Cool More BS and more cheese.

My advice would be to spend some time with a high school physics book. I didn't learn anything in college or grad school that contradicted what I learned from that.

Off topic?

Yeah, can you guys please take this over to the suspension section?

Smile Rotational force variation!

1)It has a numeric value which can be measured and ameliorated by Hunter balancing machines.

Yes Mr. Hasan, I believe it is the most cost effective path. The ULTIMATE solution is what we're talking about PLUS a larger capacity radiator. The fact that the temp needle starts to rise with...

I also took the engine cover off and now it hangs on the den wall. It CAN'T help ambient air circulation inside the engine compartment whatever that may be.
