I am wondering how much down force is created by the nose of SRF3 ?

I searched here and the web.
Did not find an answer.

I don’t know the numbers and would be interested to see an aero analysis of a spec racer, but I’m pretty sure the front has more downforce than the rear.

should be able to determine this with a linear aim measurement add on, where you measure the spring compression at speed. Of course temporary compressions need to be filtered out/ ignored. Then over the spring rate should get a rough idea of total net downforce.
