Toyota and a whole bunch of other cars are sludging up. What the heck? Saab extended the warranty on their cars for sludging. Full synthetic keeps it from happening but who is going to run full synth in the Corrolla grocery getter.

Oh, and the tire thing is amazing. Had no idea a full racing tire would distort that much. Had no idea it would spend that much time off the ground.

Damn, that's a crazy video!

I wonder what my 50series tire is doing when I'm drifting!

Hmm i see now about that engine sludge issue...that is quite the suck.

It raises a lot of problems for me actually as I had planned on potentially swapping a V6 Avalon/Camry motor into my Girlfriends MR2 as a good cheap swap option. Engine sludge though is no fun to deal with and it seems pretty rediculous.

Easy, ratings. Show NASCAR and every Redneck will tune it in. Put on REAL RACING and only the true motorsport diehards watch. I think having to turn both left and RIGHT is just too complicated for alot of them.

yeah I'm southern but I hate nascar. I prefer formula one or world rally. I don't even like indy because its Americanized formula one and the biggest race (indy 500) is once again on an oval track. PINKS is good to watch just to laugh at that dumb-*** host.
