You just know some dumb prick took this literally and went to a garage saying " Yeah I want max swag so I'm thinking 90° camber and could you stick the shocks the little nickelodeon dog used?"

Your statement at ~ the 3:00 minute mark is incorrect. Carburetors were finally phased out around the mid-90’s. Not 80’s. I’m surprised no one’s caught that yet 😂😂

I was, kind of listening to this while working and I heard him say "blinker fluid"!?!? lol WHAT LOL! was this whole thing a joke? I hate when work distracts me from fun.
GhostyBBX Hace 12 días
Don't forget to check your muffler bearings and catalytic cables whilst you're at changing the blinker fluid. Remember! You can only check your blinker fluid with a left hand screwdriver!

the thing I need to know is how in the hell can car guys tell you every single part of an engine just by hearing the car drive by, I was with my buddy when a civic drove by and he could tell me every single spec about it like how lmao

LCA's Lower Control Arms, RC Rigid Collars, IHCE Intake Header Cat Exhaust, MS MegaSquirted(ECU tuned) This is a list for every car modder should know, Asking a modder if he MS'ed the tune after IHCE swap makes sense, asking a nerd if he MS'ed his car after a air filter change is weird lol. VE's,(Volumetric Efficiency) IAT's,(Intake Air Temps') EGT's(Exhaust Gas Temps) MAP,(Manifold Absolute Pressure) Duty Cycle, Spark+Timing, Disti anyone? Distributor Caps etc :P To understand VE's... EGT's.. Camshaft Valve Overlap -->CVO aka "Exhaust Scavenging", PAP Plenum Absolute Pressure vs MAP Manifold Absolute Pressure or Blueprinting(that has nothing to do with making a blueprint of your engine) those terms require lot's of reading, testing and understanding fundamentals how it all works together and I wouldnt expect a noermal/nerd person that just buys gas to understand it. Nice video tho this is a real neat idea.

First video I watched of Donut Media was because of Nolan. Saw it while browsing and the way he combines engineering knowledge , jokes and car enthusiast material so well, means I enjoy his videos out of the Donut selection. Yeah, I don't give a sh1te about power and "these badges". Enough folk chat enough bull about that. But the LSD and Transmission stuff gets explain in a good simple way and encourages you to learn more. Thanks Nolan and Donut Media. 👍🚥

When you was explaining horsepower back torque, the best description I’ve ever heard was from diesel brothers, “Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you when you hit it”.

Limp mode is actually when your transmission enters the 1:1 ratio, thus making it impossible to accelerate from a stop, but can be driven if it enters LM on the highway
