Well now that I'm 26 as of feb 20th i have a lot more new mods that puts my baby(crx) at 130 hp and 140ft/lbs torque,0-60 in 7secs.Not too bad for a 1.5 sohc auto with a passenger and all my tools and clothes packed for the trip to Arkansas.This was measured with my new g-tech,while keeping the rpms at only 4500,my redline is at 7200, now I'm ready to get on the real dyno to pull numbers.

lol,i need to put my carbon fiber underbody tray on soon to help with the downforce to bypass not having one of those bigazz wings on.
Ur kidding, right?!?
Mmmmk, Ima ask the obvious question...why the fark would you need downforce on the rear of a FWD car? Not to mention if it was RWD it wouldn't be going fast enough at the 1/4 to generate lift nor would it make enough power to spin the tires at those speeds. It would slow the car down due to wind drag!!! LMMFAO

Daym you guys take that toooooo serious.And not needind down force on a fwd is booty,i take it that all the fwd cars in scca,nasa,all the other groups don't rear down force.Granted you don't need as much but u still need it on a circuit or rad course when the rear is greatly lighter than the front.It's not a drag carr and if it was yeah i could see the pointlessness of rear downforce.Geesh lighten up.
Not sure exactly how that translates into Engrish, but from what I gather on the point you're trying to make u are saying you need more downforce on a road course on a FWD car---again, why? FWD cars almost always understeer because of the front end weight distribution. If the rear is already planted then why would you need downforce?? Oh yeah....I forgot about the rice factor.....that would make it 'phat' I spose....
Rear Spoiler = more room to adhere sponsorship stickers. :-D
