Default Time to end this?

I think it's safe to say that this thread has lost some of it's origional thunder and luster. We had a great run nearly one post every two minutes at first.

However, I feel its time to crown the top ten. Let's vote, shall we? Those wishing to cast a vote, send your selections to me in a PM, and I will tally the results. Please only choose one or two from the thread. The ten most requested will be on the Top Ten List.

I actually say this one is plausible. Although, it wouldn't make you 1/2-1 lap faster, I think these things help. A paintjob can be a big mental thing, and make you feel faster, causing you to actually go faster, and the trigger thing I think is actually a big deal, I personally have small fingers, and when I use someone else's radio, I have trouble driving their car because I can't get on the brakes fast enough.

"I just need more horsepower !"

A myth I busted myself.

One day I accidently ran with my radio set to 72% throttle EPA and set a new P.R.
