YKYAEM if the speed limit on the local highway just went up 10 mph and you're the only one in the area who isn't excited.

And the reason you're not excited is because you know that nobody's going to get where they're going any sooner than before. There'll be less fear of tickets, but not much in the way of increased overall speed- especially through the chokepoints where this will probably be counterproductive.

Ha! I've actually thought about that, here is what I came up with:
super low profile, only as tall as the wheels
reverse trike
the wheels ground down to be super thin (lrr)
plus the max weight achieved through integrated weights (more momentum)

YKYAEM if...
... Noting your trip and tank milage, average speed, fuel consumption, etc., and reseting your trip odometer, on-board computer and ScanGauge, then filling out spreadsheets at home and logging the milage online, takes much more time than just filling up.

Can't forget adjusting mpguino! Recalibration math with 10 digit multipliers. Non - modders just don't get it!

Thanks,

Ah, the old 5-digits-more-than-your-measurement-error trick, huh? YKYAEM when you know how big to draw the error bars on your mileage graph

Due to a long day at the end of a long week in blow zero temps, You fail to jot your tank mileage on your hand (the pump didn't print a receipt) before resetting the trip odometer.

And you can solve it by checking your fuel log here and subtracting your log's mileage from your current numbers.

YNYAEM . . . .

If you've owned your car for six months and you have over twenty mods, and you're contemplating modding some of the mods . . . . .

If you're still pushing yourself for best tanks even though gas is under two bucks a gallon and you're spending less than ten bucks a week on it . . . . .

If you could air up a semi tire with the air from your 165-65-14 LRR tire. . . . .

YNYAEM.....

When the boys at the parts counter see you coming and know the parts you want don't go to the application, so the computer's no help & the books come out

Ha! That's basically me in any store... whether it's a supermarket, looking for cutting boards of a specific thickness, a hardware stores looking for brass converter fitting with a particular diameter ratio on the internal step, whatever. I was in a bead shop the other day asking about beads in primary colors, that don't roll easily ...
