253 mph, how can it be driven past 200, wouldnt the car lose control?

It's a 3500 pound car, not very easy to make it slide, and it's probably got tunelling under the body for extra downforce...

Remember, it is also low to the ground, so it would less air resistence, not to mention the design in consideration.

i am not sure about this but wouldn't a hevier car be easier to control at higher speeds? Like i don't mean an 18 wheeler but like it's hevier means more force on the tires and they would have more grip with the road. Wouldn't it take more force to move a hevier car than a light car? I am not sure about this so don't start flaming me

But since its a 3500lb car going 200+ wouldnt the momentum really cause steering problems with during even the slightest turns?
