i always get a kick out of people who claim they can 'hear' knock while driving and will let off on the gas to protect the motor. by the time a human can actually 'hear' real knock, it's too late and the motor is probably trashed. the early onset of knock is not audible to the human ear while driving.

that's like saying someone can manually trigger each spark plug by pushing a button with every other crank revolution at 6000rpm. crazy talk.
