    UNREASONABLE: I fear getting under a car on a lift, or even on jack stands.

    Whatever you do don’t get on you tube and search vehicle lift failures. I’m sure this won’t help your fears.

    Cool Off Period After Driving

    I commented quiet a bit in this thread because heat is one thing that I always obsess over. My 2002 Yamaha R1 always ran 162/175 no matter how hard you beat the bike. Now at a stop light they climb fast and the fans kick on at 220 bringing them to 210 and kick off. We have tuners get in our ecu...

    Obviously you meant 220 and yes this is about as high as they like them to get. Corvettes will go beyond this on occasion.

    Cool Off Period After Driving

    Wow awesome, I’ve not heard of this. But I do know this is done with some cooling systems. My 00 Vw GTI had a secondary electric water pump that continued to go after the VR6 engine was shut down. I’d say doing both oil and coolant to eliminate hot spots would be best.

    I’m just going by maximum power efficiency. Anything over 185 is costing maximum power from my research. This research being in superbike racing. So I assume a vehicle maximum efficiency couldn’t be much higher if any.and he is way over that.

    Overtightened oil drain plug

    If it’s that tight or stripped I’d definitely try a 6 point socket to not farther strip the drain plug

    LS2 2005 Corvette MityVac 7201 won't work

    I am getting ready to buy a new 7201, definitely great for other things like changing power steering fluid and stuff.

    Why are horse trailers typically 24" less wide than most enclosed trailers?

    My guess would be to help stable the horse on the road. 8’ is not enough for 3 wide but with 6’ is perfect for 2 stalls width wise. This is just a guess. I’m no horse guy. I do love horses though.
