Yeah, that's a sweet video.
Just came across this on the Lotus 7 site, much hilarity:

So these chumps thought their 4wd Impreza could actually do some 4wding:


Funnily enough they had to get towed out.
Multiple facepalm warning.

Not a car as such but it contains some car

I predict it will be STUPIDLY FAST, if it's ride-able...

Car engined bikes are always an odd combo. Would have never considered a Subaru turbo myself. The added engineering of the suspension/steering somewhat overshadows that challenge.

If you are after a balanced looking engine then the K3 935 Porsche from the Mid 70's always looks good. The engine brace sitting at the height of the hubs.

How to wreck an F1 car 101?

How many air filters can we use for a 6 min clip?

I do not understand :eh:

Sweet! Only a couple of minor power-down issues there. he end of the video where it says "F1 TExas, we're ready, are you??" almost makes it seem like that's just how the track's gonna be!

Entirely unrelated, but WTF??? Seriously??? A Probe with a rollcage???
