just because vacuum was here before pressure (and that's the whole creation vs evolution debate anyway) doesn't mean it created pressure. I don't believe that vacuum is a force or a source of energy.

this is where i would reply with the whole balance of things, like the yin yang theory....... but sometimes getting through to ppl just isnt necessary.

just for example though ... you said "cleans ur damn room cuz ur too lazy to do it urself..... vacuum!!" . Don't you need the electric motor to create the vacuum?

not just an electric motor. there are many ways to create a vacuum, then again, so do ya to even create pressure.

Vacuum means nothing... pressure means nothing... all they do is define a pressure differential. What you are looking for is atmospheric pressure differential. It's all about the pressure differentials.

why atmospheric? that would be storms and stuff. Just because you're talking about pressure relative to atmospheric pressure doesn't make it "atmospheric pressure differential".

but you're right, of course, pressure differential is like a source of potential energy. It's much the same as voltage or height (in fact height causes a dP). In fact, pressure and voltage are very analogous (think of water in a pipe and current in a circuit: V=P, I=flow, R=proportional to drag etc..)

The S2000 doesn't have the horsepower to pull it through the quarter, but it thrives on short racetracks. It's a budget friendly sports car, after all.

That 1/4 mile # on the S2000 is way off... the 00-03 2.0L S2000's run low 14s (we're talking 235-240hp, RWD and under 2800lbs here...see it at the track all the time).

The newer 04-05 S2000's with the 2.2L run a bit quicker mostly due to the slight increase in power (about a 15hp bump and 10tq bump, according to dyno results), the much better gearbox (named to be the best gearbox EVER by some places) and finally the fatter tires. I've seen one 04 S2000 break 13.70s bone stock and do it consistently. Most do run in the 13.80-14.00 range though.

Around any curvy road course the S2000 has the R32's number no doubt.
