Turtle Old people aren't the only ones that drive the speed limit!

G'day all. New member from upstate NY. I drive a stock (except for some collision caused damage...ehem. I blame the icy pavement D 2003 Olds Alero and I have yet to get a good number for my mileage.

I'm interested in this whole ecomodding community and all of the technical aspects of it. I'm currently a senior in highschool with a strong interest in physics and engineering. I plan to pursue said interests in college beginning next fall. Right now my options are limited and college will put me on an ecomodding hiatus as far as personal experience, but I hope to learn a lot from you all. It seems like there's a good amount of people here with a lot of insight on this subject.

Also, that smiley riding a turtle/tortoise is friggin' awesome.

Welcome to EM! Looks like the Batmobile did good on the trip to La Plata.

Right now I'm between SUNY Binghamton or University of Rochester and I'm waiting on Unhiversity of Maryland to give me an answer. From most to least I want to go to: UMD, UR, Binghamton.

I work all day every day on weekends so I can't make it to the Glen. Otherwise, I would be all for it!

The Batmobile, named due to a running joke between me and my friend, did pretty good for only a moderate effort to keep my ecotec...eco-y. Now I just need to figure how to get one of those cool thingers in my sig.

Why is that? What's it's name?

Mine came from this one time when my friend and I were leaving school and I, randomly, said "To the batmobile!" To which he replied: "Wait...what happened to the Alero?" Laughter ensued.

I'd love to come watch... where could I get some info? (PM is fine) I'm moving about 20 mins from Elmira NY, anyway, so I'll be able to actually make it to a convention/show up that way. WG isn't too awful far from where I'm going.
