Ra = 0.5*p*Cd*Af*V^2

heres where ya lost me...

How's that not busy ?
because you have time to do this, you could have just gone to sleep

you are one smart f**ker jmac... props

6. ## Re: Factoring In Air Resistance

wait so what does this prove? i thought everyone knew tib v6's are on high performance 4banger level....

When Jmac takes sh1ts, they're just little piles of statistics and formulas.

8. ## Re: Factoring In Air Resistance

physics is sweet

just wish i was better at it

9. ## Re: Factoring In Air Resistance

lol~

whoever said tiburons were fast and cheesed you off enough to write up something like this?

10. ## Re: Factoring In Air Resistance

lol x2
wicked effort tho

11. ## Re: Factoring In Air Resistance

did you honestly just copy and paste this?

otherwise. how come you dont work on cars for a shop or something on the side?

you seem to know way to much **** to just sit there and do nothing.

It's just math. Everything in the world can be broken down in to a equation. With the exception of girls and hormones.

Nice job.

180 mph?!?!?! i woulda laughed at his face. even if he claimed 140 i'd laugh

14. ## Re: Factoring In Air Resistance

lol~

I see 500BHP tiburons here time to time, using NOS or turbo for their "sprint" cars. I still don't think they can reach 180MPH.

180MPH would be possible with a seriously whacked speedo.

You're assuming a production vehicle has downforce. Most actually will lift at speed, if I'm not mistaken.
