Wow, heavychevy, that was an impressively complex and convoluted conspiracy theory!

Hey, look at the bright side. Whatever happened, it was cheaper (and more fun) than paying 18 years of child support to a one-night-stand. :cheers:

Wouldn't a "manly" car also need manual windows, manual spark advance/retard and manual fuel mixture control? And what's up with power steering and power brakes on a "he-man" car? ;)

Were you interested in having an intelligent discussion about transmissions, or did you just want to satisfy some sort of conflict addiction or be a troll?

Based on all their research so far (which they have also shared on this forum), my first inclination would be to go with a GSpeed tank.

Another Cooling Thread

I wonder how much could be accomplished by spraying a fine water mist on the heat exchangers, like the Porsche GT2RS does under high power demand?

Who knows? Maybe he was a novice driver who didn't know how to control power to the driving wheels, or he was trying to "drift" the car, without sufficient countersteering practice,
