Here's a video for the nerds and geeks among us:

 

Cool video, thanks for sharing!

 

For those looking for further reading on this subject, check out "Variational Methods with Applications in Science and Engineering" by Kevin Cassel. Pages 47-51 show the variational calculus solution to the problem. The whole book is devoted to optimization problems in many fields, solved with variational calculus.

 

Here is the TL:DR version of the brachistochrone problem:

The book doesn't mention turbo charger or E36. I think it's wrong.
