The next time the Federalies are hassling you, show them the gas flap. The
'89 200q shows pressure ratings for:  3 people slow (<125 MPH, 32 PSI/2.2
bar), 3 people fast (>125 MPH, 34 PSI/2.4 bar), 5 people (40 PSI/2.7 bar,
regardless of speed). "Mr Fuzz, sir, the car's made for it, with
H-rated/1/4-oz balanced BFGs, I have an SCCA license, and no one's around.
Just cuz you're driving a POS Caprice doesn't mean _I_ have to creep along
. . ." Worth a shot, anyway. =8~O

Alas, the 4kq is nowhere _near_ that ambitious.
