i normally run beside my car....that way it doesn't get tired of carrying my a$$ around.....rofl!

don't think the engine can tell the diff between day and night anyways....... due to the hood that covers it.

I got a acrylic hood that you can see through and I upgraded the factory engine optical sensor with an upgraded solar panel power cell to power the semi-organic positronic brain.

I run 4 PSI of boost dueing the daytime due to the lack of oxygen from the suns immense power of heating and evaporation. And I run 44 PSI of boost at night because it is a few degrees colder and the oxygen is so rich I should catch it in a bottle and sell it on ebay to lung cancer patients.




oh...... and I dont run NOS during the night because it might freeze my engines optical sensor and he wont know the diff between day and night, and it might blow.

I recommend that you get this OEM part# 1886^%&88^75543^%$56-Dumbtwat

Wow, this thread is hilarious . I need to go to work everyday along with a few other things, so yeah, I run my car during the daytime. Also when it comes to drag racing at the track, that's also done during the daytime.

I cut out the floor boards on my STi...I love driving around Bedrock...I agree with the night time bit though, the ground can get quite hot during the day.

You cut out your floor boards? After watching the original "Fast and Furious" movie it appears that floor boards fall out by themselves if you use enough NOS !!!

This is truly one of the most non-sensical posts I've ever seen. Either this poster is a complete troll, or just retarded.

Why Subaru don't hatchback?

I run my car only in the time of the day. I have done this during many years now after the first experience with the cupacabra bad of devil. The cupacabra ate my cow, and then expected in the truck for me and for my wife. blood in my face vomited it up, and did fling caca.
It had took many years in the therapy to conquer my event.
I still to this day have wet myself for the night.

Have you checked your manual? It should tell you if you need to run the engine during the daylight. You might have to because I hear the boost fluid will only last about half as long if you don't warm it up during the day. Might be just a rumor but why risk it?

Yeah, if I absolutely have to run my car during the day, I usually apply a liberal amount of SPF 45 sunscreen for sun protection.

It also enhances the paint's extraordinary ability to resist stone chips.
