Totally, freebeard. In a way, their potato test might prove tha their methods are not reliable more than anything about "spherical oscillation" or whatever. In general their approach to testing needs more thought about sample size, mods, and what sorts of gains "count". I like some of their stuff a lot, but if it is not a giant gain from a single mod, Moog in particular seems unable to see the point.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
