haha, I'm looking up too many things at once. I'm thinking that improving the aerodynamics and breathability of my car are on the top of my list.

I started a new thread as I encourage insight and i did a search this time ;P

Try that search thing, most "breathability" changes are counter to MPG gains IIRC. i.e. larger exhaust, intake, what have you.

And that water car is a joke without any scientific explanation. Too good to be true is the most likely explanation at this point in time. I wouldn't give them any investment money just based on that video, got scam written all over it.

What an absolutely rude and anger ridden post trail here. No one likes this sort of thing on a forum, it really deters people from staying on a forum when they see things like this. That's why in all of my communities I warn replies like this, and if they are done often I ban the member. I'd rather have 20 new members with 10 posts than 1 vet with 502 who berates everyone.

So I take it you never get tired of answering the same old question, over and over again, or seeing the same topics beaten to death for weeks on end until there is no viable argument for or against it, when it would have taken less time to do a simple search than to post?

I own a forum where 10 new people signup every single day, and ask the EXACT same questions that 12,000 others have asked before them.

Solutions:
1) Copy paste a standard reply
2) or if you are going to be a douche... don't reply at all

It's pretty simple.

Standard reply - use the search function.

That was said. OP had a smart response for it. Hence the reason FrankLee posted what he did. Try reading the thread thoroughly before taking a post out of context and trying to bash it after the conflict has been resolved.

Why did you reply to me to create conflict, if the conflict had been resolved? I am just curious why everyone has to argue a point. You're wrong. How does that make you feel?

See, problem resolved.
