    Oh jeez. That would be horrifying. The aero might be so morphed, only that won't affect the speed, it would immediately send heavy amounts of air at your face, at the turns. And it would be at an angled direction. Ouch. That would send so many Gs into the race.

    It is not that long ago they had those?

    1500hp 4 cylinder F1 cars were before that I guess and for me old F1 cars are something from 70's, I guess I start to be old then too :D

    Those 1500hp turbo F1 cars might be interesting on oval, with ground effect an all that, at least I think ground effect was still allowed at that time?

    I think so. F1 really needs to get faster. I want a V-12 car that has ridiculously large tires, not holding all of its fuel from the beginning of the race.

    I am very sorry for bumping this thread, but I got an interesting fact I really want to share.

    You can't get Netflix in China, North Korea, Syria, and Crimea, but apparently you can get it in Antarctica of all places.



    I would've shared this in General Discussion if we still had it.

    Fun fact: Bumping posts usually can get hate. Except for some cases, which is quite useful. (like this one)

    Maybe because one of the owners of Antarctica is the United States?

    The Chinese-only Acura CDX has been speculated, and then officially has been confirmed to be sold later to the North American countries Canada and the United States.

    Antarctica's lands are divided in what can be seen as 'pizza slices' and they belong to major world powers (USA, Britain, Russia, etc.) OR nearby countries (Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, etc).
