advancing the spark



a: Advancing the spark ~
b: your brain shooting a synapse

What: "Think of it like bicycle pedals. On a normal basis, your foot pushes down on the pedal at (just a guess) 40 degrees after TDC. Optimal power is obtained by pushing down at 35 degrees (again, just a random guess). So advancing the spark is like your brain shooting a synapse (hope that's the right term) and your foot pushing down 2 degrees sooner."
