A horse walks into a bar.

The bartender asks him "Why the long face?"

Because horses cannot speak or understand spoken language, it does not respond. It looks around, decides that it does not like being in a bar after all, and then leaves.

Thats odd. From what I understand most people are slapping them on with the pre-made basemap tunes that come with the manifold and they run great, just like stock.

Is this fact, or opinion? I've yet to find any documentation of that, only a bunch of people with a similar problem and a bunch of "Experts" suggesting solutions which are totally bogus. Honestly, I would feel a lot better about the issue if I could get it reverted back to a 3.x OS, whether it has anything to do with the problem or not. . .

I've seen many reports of good results on that IM/Tune myself, just not in his case. Betting they might've done something wrong? His car was strong stock though. *shrug*

They said he could pull upwards of 6gs doing that loop-
Imagine the car weighed 2000 pounds and exerted 6gs on that rig they built. That's impressive! It didn't even think about moving!!

I mean they's just need two rails that travel alongside the car, then some sort of railing around the edge of the loop that if the car dropped, it would simply drop onto and slide down the rails.

I finally bought a proper tool box:

$80 for China-steel from Sears. You can only go through so many plastic boxes before you man up. It also barely fits in the Miata trunk.

I first thought this was going to be a mod in the spirit of the original Carmageddon series...
