Jesus die rip ?
Damn hot! New Ford Fiesta ST facelift.
Don't you have an ST2?
Anyone have engine damage (or at least Oil Warning Light(red) illumination) when driving cars with stock parts like this IN REAL LIFE?
1. Emergency braking from high speed.
2. Doing tight turn*
3. Doing donuts or drifting(not shown in the screenshots.
* Not that tight TBH when taking this screenshot the tire didn't even screech
My old Escort, with low-end all-season tires on one end and studded snow tires on the other, could still corner hard enough on dry pavement to get an oil pressure light, though it never seemed to suffer any permanent damage for it. (Investigation after the fact showed evidence of oil sloshing out of the dipstick tube, which I didn't even realize was physically possible.) Local import shop says that Subarus in particular are absurdly sensitive to oil level, to the point that if you are down even half a quart from full and go around the wrong corner it can destroy your engine - this video seems to back that up. (Comments on that video say that a baffled oil pan is the solution.) My Veloster, on the other hand, seems to have a great oil system as it's taken all the hard cornering I could throw at it so far.
So oil warning, no damage.
Engine damage without oil warning light?? Also many comments suggest that the owner didn't change oil/check oil level before doing donuts.
IIRC one of the weakness of boxer engine is lubrication. However, the engine in the Sunburst is inline, how about Mitsubishi EVO?
Interestingly the boxer engine in the SBR4 didn't damage when the inline engine in the Sunburst did.

Planned obsolescence is environmentally hostile.
Today i did some work on the classic; Attempted to fix the alignment on the right wheel, couldn't due to the nut being seized; I'll most likely grab an oxy and just heat the shit out of it. Then got down to tuning (again), got it idling smooth and jabbing the accelerator linkage produced quick response without any stumbling, then tried pulling out of the car park, nearly stalled, took my foot off the pedal then slammed it down halfway. Result: Didn't stall nor got squashed by a large speeding truck, also of result (and much to the pleasure of my work colleagues who were also leaving) were copious amounts of smoke pouring out of the right rear wheel well. Thats something i didn't think this little engine could do, and that was only half the throttle ! Also then proceeded to pull over and fiddle with the tune again. Result: A fine running engine. Then shined up the tires and repainted the front lettering in non matching white paint to that of rear tires, which are in perfect condition. The fronts looked very old and worn however and why that is i dont know. Oh and bought T-bar shifter that came standard with floor shift sedans, the hatchbacks never came with one, instead using some little knob. it was as simple as slipping one off and putting the new one on. Result, looks way cooler, far more comfortable, and vaguely more accurate (will also upset the purists too )
Took me about four hours to paint the lettering
Meet the shifters:
Which do you lot prefer ?
How have I only just now discovered that Porsche makes a Panamera wagon?
Move over, S2000. I've got a new dream car!
I just discovered that now. I guess I'm even later than you

And apparently it's called the Sport Turismo instead of Wagon or Estate...
yes, with a whole extra 3cm of roof, and a 5th seat!
did you know there's also a taycan cross turismo?
We need more EV wagons
We need more wagons
We need more
Unless you have heard from me, my Clio is decleared a write-off. It had a lot of rust on the front axle and it almost split into two
Im trying to buy a very late model (1997) XV10 Camry thats for sale at only $1400, its got a 5S-FE engine in it and a five speed manual. Ya'll know of anything to be wary of ?
Relocating this discussion from update speculation:
Who ever said 2 doors was a criteria for a muscle car, or even American for that matter?
A Muscle car is a regular sedan or coupe (usually RWD) with a stupidly powerful engine and relatively minor handling upgrades.
jfc you too, eh?
Still going to die on this hill.
EDIT: "Muscle car is a description used for a high-performance American car, by some definitions an intermediate sized car fitted with a large displacement V8 engine."
Merriam-Webster Dictionary: any of a group of American-made 2-door sports coupes with powerful engines designed for high-performance driving
Keep going, but by definition you're just wrong.
You missed one other ingredient. Originally, a muscle car was an ordinary or even fairly bare-bones car except for its performance. This was to keep the cost down and thus accessibility up.
Now, granted, this definition can stretch a bit; pony cars could be considered a subset of muscle cars, some lineups allowed performance and luxury options to be combined, and of course the modern heirs of the muscle cars are relatively well-equipped. But I still refuse to admit some stupid fancy Mercedes is or ever could be a muscle car.
