    Aerodynamics is something that has always intrigued me. I love seeing wind tunnel and computer generated models of air travel.

    Wondering if that’s the same Gurney Flap option on the 19GT350R?

    Looks identical from the photos I have seen of the flap on the 2019 GT350, not the R.

    This really leaves the standing mile guys out. This car would have been somewhere in the high 180s for trap speeds. Is the limiter just for the cars with the big wings or does it include the base model as well?

    Weren't all the S197 GT500's speed limited to 155 mph with the exception of the 13/14 coupes or was it just the convertibles?

    Significant aero slows the car down quite a bit. Trade off for sticking to the ground. Same thing with the Viper ACR-E vs. the regular Viper. No surprise here.

    I think firing the mayor/governor/councilman will be pretty easy. From there it’s game on.

    not really 130/160/190 if the aero is that hard on it anyway, its only a couple mph off
