Looks much more promising than Top Gear America... although I wonder what the **** John Salley has to offer, other than blackness.

Someone has to give the Charger/Magnum/Challenger good reviews.

It is customary to watch the video in the post to see if op is serious or being sarcastic before posting replies. I happen to agree with you.

I was looking for my black flip-flops today, and I couldn't find them. I was getting frustrated that I might have to wear my brown flip-flops, which meant I was going to have to act like a bitch and change a lot of other stuff (black watch, black belt, maybe white shorts...)

Anyways, while I was looking, and starting to get frustrated, I remembered something from this thread that made me chuckle...

I want my goddamn pinwheels! I want my goddamn pinwheels! I want my goddamn pinwheels! I want my goddamn pinwheels! I want my goddamn pinwheels! I want my goddamn pinwheels! I want my goddamn pinwheels!

It was just a false nuetral, I didn't think that would blow the motor, but it did apparently. I thought it would just bang of the limiter a few times.

I didn't even hear a rev limiter.

From the initial onset of the over-rev, it really sounds an accidental downshit. I mean, that motor pegged really quickly. I realize that they don't have flywheels as such and are quite snappy, but that sounded like an instantaneous redline. Anybody with a Miata and sloppy engine mounts knows what an inadvertent 3-2 shift sounds like.

And to Bond's point, if it was a false neutral, isn't that what the rev limiter is for?

Seems suspicious.


EDIT: Almost forgot this was the pictures thread:

Thanks mazda, for using the worst quality ******* door locks you could find on the Gen III Protege.



They're over $130 each from the dealership and are guaranteed to fail.
