Koenigsegg is looking into putting camshaft-less valvetrain into their next engine with intentions of infinitely variable lift and duration.

FUUUU!!!! First Mclaren get to my swaybar-less suspension idea, and now koenigsegg get to my camshaft-less and throttlebody-less engine design.

"If you have an idea, chances are, someone's thought of it already."

Hopefully you have enough time. When I go somewhere, I like to spend 5 days per city (not including travel time).

I'm spending anywhere from 3-6 days per city. I'm gonna try and save on the travel time by taking the train at night. I'll happily trade a day of scenery for a day of sightseeing.
