Exclamation The Unicorn Corral: warning - reader skepticism is advised!



This subforum contains discussions of modifications which are based on questionable (or non-existent) science, or for which credible proof is sorely lacking. Reader skepticism is strongly advised.

Topics here should bring to mind Carl Sagan's words: "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."

Proponents/defenders of mods & theories in The Unicorn Corral are urged to also see these threads:

This will be a nice forum so that these "questionable" mods aren't in the same place as the real MPG increasing mods.
