You are a bit off, they add 150 HP but, there is a problem, you see that extra HP makes the car go faster but the wing lifts up the front end, thus with the drive wheels off the ground they can't really use the extra power they get from the wing and have a "valid" excuse why they couldnt beat you in a race on the highway when they have "100 HP" more than our "Grannys cars"

Default ricer and a martini

so i pull up to the lights in my 89 sse , this little green acura integra with 2 cocky boys look over, very intimidating, they creep forward to match windows so i could see them clearly, of course, my car is harmless afterall right, i touch the pedal a little to give em a hint, he revs his lawn mower up and im still iffy bout going, so the light turns green and hes off, im still sitting there spinning into oblivion, then,,then might i add, once i had traction, i see 20, 40 , 60 , 80 , 100 and im floating by these idiots who are looking in awe at my fabulous "grandpa car" slide right by them with class, as if nothing was happening, i love being loose when i race, bet they were all tite assed and planning on there attempt to pass . they will think twice bout the next grandpa car they decide to haul.

But I am still confused. Sure those wings add 150 hp and lift up the front but what about the stickers? there must be enough of those things to weigh the front down again plus add another 50 horsepower. Man we better stop making fun of them cause now the front end is back down and they are running 200 extra horsepower

The stickers do weigh down the front end a little, but their weight is only enough to weigh the front end down for another mph or two after that the wheels lift up again and its the same problem (btw, this only works if the square route of the number of stickers equals the square route of the squar of the engine power and torque combined, otherwise they would reduce the speed at which the front wheels lift [this is what a ricer told me so i am not sure but is sounds right ])

but what if the stickers are in a triangle position on the sides and push it in farther, also remember the front bumpers also weigh donw and that 3000 shot of nos they have dominates all
