Re: Active Aero

There is no active areo in the 97+ models that I know of. The reason I said it wasnt realy doing much is that a). You could just have a spoiler set to provide downforce and it would come into effect as the wind speed increased b). Our cars can't take sharp turns going 150mph like F1 cars and the dowforce provided isn't close to the thousands of pounds of force created by the F1 cars at max speed so downforce isnt realy needed much... an interesting fact is that given a track that goes from being on the ground to being upsidedown in the air the F1 cars could theoretically drive upsidedown because of all the down force.

Nah...that's pretty normal as far as I'm concerned. I'd say the question of sanity doesn't come into effect until 150+

Your 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 is the 92nd out of the 315 that were made that year. Only 21 of which are exactly identical.
