    planned = prearranged/per-configurred
    setup=arrangement (e.g. for some experiment)

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    So, what's your idea about the concept of the phrase: "Running the car using the planned setup"? (I can't understand the concept of the phrase).

    Re: Planned setup

    You don't understand the concept of running a car using a planned setup?
    If you had a planned setup of five cylinders and a double carburetor using 95 octane petrol, would you understand the concept then?

    Re: Planned setup

    To me, unplanned is contradictory to setup. I just cannot imagine how an unplanned setup could exist. What could it mean?

    It's a text instructing measurement of carbon monoxide which is emitted out from the exhaust of a car...

    Does it mean that "planned" is the synonym to setup? so is there redundancy in the text?
