Has anyone noticed their hood flexing when in higher speed turns? There is one on ramp that has a hugh sweeper...so I took it a bit fast (160 km/h) and I noticed my hood kinda bobbing up and down. I checked it after, and it was locked in fine. Is it because the metal is so thin? Or the speed with the turn? I don't seem to notice on straight line speed runs?

I've noticed it too. Traveling at 80+ the hood starts bobbing up and down.

The hood is aluminum on the F. You will get movement at those high speeds, and that's with any car, especially those with lightweight aluminum, composite and especially carbon fiber hoods.
