Well Rotiform got the design from the Gallardo LP560-4. Dunno who made that.

lol
wtf
this isn't just someone pulling data out of his ass
how do you think they measure calories for food items?

Okay, apparently the wheel is called "Cordelia" (), made by Speedline. So Speedline > Rotiform > BBS

Thank you Optimus Prime, for dying for our sins

I'm baffled at how you and dave think it's so easy to measure the energy content in a pound of body fat.

All the values I used for melting ice can be obtained within 5% accuracy by an elementary school student in a kitchen, and the answers I got required only elementary level algebra.

Finding the calories of energy in a pound of fat though, is far beyond my level of knowledge and resources, mainly because you can't directly measure it, unlike the specific heat or heat of fusion of water. It's also something that going to vary quite a bit depending on the individual and what exactly is being measured, since "fat" isn't a specific term.

Yeah, yesterday I was like "hmm, how is this female fitting supposed to connect to the female port on the end of the clutch master cylinder..."

You're showing showing your noobness if you think you can measure the calories of a pound of a persons fat the same as food, lol. I think the the result you would get would be similar to a holocaust concentration camp oven if you tried.
