bs he learned it from GT4,

bs he learned it from GT4, no way he can play a game many times and then expect to jump into a ELise and then win a race like that.

Nice racing though, reminds me when I worked for GOLD in that game. But IMO working for mpg is a better and more realistic challenge you can do everyday without hurting others ;P in a high speed collision.

I'm hoping one day I can film a video of me getting some crazy mpg with some crazy syncing trance music with the video.

not if you break so many laws to get an absolutely redicolous number.

I'm just not ready yet, one day. (I'm still trying to find the secret path to triple digits). Since my camera can record silky smooth video I can hope it can trip out some as well as encourage others.

Until then I'm lazy.

those kinds of figures won't

those kinds of figures won't happen unless you swap in a smaller displacement motor, better gearing, aero mods, weight reduction and some other stuff.

one day that will be proven wrong, i doubt i'll go all out when attemping to get some good mpg. I have quite a few hilly roads, (i think if i pick the right routes i can go with more than 50% engine off if done correctly) I'm just going to try to pick the ones that will net me triple digits, doing it for the number and not actually trying to get it in everyday driving... that's too much!

Even if the trip is short (like 5 - 10 km or 5 miles max) if I can show its possible then that would be neat! For sure though I'll do this in the nighttime so that I have no one on my tail.

The only mods I would need imo would be synthetic engine oil, block heater, transmission synthetic oil swap, over inflated LRR tires, and myself that's enough to dent some numbers. All the other mods sounds like highway miles to me, and highway is not what I am interested in at the moment.

If you do that you might become the next internet video superstar. Well if gas is $9 a gallon you might


The second video on this thread is very scary. I think death (or at least a crash) is lurking around the corner for those drivers.
