[DMCForum] Re: Why I like this forum

I'm glad YOU'RE having so much fun. Personally feels like being nailed
to a cross sometimes. I even receive hate eMail off Forum!

What blows my mind is people give ME so much crap for *TRUE*
statements, then let obvious errors slide right by without comment:
-Lowering compression increases HP (normally aspirated engine)
-Tach redline indicates point of maximum HP
-A small engine with high HP numbers will out pull a large engine with
low HP numbers
-The optimum time for ignition spark is at the threshhold of detonation
-Engines do not produce vacuum
-Octane and methane are the same molecules
-Coil voltage is immaterial to mixture ignition
-DeLorean underbodies are not made of plastic
-An on and on and on

Wow, what a blast from the past.

If anyone comes up with an emoticon for shaking one's head, PLEASE
post an example. It will become my new signature.
