ugh, then he'd be a ricer
if you gonna take an economy car and 'trick' it out, it should be a standard
and put all money into the performance first, then any left over can go towards the cosmetics

man i hate people who pull up next to you in an automatic japanese car, with sideskirts, a 3 foot spoiler, hood scoop and the giant exhaust, revving the engine
and then i can beat them in an 02' mazda protege (yes an automatic) with none of the modifications because i dont have all that crap weighing me down

and people who put spoilers on FWD cars should have their car blown up

Thats why it needs to be a manual with carbon fiber accessories.

or it doesnt need accessories, just put all the money into making the car faster, dont worry about the looks
and carbon fiber, while it does make it lighter, wouldnt make it as fast as spending that money into getting more horsepower into your car

Then why do all the FWD cars in SCCA racing have spoilers? Seriously, though, I know what you mean about those big honkin' spoilers on cars that rarely see the north side of 40 MPH -- both FWD and RWD (and AWD for that matter). On the car forum where I hang out, we call it "static downforce" -- the idea that the mere weight of the spoiler provides additional downforce!

The car he hosed. If it had more carbon fiber parts, it'd be lighter, and therefore, faster.

1968 Mach I Mustang with the 351 Cleveland motor orange with black racing stripes.

or

1967 Chevy Camaro SS with the 454 motor, ghost white Imron paint and glasspacks.

Big blocks rule.
