It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out that handing the keys to an M3 and sending him out on a twisty desert road will not end well. Add in a GoPro and you have a recipe for a record of the impending disaster as the kid attempts to prove just how fast he really is. In this teaser clip from an upcoming episode of Mischief TV, we see just how badly this scenario can play out on a road in rural Arizona.
A few months ago, we introduced you to that fellow we all know: the Nightmare track day student. That wonderful little creation detailed how the conversation often goes when instructors encounter an overly difficult student.
We all know the instructor in that case was on his best behavior. Now, thanks to the creative mind of youtube user blahblahblah55209 we can hear what he really thought!
Video after the break is very NSFW, nor should the kiddies be anywhere within earshot.
Once in a while you come across a statement that is so terribly funny that it can only be called EPIC. The following quote comes from the Cobalt SS Network, from a sadly misinformed enthusiast. One can only hope that he learns something from the 20 pages of comments.
So we all know that the supercharged engines need the intake bypass valve so they work in reverse. Otherwise the supercharger would just suck all the air out of the cylinder. So knowing that, how does the turbocharged version work in reverse? The engine is trying to suck air backwards, yet the turbo wants to spin forward so I don’t see how it works. Is there some sort of exhausting intake bypass valve on the turbo version? Also, if it does have the valve, does that also mean that it can make boost in reverse? Like how much boost? Like 5 psi or does it go over 20?
Can anyone help me sort this out?
Of course it gets even better when he pops up again on page 2
wow, lots of replies already, thanks guys
Real reason I’m asking because a friend is getting a 93 Corvette and he wants to race me. I said we can race to 30 mph because I think if I go from reverse I’ll get better weight transfer and beat him, but I’m concerned about making full boost since the turbocharger will be spinning backwards.
I damn near shot my KFC lunch across the room a second time after I read that one!
