Ok, ok. I do have school you know and I just got back from the mall, but thats not important at all. Here we go. A semi-forged piston is a piston that didn't fully go through the forging process, making its strength in between a normal and forged piston, and also making it cheaper to manufacture.

Now for the counter-weighted wheel thing. If they taped a weight of some sort to the inside of the tire and balanced the wheel so that the weight was at the top right corner of the wheel and it didn't move, then got hit and moved the weight in the direction of the slant, the weight would make the tire go uphill. It would be a whole lot easier if I could show you my idea of it, but as of this moment, this is the best description I got.

It's been par for the course so far for him and spirited driver.

1. You're right, going to the mall is not important at all.
2. Sorry, wrong answer, tell your buddy if he's going to have you be his mouthpiece he needs to give you some better BS story.
3. That in theory is a correct and acceptable answer. I have never questioned the possibility of rolling a tire uphill and have actually carried it out myself in the past. My problem is with the angle of the ramp the wheel/tire assemblies had to travel up. I won't say it's impossible but I think it's very unlikely. There are a few other items in that video I think had a little "help" also, either physically or with camera angle.

As clear as only you can make it. Of course now we can sit back and relax knowing that all has be reconciled through your explanation.

Don't bother us now, we're going to the mall.

First off, you all need to stop with the asshole shit, its very annoying. Second, the top right corner of how the tire was sitting on the ramp. You knew that, you just have a sick obsession with having to comment badly on every god damned post other people put. Correction, "kids" put. And hobo, if I'm wrong why don't you enlighten me and tell me your explanation of a semi-forged piston. I love learning things too.

Maybe you and spirited driver just need to admit you don't know what you are talking about and it'll all end. Until then, suffer the consequences of acting like you know it all.

There is no such thing as a semi-forged piston, as was established days ago. But you know, I don't really care. The question is, has been and will remain, what is a somewhat forged piston. 8O

Funny how you seemed to miss the part of the post where I AGREED with you. I suppose that's typical though.

Would or could anyone on this forum explain to me or whoever, how you can semi-forge a piece of metal or composite metal? NOT PISTONS

Oh my ****ing god. You do not understand. You need to use common sense to answer your own question. Somewhat means 1 of 3, forged, semi-forged, or not forged. It's not hard to figure out. And no spirited driver did not tell me that one, nor any others. I can think for myself.

How 'bout doing a search at least on "semi-forged pistons" on Yahoo! or Google...see how much you come up with.
