    top speed in the video is ~260kph, which is awesome considering we added 4 degrees of wing before that was filmed. For those not auto savvy, adding wing gives downforce, allowing for higher cornering speeds, but increases drag, meaning less top speed

    Yeah, I'd be scared going that fast too...The fastest I've been was 180 kph, and that was on the highway, and that was scary :oops:

    lol, the car is so stable at speed it feels like you're putting along at 200kph. i accidentally got up there on the 401 and was wondering why everyone was going so slow till i looked at the speedo and stabbed the brakes :lol:

    The intrepid can't handle any higher speeds :lol:

    the car you're driving has a lot to do with it. i can drive the GT3 at 200+ no problem, but if i take mine to 140 i'm scared shitless... mostly because im afraid it will fall apart :lol:

    more than I could afford, even if i got the car for free.

    ~80 litres of 94 octane a day
    tires usually last 2 or 3 events, they're like $3k a set
    performance brake pads are ~1k, last 5 events
    rotors, i dunno, they last awhile and probably cost a lot

    fastest so far is a 1:36, fully 2 seconds faster then the old car. my dad seems sure he can do 1:32's in it, which would be very fast for mosport

    At least he didn't opt for the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake system, those are having problems with the rotors cracking and owners getting charged ~$45K USD for repairs! (It was 26K pounds/sterling)

    yup, that's why we didn't do it. the composites are awesome for the street, and will last forever, but overheat em and they crack . plus, the performance gain you get is minimal over steel with upgraded pads. hopefully they will have updated the system in time for the 997 since they're going to be an option on all models.

    Yeah it's pretty retarded. Porsche advertises them as a solution for the track, and then they break and they don't warranty them.

    If they didn't fucking crack they'd almost be worth it for the unsprung weight savings

    Well of course the car has a lot to do with it :lol: If I had an STi, sure I'd drive it real fast, it's one of the most safest cars 8) I'm not afraid my intrepid will fall apart, I'm afraid it will blow up :rofl:

    Word, not to mention the heat resistance.

    Lots of tuners are saying that they're cracking due to the lack of cooling that the car gets off the front end, but.. have you seen the front of a GT2? How can you get bigger scoops up there?!
