Check it out guys.....
I feel sorry for the owner of the car....
Do you know what the hell happened?
I didn't see wil behind the wheel.
edit... at least he can salvage the rims.
oh man....alll i can say is...OUCH...I would definitely consider suicide if that happened to my lude.
I think from what i read, it had to do something with a bigger turbo and beating the crap out of it while his buddie was filming..I dont know,,....
That was some guy name Stu' From Rochester. I dont know the guy but some of the guys here in Buffalo knew him.....They say he had a lot of money into the car....
I'd cry if that happened to me...Im getting an extinguisher tomorrow..lol
haha just don't be like that dumbass and wait until it spreads into the cabin before you start spraying it. He easily could have put that out had he started spraying it when it was just behind the intake Manifold.... instead he stood there filming it.
Nahh..I dont think he had one..I think someone else gave em the extinguisher.
But then again..Yeah..You might be right..I dont know..lol
O well too bad..............
i woulda cried
all it takes is one drop of brake fluid....
lol, i liked how the camera guy watched the whole thing..way to help out idiot. but i must say, those are some sexay wheels.
there is no way i would have watched my car burn without doing something
does anyone ese see this happening to my hatch in the future?
That completely sucks. I actually like GTi's so it broke my heart to see it die. :/
Or a drop of oil from the feed/return touching the manifold when its under 1600+ degree temps.
That looks to me like either something rubbed the firewall, and caused it, or maybe some sort of wiring short?
uhh, i would have started peeing on it or something, or ran to the hotel in the back, and jacked one of the fire extinguisher. but, fuck that sucks.
damn that was gutwrenchin...i almost teared up...lol....i hope he has insurance.....
agreed.i woulda sooner put the camera down and put the fire out
actually, it was probably an oil fire, cause that's defenitly not a fuel fire, it would have spread much quicker, an electrical fire he could have put out pretty easily. I'm pretty sure the turbo is under the intake manifold in the newer GTi's.
-Does a shitty job on the oil lines
-Oil drips all over DP, dribbles down
-Bye Bye GTi
I would have definately cried
pissin and cryin would have been my tatic
It is (and a complete BITCH to get too)
If it was me and I saw that I didn't really have a chance at stopping it, I would start ripping off as many parts as possible. Seats, steering wheel, ect.
WOW! What a moron, he could have so saved that shit from complete and utter disaster. My buddy has the same ride and is thinking of upgrading the turbo as well, I will defnitely tell him to watch this shit and do it right.
