Default Re: Evo 9 spinning at 183mph

Well yes... No rear wing+trailing off the throttle+even the slightest turn at that kind of speed will do that to you. What kills me is the fact that he took off the rear wing thinking it would give him an extra 10 mph. This is a freakin' evo we're talking about, not some ferrari that was designed in a windtunnel. Did he actually think those kinds of speeds would be manageable without any form of wing/diffuser in back to hold it down? I'm glad he's all right and it doesn't look like the car got torn up badly, but wow.

On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high. -Ayrton Senna
