You ever lie awake at night and dream of an indestructible tire, capable of handling whatever rocky terrain that gets in your way? No? You think I have a problem since that's the only thing that keeps me up at night? Who knows, but luckily for me, my nights of restlessness will soon be coming to an end thanks to NASA. They've engineered an airless tire that could save you from spending money on those expensive rubber tires, and also curtail my sleepless nights. The Superelastic Tire. Silly name, I know, but this tire could change tires as we know it. Let's see how.

  • Wheels are dumb on anything that's not a cool speedy boi car like a striker mgs with a massive gun ontop but tracks are better and I don't think u would have many issues on mars it weighs so little that you cant break it

  • The 2jzgte vvti gtus is going back to 13b rotary! I have found and saved the rarest Mazda FC RX7 ever made! Now this car is rare. Really rare! Let me break this down really quick... Ever heard of the rare 100 GTUs rx7s? Only 40 have ever been claimed and only 15 are confirmed at the time of this posting! Here are the rarest rx7 FC3S models: 1500 10AE Turbo models 1400 infini 1000 winning limited 150 final edition convertible 100 GTUs... out of that 100 they made three color options: red on black black on black white on blue There was only 100 GTUs models created between 1989 and 1991. If you own one of these rare models sign your car up to the registry list here on any of the rotary forums! There are rumors about a restamped GTUs model... The entire origins GTUs owners thread on the rx7club was modified, icemarks claims deleted, registry list changed to have a confirmed section and the mods agree there are not enough GTUs models to have the restamped. If you want the full story behind the restamped models: If you have a real GTUs you can register it here:

  • Hi can you please do a review on the RVS engine oil treatment. Apparently they ran a honda civic with no engine oil for 3k kms with no issues. Claims: RVS integrates with the original surface creating a mirror-like Triboceramic surface on the friction zones of mechanisms. As a result a worn mechanism is restored to near or original specification due to friction decreasing with tolerances and compression restoring to, or close to original specification. Would love it if you guys could do the test they did and show the engine teardown after 3k kms Thanks, love your content man 👍
