A friend's friend got a F40 to point him by @ COTA in a Miata. F40 was apparently driven by a friend of the owner. I am friends with the wrong side of this interaction. LOL

let me guess, there's no installation, and no actual comparisons in the above video. just a bunch of hipsters talking about what they are going to do?

Pretty sure there will be a part 2.

I was into it until they were making predictions and thought the rotrex might be a torque monster.

lol the rotrex is a **** monster. no torque, no mid and shitty high end because it pulls power from the crank.

The only + to a centrifugal supercharger is that its more efficient than a roots at max speed and that its extremely predictable because its a gradual boost increase based on rpm unlike with a turbo.

lol. the literal disadvantage of the supercharger is being argued as the thing that's going to make it perform as well as a turbocharger...

This begs the question. Enclosing the image url within [img][/img] is how I have always done it. However, within the last ... year? Year and a half? The [img] bracket code will get eaten by the website if I don't post it fast enough.

What magical method should I use? Right now I place all my brackets, then quickly cut and paste my url's and post. If I messed something up I edit and do it all over again. If I let it sit there for a minute, they get eaten.

if its a jpeg always use the forum picture downloader since it pulls it from the server into the local MT server, if its a large pic such as a gif then add img tags using the original url

No magic at all. I copy the link and hold it in the buffer BEFORE I type the IMG code. Then as soon as it's done, I can paste immediately.

That being said, it did not work on that gifv. Maybe because it's on IMGUR ?
