During 3MA12, an international group of car maniacs made a scientific breakthrough in starter technology. The product, first christened the ISS (Ineptitude Starter System), was renamed to MMS (Modular Mirafiori Starter) in order to not be confused with the International Space Station. The MMS consists of one (1) to ten (10) modules, depending on surface slant, air temperature and engine temperature. The system is shown here using three modules that can cope with a light slant, an ambient temperature of 12 degrees and a cold engine:


Picture 1: Starting up the MMS


Picture 2: Under full load


Picture 3: Starting sequence completed, engine running!

We observed that an English MMS usually needs less modules to achieve the same result, but no general rule can be established from this observation.

Although the experiment was a huge success, the owner of the test object will try to install a modified conventional starter, claiming this makes him more independent of MMS modules.
