Here's a good one from a couple years ago:

Changing the "neutral" position of the piston inside the shock body will greatly affect its dampening characteristics. (i.e. having more or less shock oil above/below the piston will make the shock work differently)

Or how about this one:

When a friend or loved one dies, if you bury an XRAY chassis with them in the coffin, that person is guaranteed to go to heaven.
it easily has more power than a .22 round. i saw a cell burst and the casing began to turn inside out, the output force was so strong it created a suction making it dent inwards.

People think that putting the stickers on their car is good enough.

Only by sucking the blood from a hamster, then apply the stickers, then regurgitate the blood into the mouth of a cat will give you the .2 second edge.

Try it, try it you will see.
