That is one option they don't have, however if left inside another car they may melt.

The other day, I was pulled over in bed. You should know I sleep in my car.



I got pulled over by one of these.



The cop seemed a little young, but I shrugged it off. He said I was racing one of these.



I told the cop that this was not possible. I simply don't have the suspension to run with an all-foot-drive Subaru rally car. Besides, I was actually just trying to escape one of these.



That's when the cop let me go, but I was shaken up and drove into a ditch. I called a tow guy who drove one of these.



After getting out of the ditch, I headed home. On the way, I had to wait for a train to pass.



It seemed like one of the flashing lights was not working on the train crossing sign, so there was an electrician working on it. The electrician's truck was parked on the side of the road.



Finally, I got to my street and parked near my girl's car.



After that, I walked into my house.



I hope you've enjoyed this ridiculous story.

they can be swapped in and out, modular designs.

the v8 happens to weight more than the others, the v8 also cannot go far without refueling

they also have a habit of getting stuck in the kitchen

Dude, you're looking in the wrong place. I HAD a dyno when I had my CC to measure foot power:
