Everyone knows you can get a turbo or supercarger for a corvette and hit 1000hp but it was the NA tune who where the most powerfull i believe.
My personal favorite was the supra in GT3. so much power! i started to understand setup back then. if you made it entirely for corners, wheelspin was to be expected up to 200km`t, if you soften the rear you got it down to 180k but then you had less corner speed. It had good brakes too.
I to this day allways go for a Evo or/and supra in any game.

Thanks to speedhunters i also see now that it has the strakes/guides even on the windshield area.
1 year, 11 months ago on Form Follows Function, The Lovefab Nsx
@sean klingelhoefer yupp glad i found them on FB.
Group 5 car with them.. strakes im talking about on the hood, to contain the air.
Rules mostly prevent this on modern race cars.
Love it. Subcribing on facebook.
Considering that huge front end i am mega surpriced it still was unbalanced. big guides (plexiglass?) to prevent air from going of the hood?
The higher the rear wing the more you lift the front. Same if its far back. sculping a "flip" and so on. On the main body at the back should perhaps have been done first. Diffusers work under and closer to center of the rear wheels so no leverage there. Unless the diffuser is going far behind the rear wheels.Still need more df? then add rear wing as needed.
And when it comes to looks. i find it to be very cool looking. Beauty in functions.

"6/7 degrees for 2D on a 3D with strakes you can go up to 16.7degrees."
This i believe is more related to wind tunnel mounted shapes. Not cars. cars got some benefits like the ground not providing friction for the air but also challenges like the ground moving and so on.
