Need to get the front to lift on starting line and have very soft springs so it lays back down. Front end low-less air under car no matter what the rest of the body looks like. And remember the air rides an inch off the body at all times.

The amount of HP needed will change as the CD / Coefficient of drag and the Frontal area Change. Notice that you only need 90 HP at about 110 MPH.
