That is from the O3 car. In 2004 rules changed so that all engines must be maximum 3.0Liters in hopes to slow down the car. They now have the HI5R engine

Also dont F1 cars have to use the same motor and tires for two races. I watched a f1 race a few days ago and the only thing they were doing was adding fuel and making aero adjustments. The course they were racing on was redesigned to slow them down too. It use to have a 1mile straight strech and they put a bunch of turns in it. And yeah she is smokin hot. I found a picture of her with her helmet on its pretty sexy.

yes, but IRL (indy, danaica patrick) is not F1. IRL is just circle track, and the cars are not nearly as advanced as F1's. In F1, starting this year, they are only allowed one set of tires a race, same engine for 2 weekends and there was alot of changes in the areodynamic rules to slow the cars down.

seems like a good swap for a NSX :ph34r:
 
mmm she would get it good and proper B)

and i hope she does well tommorow, it would do a lot of good for irl
 
I just recently started looking into motorsports so I dont know a whole lot, but are they all trying to slow cars down to keep the competition close? what could be some other reasons?

safety, you can only hit a wall so fast...

Yep, they have been doing it in everything from NASCAR to F1. With todays technology, they could easily get a car to run around Indy motor speedway at speeds of 300+ but at those speeds, drivers don't have a chance at walking away in a crash, no matter how good the engineering is. The year before they changed IRL displacement regulations, a driver died from being in a "normal" crash. Speeds were approaching 250mph.
