My racecar lifted almost 10 cm ( about 4") at 210 km/h at the main straight. This was without any spoiler though, and 2" wider fenders. So.....

Yes, yes I do. There are some pretty fast cars around my neighborhood. Supercharged viper w/900 hp. A 9 second grand national. A 9 second mustang who's my neighbor. And one really fast 930 wide body which I have only seen once at a car show, garage queen. And yes I want to go 240 km/h at least just to beat those cars. What can I say, I have high expectations.
I love my money pit, uhm, err, I mean my car.
