Sweeeet. Way to hit the mainstream, juice.

I figured it bounced around the net a bit because of home many views the thread had.

I'm not so sure I'd call the responses mainstream. HT is an enthusiast site, as is this one... (reg'n required to view)...
  • " words..."
  • " my god... "
  • " okay... it looks half assed. if ti was polished up and painted then may I'd give ti props, but so far it just makes him looks like a cheap *******. "
  • " omfg... gayest s**t ive ever seen. wtf. "
  • " i'm doing that on my car. it's final "
  • " better then a big ricer wing IMOA "
  • " I already started on my car but the elmers glue isnt keeping things together enough. I think its too cold out.?? "

The workmanship doesn't bother me. It's a "50/50" job. (Looks fine from 50 feet or going by at 50 mph. :)) The results impress me more.

(Then again, this is coming from someone whose car currently has wheel skirts duct taped on ...)

That mimics real life. You get a few thumbs up, a lot of laughs, and a few mouth-breathing feces-throwing types doing what they do best. But the landscape IS changing.

I get the feeling that the FE revolution will be more permanent than the 1970s, simply because it's so much easier to do the research these days thanks to the internet, and the general feeling that it's not OPEC forcing the change this time.

There's more... the car is going viral:
  • This is soo funny looking but he is getting some good gas mileage.
  • Lololololol...
  • imho 40-50 mpg is a decent amount, why drive a piece of poo to get a little more
  • funny as s**t...
  • cool as heck
  • holy s**t.. thats about retarded. look at his odometer! 440k!!

Luckily, that dude's opinion doesn't count :p The difference between basjoos mpg and 40-50mpg is more than some cars get from the factory :p On par with some crazy hybrid SUV even :p

I don't know why the performance types were making negative comments about my car. Many of the mods on my car are the same as the ones they use on the Bonneville Salt Flat unlimited speed cars to increase their maximum speeds. And the max speed of my car is considerably higher than it used to be (about 40mph higher) and the performance in the quasi-legal 70-90mph speed range is much improved over stock dispite no changes made to the engine.

Sadly, most of the "performance types" don't understand aerodynamics and tend to think that weight is more important.
