Default Old Top Gear = hilarious

Does the test driver sound like a commercial pilot covering safety procedures? Mahzdur? And that revlimiter buzzer contraption is enough to make the driver want to choke someone. And the bodyroll? Holy ****.

That was a great find. It is amazing how much better performing the cars are today.

I hated the buzzer, I always thought it was the horn. Can people outside the car hear it or was it my imagination?

My brother owns a shitty N/A FC, he tells me about them all the time. Supposedly the engine is so easy to rev they had to make the buzzer go off at 5k or whatever so you didn't over rev it.

Thats what he told me, no idea if it is true. His car is seriously riced out though, so I doubt thats the reason.
