    So not true , the car is capable of going faster , the driver is the limiting factor

    Tech is always being pushed farther and farther and to make use of the faster car you need to train even harder.

    Sorry I walked home and forgot about this :eek:

    The human is producing the power in the rowing, not a engine. The boats and paddles are there to supplement the power to get the desired performance.
    But the power comes from the person

    Drivers on the other hand supplement the engine, and no power comes from them. The only reason they are able to do what they do is because of an externally generated force.

    He was just a lying cheater who forged a story to fulfill his uniball fantasies :rolleyes: but he was the the thing that produces the energy to do the activity, with aid of banned substances of course which goes off in a whole nother direction.
