I had one on a late 60's Rolls-Kinhardly and it made a big difference in performance over the micro-adjustable kinnipsion spring unit the PO had installed...

Funny. Those are the most made up $10 words I ever heard. Had me going at first.

Lmao @ "dingle arm". That would have been perfect for a Dan Aykroyd SNL skit.

Wonder how he kept his face straight. We have commercial going on the TV right now in which a garage-owner is doing an similar explanation to an owner about the maintenance of a car.

I'm not going to display it here because nobody will understand it :D

I can't see the video because I'm at work, but I can only assume it's the Turbo Encabulator video. That shit is classic! ...Sinusoidial reverberation reducing the dampening effect of the transverse dingle arm to the gramdibular sprocket....

I can't believe they've posted a GM training video on youtube.

We use some of the encabulator lecture terms to dazzle our road race competition: "Marzell Vanes" are the guide dividers in the underbody rear diffuser (whoops, I'm starting to sound like the narrator!) and the "Cardinal Grammeter" is the 0 to plus/minus 10" H20 Magnehelic gauge we use to measure the ground effects suction level. [Cardinal meaning first (and only) and grammeter meaning the underbody area times the negative pressure equals kilograms of downforce.]

Sounds like it would work great in politics, too.

Sounds like a medical school teacher. All the so called high up professions have to have a language that only they can speak. So cool now we have the same for mechanics.

At the other end of the scale, due to the diverse makeup of our crew, we had to invent universal terms for handling balance: "UTP" is Understeer/Tight/Push and "LOF" is Loose/Oversteer/Free.

Mine worked better when we used a platinum wound tertiary zirconium fetzer module.
