Make sure your motor is capable of handling that kind of power level.

Sure, you can street drive a race car... But I would not call it enjoyable.

my car at its power level is about too much for the street. I cant really make use of Sport sharp, so i typically just drive in sport which is ~400 whp on E70

With the heavy clutch, E85 etc its not really a car I'd say I'd want to take a road trip in.

but sure, 800 whp is super street friendly lol

Eh I disagree, We made north of 900, and have a Triple plate clutch and dry sump in the car, She's super fun and easy to drive on the street.

Some us have different tolerances, I used to be able to put up with a more aggressive setup, but if it doesn't drive like a stock car or very near, I don't enjoy driving it on the street.

I have a race car, it's not something I like driving regularly on the street, and it has a smooth clutch... But it's stiff and drones a lot.
