You are on the right track. In the simplest case, if you increase the downforce on the front wing only the cp moves forward. Joseph Katz book is a great place to start - it is cheap and has lots of graphs.
What is the effect of raising or lowering the front wing on the aero map ? I mean how does it affect / move the center of pressure. I think center of pressure is like the aerodynamics version of center of gravity? Does anybody know the formulas used to calculate center of pressure. Or where to find such literature ?
