I was waiting for him to do a Mazdaspeed anything. I love the MS6 and the 1st-Gen MS3.

All I know is that he has a beard, from that one review where he goes off road.

>bother to review a '92
>don't review an LS-L

sad.gif

EDIT: Oh god that thing is trashed, ugh. Even mine was in better shape and it'd been through a wreck. The only thing this one has going for it is the trunklid lines up a little better than mine did.

Ugh. UGH. UGH!!

EDIT 2: He says this one is an LS-L...I guess the decklid spoiler was optional even though the LS-L was supposed to be the top-of-the-line-has-everything model...? blink.gif

EDIT 3: "North America never got manual versions of this car." No, no market ever got manual versions of this car. The current theory as to why is because Subaru knew that the EG33 was prone to overheating at high RPMs but didn't know why, so their solution was to use an automatic transmission to make sure that the car spent the majority of its life at lower engine speeds. Not to mention it made the car seem more like a luxury vehicle if it came standard with an automatic.

EDIT 4: "It wasn't the strongest Subaru made..." Not false, but the whole 'SVX transmissions are glass/terrible' is a myth perpetuated by people who don't know any better. You know, like the guy who said that NA never got manuals.

EDIT 5: HIS WHEELS ARE ON BACKWARDS ON THE FRONT Okay what the fuck, he's got ONE wheel on backwards and the remaining three are correct. wut

EDIT 6: His brake reservoir cap is popped, he needs to uncap it, pop the rubber back in and cap it back on again. That'll get rid of that red light on the dash when he's driving around.

No, I expect the owner to know all of those--as he was the source of information for Regular.

Not really.

Though its likely that the owner-base of a said car will stumble upon his videos about the said car and if his research (or lack of it) just isn't up to snuff to what that owner-base expects, then all i've got to say...

I forgot what caused the overheating issue with the SVX again. Was it the thermostat being too hot?

Incorrect hose connection sizes in the cooling loop. It appears Subaru added two cylinders to the EJ22 and figured that they didn't need to change any peripherals. Had a fluid dynamics engineer been on staff they would've realized that you can't do that because you've changed the entire system's volume and thus flow.

It's also why the rear two cylinders will get oil-starved while racing.

This week's review is a 2000 Celica GT-S.

YOUTUBE ( http://youtu.be/dE1jZ6dRJWU )


Honestly, I always looked at the Celica as just another FF, and I'm glad to see I was wrong.

To this day I feel bad about spinning ToyotaFan's GT-S on the touge. The car was undamaged and we were unhurt but I still can't shake the feeling that his disappearing from the forum was entirely my fault.

So yes, they can be quite tail-happy if you're not ready for it. Difference being that you can't use the throttle like you would on a RWD/AWD to fix it.

Obviously depends on chassis, but with the VW being the only FWD car I've ever owned, I'll say that you can definitely correct oversteer with throttle. You move the weight around and change where the traction is, and basically fix it with understeer.

It's not that you can't correct it with throttle, it's that you can't correct it with throttle like on a RWD or AWD vehicle. The actual process of correcting oversteer is different. If you try to correct like a RWD you will likely end up inducing snap oversteer in the opposite direction of the original skid.
