Default You guys have got to see this Honda Commercial!

It was filmed in 2006 and took 606 takes until they got it right. It's very amazing, took no special effects, and is simpy a brilliant work of japanese engineering...

I was wondering about the wheels rolling uphill...
heavily weighted at the top of the wheel?

You can tell by the acceleration where the weight is in the tire. Watch it closely. If you've ever seen a ball roll with a weighted spot (say a ball with a heavy filler hole) it moves the same way.

That is awesome, the only thing i dont get is the wheels rolling up with such little momentum.

Total boredom...
List of parts in order of appearance:

3 gears - not sure which, looks like one is a crank gear?
car jack
not sure what's under the cam shaft - too blurry
cam shaft
exhaust
crank shaft
hood
rim
valves
crank bolt?
dipstick
valve cover
radiator
not sure what's under the wheel - looks like it could be water pump?
wheels
2 rotors bolted together
strut and brackets?
wiper assembly
rear seats
flywheel?
oil
bushings
bottom end
cylinder sleeves
piston
cant tell what's in the middle
battery - looks like a valve on the terminal
head
fan - doesn't look like cart is part of the car, but back kinda looks like a wiper arm
not sure what's at the bottom or what the pole is, but the squiggly thing is brake line or fuel line
bushing?
muffler

OK, I lost interest...too many damn parts. Maybe someone else is bored and wants to complete

I figured the large masses of the Miata turbo community doesn't really check the subcategory BS thread whatever we call it, haha.

the large masses of the miata turbo community are not dumb. some small numbers apparently are.

here's a tip you can use after I move your thread.

click the little "new posts" link at the top of the page next time you visit. oh my it shows all new threads, no matter what section!
