Thanks for checking. Just wanted to make sure.

I posted my article about the R&T item:

Q: How do you get 116 mpg (US) in a Metro XFi? A: Pulse and glide.

great article

What a great article. I loved every minute of it. SAE looks very very fun. I watched my school build a Formula SAE with a Honda CBR engine in it. Not quite the goal but equally fun engineering.

This reminds me of a more recent thread, where a magazine bought a rusty old VW diesel and drove it to get a new engine...and we haven't heard back since then. I can't find the thread now.

I thought it was Top Gear America that bought the Rabbit, and no we haven't heard on their progress in quite some time...
