I cleaned up the ol' IS today - wash, wax, tire shine, vacuum. I found myself driving more spirited
than usual on the way home. I find that I drive faster when my car is squeaky clean for some unknown reason...

I don't. I'm just the opposite. When the car is at its cleanest, I tend to drive slower because I enjoy watching people sweat the car and I know they're wishing they were me. When the car is clean, the rims and tires are shining bright is what I call pimp time!!! I thought you knew!!!

LOL! I find myself doing the same thing. Crank the radio up. I think a clean car gives you 5 more HP in I'm not mistaken!

Clam knows what time it is. What sense does it make to spend all that time getting her all glassed up when you're driving too fast for people to admire your work?

our physics teacher told us that when you wax your car...theoretically you can go faster because of the loss of dirt and grime on your car...the dirt and grime creates more parasitic drag...plus...after waxing...your car has a lower drag coefficient...

so being a nice student i raised my hand and asked: "can you prove that???" he said...okay, now let's go on to chapter 7...

I wonder if the weight reduction argument could apply.


Mass of Dirt > Mass of Wax

or

Mass of Dirt < Mass of Wax?

I'm not sure. Could be an illusion because my nose is a little bit higher.
