    Driving supercars and knowing how to drive a supercar are two very different things. And if you don't know what a 180 degree crankshaft is, you obviously don't know how they work either

    180 degree crank makes optimally spaced exhaust pulses or something like that that results in more torque at the expense of more vibration thats what i heard form a mag the only production cars with them are the 360 modena and the lotus v8 esprit it can be treated as two inline 4s<!-- Signature -->
