I'll put my 2-stroke and V4 familiarity up against pretty much anyone, but MH has me beat on V4, I'm sure. Laura is probably the best moderating factor I know, being practical and helpful.

Most people with problems like getting the answers they ask for. > - I tend to drone on and on - but I like to think it's > usually better motoring reading reading than the sunday fishwrap.
