      you do realize comcast and time warners contributions are public knowledge, and we know they have donated massive money to politicians against net neutrally right?

      sense or not, thats what...

      yeah, like evolution, climate change, vaccinations, and now net neutrality, i have yet to met someone who is against it, who can actually accurately explain what it is.

      the GOP talking heads,...

      1. the FCC already had the power to regulate the internet
      2. net neutrality means that the internet is free, and is now safe from interference, government or otherwise

      especially considering 4 months later they just shot one down directly.

      well said, most of the post, but this part is particular is spot on. engineering solution to met vehicle performance targets.

      1. this is new world russia, i would not at all be surprised to find places only accepting cash sales. this while shady on its face value, are we really gonna doubt that shady as russian businessmen...

      i understand the technical issues quite well actually.

      you simply do not understand the process of product development. once you achieve the design goals, you typically have to stop, because...

      your first paragraph, contradicts the second one :)

      if they set there design spec at 40C, maybe they would employ more sophisticated cooling techniques :confused::rolleyes: youdon'think.jpg

      i...

      yup, turbos are more efficient compressors than most superchargers.

      that does not change my point. the point is, you get a spec sheet when you design something. it has to do such and such, for...

      and yet they are fixed in other cars that advertise as track rats .... ie porsche

      i fully understand the heat budgets of high performance engine, and the ways to manage them. again, that is not...
    13. engineering competency is not the issue here....

      engineering competency is not the issue here. design spec is.



      and if they designed it to operate in 40 degrees C or any far more reasonable and realistic set of ambient conditions, they...

      i am actually an engineer, but that is beside the point.

      and i agree. but the problem is not the supercharged engine. it is the low standard they set for conditions. track temps even in in cold...
    15. i am not confusing them. i fully understand them....

      i am not confusing them. i fully understand them.

      what i am saying, is that makes little difference if the standard you are designing to is 30 degrees C. supercharged or not, they would have no...

      in what world is the Z06 not a track rat? :confused:

      thats literally the entire point of the car.
    17. the Z06 is supposed to be a streetable track car....

      the Z06 is supposed to be a streetable track car.

      thats the point.

      it should be able to hold up to sustained track usage.
    18. and yet, that is how cars are designed. ok,...

      and yet, that is how cars are designed.

      ok, we have this much heat to deal with, we have these ambient conditions to deal with, and this is what we need to do to make it work.
    19. i understand the physics. what you don't...

      i understand the physics.

      what you don't understand is the engineering method. if 30C is your target condition, you do the math, and thats how big its going to be. if 35C was your target, it...

      power means heat. any way you generate power, you are making a lot more heat. nature of the beast.
