Look at how many already have baseline potential, though. It took drivers like us to actually get anywhere with it, eh?

They're just going to do exactly what we've been doing for years, and call it their own "innovation". It pisses me off because they're avoiding the bigger issue of making the engines themselves more fuel efficient, and claiming increased efficiency on the low-note by making modifications to each chassis individually, thus wasting more money and man-hours.

The same engine gets used in 15 different cars.. why not work the engine one time to make it more efficient, instead of working a chassis 15 times but leaving the engine alone?
