I'm going to be honest I'm a bit skeptical of those numbers.

Got a dyno sheet perhaps? I honestly would love to see what you've done.

i got arrested when i was 14 for joy riding in my mommas car (my focus) when she was asleep. seemed like a good idea at the time but didnt turn out so well

Any fun motorsport activity is destructive to your car! Drag, Drift, Road Course, Time Attack, Rally... The only activity that isn't is Car Shows.

If you keep the wheels turned from the get-go and minimize going straight while doing it; it's only really bad to the front tires!
