Re: quickest killer

I guess there are many ways to kill an engine. A few years ago my business partner's new GMC cargo van was vandalized several times. The van would not run on all cylinders so he returned it to the dealer under warranty. The fuel injection system was gummed. Three times this happened before the dealer had the gum analysed. Turned out to be sugar. Each repair included new injectors and flushing the fuel tank. He was lucky the dealer did these repairs under warranty.

My partner installed a locking gas cap. Next, they slashed his tires. This was all because the van was legally parked in front of his house on the street. But it made it difficult for trucks to enter a factory across from where he lives.

Personally, I wouldn't give that info to someone. Sounds like trouble brewing to me.

Yeah, you're right Fonz. But after I posted I did not/do not know how to edit or remove the post.

Yeah, kinda sucks not being able to edit your own posts. (I can't either)
You could PM a mod and see if they will delete it for you.

I guess you'll have to investigate elsewhere. If anyone else on here has much to there name, they won't give the info either.That's just my 2 cents and I stand firm in my opinion on this matter. Nobody should be doing this to anyones vehicle, period. No matter the reason.

Re: quickest killer

Hydraulic lock will kill the engine as no liquid can be compressed.
A mate of mine used to have a toyota corona paddock basher. It had the 4AC motor with the single cam and a tiny carby. And we decided to give the engine a good flogging, but to our suprise it was a stupidly tough motor. We filled it up with petrol and took it rallying for the day. It was manual and we'd drop the clutch at any rpm and get some good 3rd gear burnouts out of it. But after a couple of hours of rallying it still wouldnt die. We ended up stabing the oil filter with a screw driver, drop all the rusty coolant out of the engine and left a brick on the accelerator in neutral for about 10mins. A conrod punched a hole in the side of the block but the engine still kept going, barely running though. So to kill the engine I poured water down the carby and it died.
With the water in the engine it instantly died from hydraulic lock.

AU1 Forte - 17'' AU2 Tickford rims on all corners, Super low springs,
KYB shock absorbs + camber castor kit and a 3.45 LSD.

Re: quickest killer

annually i have a meeting at my place (i live on a farm)
and we create our on bathurst on bathurst day!
i have a massive shed and we set up a projector showing the race and during the day all my mates bring up cars to race arround my 1/2mile oval speedway track so mutch fun you cannont believe!
the engines we find the hardest to kill are either those toyota corrola corrona engines or the good old holden six!!!
we have had 202's run for ages with no water round the track and they will eventially stop but let them cool down and they will most certainly start again!!!
cheers
