    Funny thing is, the local football team is the Big Red Pride. They wear all red. It makes them look smaller, it angers the other team, they lose alot. Red is not faster. Sorry.
    With people like Peter P. around, I am done posting on this website. Mean people have driven me off after 9 plus years. Good luck newbies beware.

    I want to get a custom red jersey where the back says, "If this jersey looks blue, you're driving way too fast!".

    Threads like this one are roll-calls for logically challenged.

    The linked article states that "faster is red" (in short), not that "red is faster". Get the difference?

    A better way to make your point would be to quote the actual article.

    Like this:


    "The data revealed that men who chose red had higher baseline testosterone levels, and they rated their color as having higher levels of characteristics such as dominance and aggression, than men who chose blue.

    Color choice did not, however, seem to be related to actual performance in the competitive task."

    Red is heavier also (for those weight weenies).

    Sports cars... they have to look good in red... red is synomous with Ferrari

    2009 Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er upgraded with 36T cassette and Stan's Arch EX rims and tubeless. Considering a 1x10 upgrade
