  •  LIE! (0+ / 0-)

    There are almost no cars that can generate more than 1G acceleration.  Even fuel dragsters don't get to 3.  Are you telling me no one could grab a $20 in the face of 1-3 Gs.

    Yeah, I knew several people who told that lie.  A couple even believed it themselves.

      The puny weights of Vegas and LUV trucks when paired with an engine used in motorhomes today can slam you into the seat and if shifted properly keep you there.

        Simple math tells us that humans can run controls in front of them up to 6-7 Gs (see the space program).

        Simple math also tells us that a Vega with a big mill will never come close to getting 1 G acceleration because they are so nose heavy, the rear tires will just go up in smoke.

        I am always astonished by the technological / mathematical illiteracy of your typical liberal.

          The funny cars I helped build although tore up the tires did get off the line quite well.

          And the weight of a GM short block is not so much more than a four banger that it makes more than an inch difference in ride height.

          I've turned the wrenches and been slammed into the seat plenty of times to know how these things work.

          with a piddly little 383 (interceptor with the big T-quad) and could not grab the money.
          I was nine.
          Been an addict ever since.
