    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.

    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.

    I'm sure your friend misread KMH and MPH.

    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.
