    Hey I’m trying out this new video segment which would be every afternoon since I have a lot of questions leftover from the live streams. But I don’t have the time to add pictures for three videos a day, so let me know how you feel about an afternoon video every day but without pictures like the other videos, thanks for the support!

      @Enchantress S13 for sure, the s-chassis is a way better platform than the Subaru based GT86 because its cheap as hell to fix and is a tiny bit longer, resulting in you spinning out less, also the engines frkm the s1e and s14 are plug and play basically, you can swap an SR20DET from an S14 Kouki into a KA24 S13 Hatch with little to no hassle, the GT86 is still a new car compared to the S-chassis cars so the aftermarket for a GT86 isnt nearly as big as the aftermarket for an S13

      Scotty serious question, I've heard that before that most wear comes from start up, but isnt that just cold start ups and warm up cycle? My thinking is when the starter engages its just like revving up the engine to 1200-ish rpm, if anything it probably wears out the starter faster, and maybe even the teeth a little but, just a little. Side note, give GM/Buick alittle more credit, I cant drive more than 5 miles without seeing a buick century/ lesebre, those things run forever, with dented bumpers and peeling paint, they are incredible reliable. (other than the L36 plastic intake XD). I love your videos though, keep it up!

          That start/stop thing is stupid. People think it's like a hybrid car. It's not even close to the same mechanism.

                              Could have something to do with the army of mechanics on hand awaiting any problem, wrenches at the ready. Gas in a race is precious. Wear and tear, not so much.

                                The second most stupid thing in the UK and Europe is putting diesel into a petrol engine and vice versa.
                                The stupidest thing is simply driving in an overpopulated dense build European city.

                                            I have a 12 tacoma 2.7 4x4 with a 115,000 miles n tow about 2500 routinely and it has zero issues. It is a slow truck empty, i will def admit it only get slower, but it handles it just fine n its the perfect truck for me. I chnage the oil every 5000k n i use mobile one full syn high mileage n either k & n filter or mobile one filter but always k & n filter in the winter. Any ither filter in the winter n i notice is knocks hard (toyota knock if u will) in the morning on cold days here in pa while the oil is warming up but doesnt at all with a k&n oil filter so it worth it to me.

                                                Auto-start stop, automatic-brake hold and automatic cylinder deactivation kept many buyers out of modern cars. Just a control thing we gotta have.

                                                        Hey Scotty I see quite a few performance cars with cambered out rear wheels for better handling.I cant help but think the inside of the tire will wear out faster. (Like a lot) Do these people realize what they are doing? Or are they buying tires with extremely soft sidewalls?

                                                            The cost of repairs for parts that increase mpg are probably much more than just having lower mpg.

Based on a typical mileage of 25 mpg for a car of that type, that means a 1 mpg improvement. Does anybody really think all that complexity is worth 1 mpg? It's all for Chrysler' benefit (raising their corporate average mpg), not for the customer who's paying for it.

The worst are at around a litre/1000km. Still VW claims it's normal fuel consumption. I wonder how burning motor oil can be ecological...

I have Daihatsu Mira Cocoa 2014, It has an idle engine RPM around 1700 when I start the engine and after some time it settle down to 1200 which is high from normal. What could be the problem?

It had those plastic intake manifold gaskets that got eaten away by that dexkill coolant gm sells. Was my first car, ended up selling it and bought an f150 after 6 months of driving it.
