Sounds like a good magazine article and a worthwhile investment for wheel/tire companies. Stuff like that always gets people to spend money.

Data supporting faster ETs with smaller/lighter wheels?

When I'm not spending my free time in my Camaro, I spend it on cycling. That is definitely a sport where the rotational weight of wheels makes a big difference, especially climbing and accelerating....

Hadn't thought about the "Team America" and ECO issues. I guess that would be a reason too, sort of the "Hummer Effect" but not quite as bad. I still think it's more driving, parking and personal...

Egging, Keying and other defacement

I keep seeing threads concerning "my car was egged," or "my car was keyed," etc. Hopefully I don't jinx myself, but in 21 years of driving over 15 cars, this has never happened to me.

Yes. My confusion was not so much that it wasn't ambient temp, but that it was within 90% of it's prior temp with brand new oil. I wouldn't expect room temp water in a pot that just had boiling...

You're missing the point. I would have expected it to be much lower since it's essentially full of ambient temp oil. I'm just looking for the reason it wasn't closer to start-up temp. For example,...

It's not so much the level it normally runs at, but the fact that it was at running temperature immediately after starting up with brand new oil that has me confused.

Thanks. I was thinking about Selman, based solely on the number of Vettes they sell. I know, not scientific, but my only other experience was with Weseloh in San Juan Cap who no longer exists.

Nothing for a long time. The Camaro is a 3rd car. If not the new Camaro, it would have been a restored 60s Camaro in the future when my kids are out of the house and I have more time on my hands.
