5. There is NOT a broad scientific consensus that these changes will be disastrous and life altering in the next 50-100 years.
6. There is NOT a logical reason for the United States to bear the overwhelming cost burden of mitigating said changes, as is proposed in almost all UN models and approaches.

You are totally missing all the points I was talking about.
TBH you did come off that way, and I just really didn't want to hear anything about the environment being mentioned in the same sentence or even conversation with motorsports PERIOD; let alone F1. That's all. Honestly the biggest disappointment for me is that I've never been able to go to a F1 race yet in my life, and one reason I wanted to go was to experience the sounds, and now that I can't do that it fucking sucks...might as well watch from home now as it's only visual now and that's a better from home anyway.

I don't really know, I'm guessing its just this specific car that is like that..
The fuel allows for tons of advance, but different cars want to see timing at different degrees. Why I have no idea, but these seem to be particularly finicky motors. My E88 wants to see advance and 14 degrees on the dyno wasn't even close to MBT, on the other hand it wasn't happy with a lot of boost midrange. Obviously a single turbo changes the boost end of the equation, but the fundamentals are the same.

Get it on a dyno and see where you stop making power, back off a bit, and that's that. Don't think i've ever seen an N54 push more than 15-16 degrees of advance, regardless of octane. E85 is very, very tough to knock on, which is nice. "

" Like any other treehugger David you'd rather deviate from the point I made and try to berate me for not knowing the ins and outs of F1 or attempt to make me feel bad for not feeling sympathy for our planet and the carbon footprint.

Global sport? Yeah...no shit it's global...when did I ever say otherwise? Just like every other leftwing nutjob you want to put words into someone's mouth to make yourself sound better and strengthen your argument. So F1 should lessen it's carbon footprint to set an example to others about mother earth and the attempt to lessen the effects of a theoretical global warming? Are you sure you're DavidV or Al Gore? I think I'll go buy a catless exhaust system for my truck now just because you've motivated me to do so. After all, Formula 1 is saving more fuel then I'd be using anyway. haha

I am clearly entitled to my opinion on the new sound of the engines. You can't tell me I'm wrong for that. I wasn't aware the fuel limitation came from the race teams and not the FIA, not sure I believe that TBH, but it doesn't really matter who made the decision, us fans certainly did NOT, therefore it would be better racing IMO if the teams didn't have to worry about fuel consumption, it's unsettling to hear a over the radio "we're out of fuel so you'll have to take it a bit easy to finish" seriously?

" Lots of work it will be. But now after seeing m5james supercharger not even line up with his heads wtf. So now I'm gonna have to take my intake off and see if the damn thing is gonna line up properly. The work to make this a good reliable working kit doesn't bother me but damn it's gotta match up with the intake bolts in the heads if not might as well hang it on a wall or put it on the coffee table for a conversation piece. For the price I expected much better work better instructions but hey if bolt holes line up its game on then I will make this kit work lol! Every body is probably scratching their head and laughing hey this guy is nuts it won't work lol well maybe I am but nothing wrong with wanting something different making it work and making it better "

He's not makin excuses for the sound at al. He states you get the fuck on with your life and get used to it.
The carbon footprint was a hint to the responsibility of F1 as a global sport (truly global, like all around the world. Not like, we alre the only country playing this sport, so let's call it World series).

Anyway

if this is the road F1 decides to go down, then it's only a matter of time till a better series of racing comes about.
Engine manufacturers Renault and Mercedes threated Formula One to leave if the engines were not more related to the engines they need for development. The manufacturers also self set the 100L/hour fuel limit to reduce the power made by the engine. "
