Actually- I just looked, I didn't do 1:2.  Its actually 2:3- not a
huge difference, really...

I took high school chemistry too, Phil :-)  My humble opinion is that
I don't think the heat capacity of the media is the only factor here-
I'll leave it at that, since I don't want this to turn into another
RS2-turbo or torsen thread.  If I get the time(no time right now), I
might look into the whole matter purely out of curiosity.  Besides,
lets argue about it at Watkins(you ARE coming, aren't you? I mean
hell, its practically your backyard :-)

Damn straight.  It's -blue- magic, silly.
