98% of it is from page 230-290. I thought it would be good to hash some of this over again.

Thanks David. I would like to take the credit for this, however Jim Martin is the one that put it together. I found the information on another Forum, and thought it would be helpful here. I was surprised at how much time he has put into giving this information to everyone else. He has done a much better job of sharing his knowledge about the VW motor than any of the other VW builders I have known. So, thanks to Jim for sharing. terry

And thanks Terry for saving it.
Hot, humid air is less dense than cooler, drier air. This can allow a golf ball to fly through the air with greater ease, as there won't be as much resistance on the ball.

For now you have to change the .com to .net we are changing servers.
