Bender is now decisive as hell - The Alpo Romeo Pastafellatio

I've been absent for a while so you are probably wondering what life is like with an Quadrifoglio. Cons: It attracts a LOT of attention, almost annoying levels. I have to add a couple minutes to pretty much every store or gas trip I do. Every M3 tries to race you, even in pouring rain. When driving...

Dunno about that. Just higher resistance to detonation, thus moar timing and moar ponies. :225: boi is right on this one, 87 has more btu/gallon than 93, or most 100 and higer blends for that matter. Stuff that increased knock resistant takes away energy content. On the other end you have the diese...

20 mph is 20 mph. You probably know people that have been majorly fucked up crashing a bicycle. Yep.

I'd have died once on the motorcycle, likely dr...
