I don't quite understand how welding the block to the frame is gonna drop RPM's. It'll take out some of the give on launch, granted... But you could also just let it slip a bit more too. Either way, once the block / chassis has twisted, 1500 RPM is gonna get you exactly as far as 1500 RPM is gonna get you..

I licked my boss in my car because the voices told me to.

Sounds like the start to a cheesy pr0n flick.

How does welding anything change your RPM? I think you would do better changing your tires to economy tires.

Change that to beer, and you pretty much have me figured out.

I karate chopped my dog in a hole because someone offered me 20 dollars.

Geez, I know I'm pinchin' pennies hypermiling and all. But I didn't realize I had gone that far down the road of $$ desperation. Sorry Fido. And please don't anyone report me to humane society.

Thanks Frank for bringing this to my attention.
