Dumb Question Thread - no flaming or sarcasm allowed

Here is your chance to ask a question that has probably been answered many times before or you might be afraid to ask because you don't know much about cars etc


No flaming please - just quick honest answers

Hey now! I was watching V8 Supercars last night! God loves New Zealand and Australia, therefore he must love those V8's, am I right?

How many pistons does my RX-8 have? The sales guy at the dealership said it had 6 but I'm not sure.

It has 8. That's what the 8 in RX-8 stands for.

That's also why the RX-7 is so valuable... because it has 7 pistons.

Brettus, is this how you thought this thread would go? LOL

I still can't figure out why it rains harder... I mean, I go a 100mph, and it rains like REALLY hard. It's crazy. It's like the cloud is attached to my speedometer.
