Well, that would be refrigerant not coolant, but yeah a recharge is all you really need. It'd probably be worthwhile to figure out where the leak is being that the stuff is kinda expensive and stuff you don't really want to be leaking.

That's a very expensive wind tunnel at that. Notice it's circular so the entire thing can be rotated to check aery even at angles. The wheels of the car are also spinning, and there is a moving treadmill that runs underneath the car to simulate ground effects. Far more complex and through than what even F1 used in the 90's

LOL, I only got as far as the 90-minute ones (or something like it, the one where you only have to do so many laps). I never bothered with finishing A-spec because it required too much involvement, lol.

Okay? Trust is the basis for basically anything. I think my merit as an athlete and the accolades I have acquired stand for themselves..

Believe what you want to believe.

Seriously, what do you expect when you are always omitting details or making up stories.

If you are talking about what stories I post on here, then I must quote a famous site:

"The stories and information posted here are artistic works of fiction and falsehood.
Only a fool would take anything posted here as fact."
