I'm glad I've got a gasser, and am therefore ineligible to win, because getting a plague would suck.

Driving a gasser IS a plague all its own though.

Two words: Torque it!

/EDIT: Why does it take so many revs to make 116 BHP?

Because it's a 1.6L made in 1992?

For a 1.6L, 116 bhp was actually quite good for a daily drivable engine with econobox maintenance requirements back then, with no turbo...

I've driven your car. Fairly certain it's making less than 116 bhp

Toof, don't try and convince us of the superiority of your 3 cylinder Miata.
