Well, of COURSE they make it faster! Don't you know anything?
They bigger the sticker, the faster the car. And don't forget the big one that goes across the back window.

Hey now, whats with the sticker bashing?? I put stickers on the side windows and the really big one across the back window to cut my times and it worked, honest!! I'm about to put more under the hood so the other guys don't know just how fast my car really is.

Of course I know that! The topic of this thread is "stickers" so I was addressing that speed secret ONLY.

I've heard that the big red "R" sticker is just the ticket for 80-100 hp gains. Would that help on my wife's 454 vette? I tried the high dollar engine build, and couldn't quite hit 500 hp on desktop dyno, (485 HP, 520 ft lbs) That sticker just might do it!

Y'know, I've always noticed a definate increase in HP when I added those little door reflectors. I think a light-up license plate ring helps too.

(and I'm on my way to Parts Source right now to pick up some of those yellow stickers.)
