Trick us youngin's

Heres a little thread to test out how much us teens of the forum know about cars, the people to answer the questions should be (13-18) and whoever has a question (no matter the age) they can ask and only the us "kids" can answer it, comprende?

I got one to start out with for ya'll...

Does a straight 8 have bigger or smaller valve covers than a V8?

(I know it may be tempting for you older ones but don't answer it)

EDIT: You cannot ask a question until the previous unanswered one has been answered and the person who answers it correctly gets to ask

Wait...I think it would depend on which engine. The Italian engines made by Maserati have TINY valve covers. Well, in length anyway. The straight eight valve cover made by Hudson was pretty big though. I think it was a straight eight...

Not sure if I get the question, like surface area? I'd say the straight eight would be smaller, because:
-It's probably a trick question
-They seem bigger
-SlipKnot also thinks they're smaller

BTW Does the asker have to know the answer?

EDIT: Just saw the post above, and just as I suspected, they're bigger...or are they?

Here is a question: who can see the flawed logic in 99's original post?

Hint: It's in the EDIT part.



EDIT: Did the Jetta have a clutch or a torque converter?

Well it has a torque converter, because its an automatic, and within the automatic transmission, there are many clutches. Same goes for most if not all automatics.
