damn, Wiley Coyote, good job!

I myself was going at speed and whacked a bird with my windshield. Can't believe this bird was flying that low...surprised the shield didn't crack, just green bird guts splattered all over the glass...

Some say that bird-intake mods add 5whp. A drop of blood in the S65 sends it into a blind rage of increased rpm.

The M3 got some serious suction. What a way to die.

I've hit several big ass rabbits in the desert here. They break the front underpan and the side pieces. Good thing they are cheap to replace.

Yes, and actually after I went full throttle, the feathers that were stuck and trying to come out of the vent then got sucked back in (indicating air flow in the opposite direction at WOT). Quite an interesting intake design, as others have pointed out.
