. It must not melt or transfer heat close to the driver's skin.
