Again... I never said that. All I said was that a 935 type body is capable of hitting well over 200 mph so it wont be as much of an issue with these to specific cars. I'd like to hear your calculations in regards to how much more horsepower Blackbird will need due to its body pannels. Additionally, I wouldnt be so myopic in thinking that Gabe might just possibly modify or remove high resistance pieces a bit if he were to take part in a race like that? (Kind of like what everyone does) Comon guys lets think outside the box a bit.
