Help! Loud vibration at high speed

I am having a weird problem with my evo. Whenever I drive (on a track) near or over 100 mph, I get this really loud vibration noise coming from the roof, I think! Call me crazy, but I think it's the shark fins panel on the roof vibrating due to the high speeds. I know it's not the wing because I don't have a wing on my car. The only other things I think it could be are, the antenna somehow vibrating loudly at speed, the shark fins, or something on the hood or having to do with the hood scoop. I can't figure it out. Has anyone else had this problem?

The vibration is REALLY loud at speed. Loud enough to startle me the first time I heard it. I can consistently replicate the noise, every time I drive near or above 100mph I get the noise. I'm thinking about recording it and posting on youtube so you guys can hear it.

Has anyone experienced something like this?

Do you or any of your friends have a GoPro, or any sort of camera you can mount to see if it is indeed the VG? Just a thought...

No GoPro unfortunately. I think I'm going to just try and record it from inside the car using an iPhone 4. The noise is super loud so it shouldn't be a problem. I'll try and do it today. Never heard of this problem before?
