because 1. it doesnt have a rear bumper because rear bumpers cause drag.

and 2. because a lot of pro-rwd cars (such as the turbonetics celica) have wheelie bars..so you need to remove pretty much all of the rear bumper anyway.


and that is NOT a 1,000 horsepower celica...


































it's more like a 1,800 horsepower celica grin

the funny car celica pushes around 3,000 horses..but thats a totally different class.

im not saying the bumper, i mean the sheet metal "wing" if you want to call it that. i know it's for aerodynamics and all that shit, just looks dumb.

^^ that it does. but when your pro-rwd you gotta have as much downforce as possible on the rear wheels.

^^^i agree that it looks dumb, but it actually does something for that (those) cars, unlike the "nice" looking wings we generally have.

They aren't concerned with asthetics.

I know it's not street legal, but I wonder if it's even possible to drive it on the street.

The car is FWD.
But your are right, the wing is there to keep the car stable at high speed.
