"Codes where we're going, we don't need Codes".

Before I even clicked the link and saw the picture I had a caption in my mind (must be my day today, either that or I am reading too many dodgy codes and standards-based CR4 threads).

I wonder what he's kicking up that storm all about? Solving an engineering problem maybe? or just playing around?

MAN! Those guys at CR4 are geniuses.

After I replaced the engine with a hemi out of a Charger, dropped in a Toyota transmission, and swapped the suspension with one from an old Taurus, my Cavalier runs GREAT!

Todays' new crash dummies not only look more life like, they act like the average driver on the road.
