You know you're an ecomodder if.... this doesn't happen to you:


Just A Car Guy: Ask yourself, if you really need 1000 horsepower (well, yeah, we all do) does the rest of your car have 1000 Hp withstanding ability? Or, is it about a 500 Hp car, and you better upgrade some bolts and brackets?

You're getting it all wrong- it's pulse and glide, not pulse and slide!
