people r dum
As much as I love that puzzle, I think it would be even more of a mindfuck if the 60% were changed to 0%. Then every possible answer falls through to one of the other possible solutions, creating a cascading paradox of brain bleeding.

Some turbo bits, but was N/A after last partout with performance header.

Need to pay stuffs like medicals. ******* medicals.





I refuse to be miataless for more than a year though. However if this gets out of my sight I can finish my supra as well and get a 5 speed miata finally.

Will make sale post eventually.
If you were closer I would be there tomorrow.

I think it would be more of a mindfuck if 60 were changed to 66%

What a strange quiz. The only winning move is not to play.

I love the hypermile forums. "Advance spark angle until it knocks in all conditions, then reduce and 'don't push the throttle down too far' for maximum fuel economy."

lolol

I hypermile my Frontier. 5spd, 4 banger truck that averages 29mpg. Win ****.

Of course, I don't get crazy with it like the people on those forums. I'm sure everyone remembers the story of the guy who dropped a rod and piston from his 3cyl metro and shaved the cam lobes down to make it a 2cyl that got near 100mpg

The guy who doesn't realize that a question mark is typically used to punctuate a sentence which contains a question.
