I seem to recall seatbelt problems
20. Which two men engineered and designed the beautiful lines in the iconic Ferrari 250 GTO?

911 GT2:

1.
2. no
3. not only in the business, can be find out easily if you know where to look. i would have thought you would have known that in engineering?
4. nope
5. nope, note the wording CAR
6. 80's reborn was for #14. it wasnt the mosler.
7. the roadster wasnt euro only
8. thats an easy one for them both

11. nope, think more exotic

13. no less than that
14. production car remember, and you got it right.
15. its an easy question
16. i was running out of questions with this one, its a little specific i know
17. thats for camaro, he adores the engine

I figured that I'd get a shockingly low number of those right.

And CLK (or Penn, whatever): production runs and firing orders are NOT everyday information.

You're asking far too specific information. It's not known in the engineering world what the undertray angles for creating downforce are. If I was forced to guess, I'd say flat.

firing orders no, but he has that car, i know the firing order in my car, 1-4-2-3.


production numbers for speciality cars, i.e the NUR had 1000, the 250GTO had 40, McLaren F1 had 100, CLK-GTR had 25

the angle is 1degree. its not exact but is pretty close

I've got no clue what the production run on anything but the 914-8. And that's because it's only 2.

And firing orders? My car can have whatever firing order it pleases, i don't care.
