Looking at the comments on that video reminds me how much I hate Mustang owners. They buy a Found On Road Dead and act like they own the world. The best are the ones that buy the auto V8's and act all tough.

That 'stang isn't too impressive though. You should see some of the ones I've seen on the drag strip.

...isn't that too small of an engine for that turbo?
Nah it's big but it's specific to the car. I honestly would prefer something smaller for what I do with the car. My Talon had a smaller turbo on it and some people even dogged me about it but the fact of the matter is I was spooling hella lot quicker than they were and stayed consistant the whole time with it being an automatic.

*shrug* it really depends on what you're doing with the car. Putting a turbo in isn't always a good idea. It can even be worse than not having one. That's true for any aftermarket performance accessory though.

About a wing on a FWD car. IMO, you're money can be either saved for your evo or on an actual upgrade to your car. If the car was RWD, I'd somewhat understand the wing.
Drifting is for RWD cars. I'm talking about road racing. I don't see driving around cones being as fun as tracking.

And when it comes to wings on FWD cars, they can be pretty functional. Downforce plays more of a role than people think. Downforce can provide stability at high speeds, and during braking, which is what my wing is designed for, and what the Mugen wing does, and its adjustable.

Well, AutoX is road racing. There are track and cone events. I can't wait for the season to start.

I think we'll butt heads on this one but my initial opinion remains regarding spoilers/wings on FWD cars. They're more cosmetic than functional since the drive wheels remain unaffected. If anything, the downforce pushes the rear of your car down while it raises the front up.

Auto-x isn't road racing. Auto-x is racing in a parking lot or giant pad with cones. Road racing is on actual tracks.

You can think what you want about wings on a FWD car, but facts say otherwise. It doesn't raise the front end of the car, it just keeps the rear end planted and provides stability. When you brake hard, the rear end of the car lightens up, and a proper spoiler will provide downforce and keep it planted.
