I apologize, apparently they filled my tires with Nitrogen - an inert gas that isn't too exciting. I thought they were aware of my performance ambitions because of the car and, well, yeah... I sucked in Chemistry class.

So will the Nitrogen make my car any faster? I know its drier, so it should be lighter - but that's a small change.

Gargoyle suggested Helium, but I'm not sure, won't too much unsprung weight cause distortion of the contact patch and a loss of cornering g's???

So, you're trolling right? Yes?

How much performance gain from the weight difference from 4 tires worth of oxygen versus nitrogen do you think you're getting. I'll give you a hint, take off your valve stem caps. That's thousands of times more weight saving that what you got from filling those tires with nitrogen.

^ Please, don't lock this....I laughed so hard I blew soda all over my screen. Some things just weren't expected and caught me quite not ready.

I haven't laughed this hard at an Intr4w3b car thread since that Red Bull energy-drink/fuel-additive mixup.

Made up or not, this is some funny stuff, I'll give the OP credit for that!
