[MR2] Autoweek - Toyota's New Sports Car?

Fix-a-Flat plus one of those little cig-lighter compressors, I assume?
So, oh sagacious ones, what is the 411 on FaF suitability. I was under the
impression that this stuff flows around inside the tire and makes future
balancing very problematic, to say the least. Is that so? If so, do you
then dismount the tire and clean this stuff out? And if so, how do you do
it (solvent, etc.)?
Any brand-name recommendations?

If you remove the frunk trim and replace your spare with a can of fix-a-
flat you'll never use the trunk again. My frunk now fits way more than
the trunk. I love throwing my groceries in there. You get the strangest
looks. The trunk tends to get pretty hot and melt my frozen goodies
before I get home too. It also drops 60lbs off the car.

that the 3rd gen could do this.
