New Terminology

If SpaceX officials had their way, their recycled rockets wouldn’t be referred to as “used” or “spent.” Instead, a rocket that has been sent into space, recovered and refurbished would be called “flight-proven.”

I expect car sellers to use the term "drive-proven" or "road-proven" for their used cars. You heard it here first
(Mostly) Posted by Josh/AWE. Flapper valves are open at idle, close after 1100 RPM during part throttle. Full throttle 1st-4th gear the valves open until throttle let off. 4th gear, 1500 RPM to full throttle closed, closed until 3500 RPM, then open until lift off throttle.
