This b ELLEND, sorry young man reved the engine of this poor focus for 10 mins straight bouncing off the limiter untill it died and started to seriously burn.
 
I feel sorry for the guy in question though sort of think TSG club should have told him to cut it out this nonsense could have ended alot worse others have said it's not the responsibility of the club but really how does this sort of stuff makes a club look to outsiders?

They really thought redlining the car for so long wouldn't cause a problem?
What a Fist, and his club colleagues did him and their club reputation no favours at all.

Waste of what looked like a decent mk1.5

+1, what a tosser, they're still great cars.

 

Apart from the car being wasted, he got rewarded for his immense stupidity.

Gutted to know this moron lives just down the road. When I first saw the pics popping up online I thought it was an accident, rather than stupidity. Got a photo of the exhaust header glowing red before it went up in smoke. At that point he was told to stop by onlookers and told them he wanted it to go white... <_<

 

Feel sorry for TSG and all the people there with sense, there the ones getting the abuse for it. As if car meets in Aberdeenshire don't get enough bad attention as it is:(

jeebowhite

Some people are just born idiots, others have to work very hard to accomplish it.

 

I hope he feels like a right pratt, and if he doesnt, I am sure the rest of the car appreciators will do it for him!

jamesm182

What an absolute moron. He didn't quite deserve that but he was definitely asking for trouble in some way!  :blink:

Stoney871
I'd love to read the insurance report.

Sigh... Some people will never learn to respect what they have.

I'm hoping no one was hurt... As that would put this in such a bad light.
jeebowhite

I think he got just what he deserves! if your stupid enough to redline the motor for that long with no serious cooling systems in place, then your asking for trouble. And if your just going to wait for it to get hotter still...

 

I'm glad he set it alight, I hope his insurer refuses to pay out for being an eedjet, and he ends up footing the bill for his car, and the highway repairs!

I'd love to read the insurance report.


That little box won't be big enough for all his explaining, shame people can't look after things this is the ruin of Britain my generation can only break things and never fix anything, I would be too embarrassed to have even record that.

As far I know the bottom end went and parts from the crank came through the block, letting the oil leak onto the red hot exhaust header. After that he had no chance. Even if his plea for a extinguisher was answered, the damage was long done and he would have had little chance of fighting the fire.

 

Some people can't even afford to run a car, why anyone would abuse them like this is beyond me...

Stoney871
He'd be an idiot if he tried claiming on his insurance seeing as his actions are all over the web.
Add to that the inevitable Police report on the incident, if he tried then fraud charges could follow.
luke.grimbley

According to the local paper he's been charged relating to this. That is the local paper though haha ^_^

What a pity.
jeebowhite

I wonder what he has been charged for?

 

Driving without due care and attention? Antisocial use of a motor vehicle? endangering public safety with a motor vehicle?

 

Or under the catchment of being being too much of a fist to safely own a vehicle.

Stoney871
Unfortunately being the end of a bell isn't yet an offence :d.

Maybe public order and possibly reckless driving (even if the car wasn't moving).
jeebowhite

Shame that, I think we should petition to have the catchment of end of bell added as a viable charge!

 

I think your right on the reckless driving, he technically was in control of the vehicle at the time (even if his brains werent connected to his feet!) so I hope that he gets a right kicking for it!

FOCA

Mabee he is getting done for breaking the peace

 

Or intolerable cruellty to cars!

I'd be worried about doing that for even a few seconds.

What a complete burke, he deserves everything he got. Really doesn't deserve to be on the road

Shame he wasn't driving a corsa though :P

luke.grimbley

According to STV he has been charged with "reckless conduct"

 

Seriously doubt insurance pay out though.

jeebowhite

Reckless conduct. sounds like being an endabell to me :D

Apparently theres a few colourful words in there.

luke.grimbley

That's the legally correct term haha

 

The videos show the full stupidity. When I get home ill pop up the photo someone sent me of the manifold, it's definitely worth a look.

jeebowhite

I think its the one I quoted in the post above, post #21 on the other website. This one here:

Muppet.

Wonder what he thought when he saw the manifold glowing like that.

FOCA

Wonder what he thought when he saw the manifold glowing like that.

He thought "its glowing orange/ purple now - lets see if i can make it glow white hot"

Stoney871
The manifold was the brightest thing in that situation.
Turvey

Maybe he was needing to replace the manifold and he heard that if you heated it, it would be easier to undo the bolts?!!!  :ph34r:  :rolleyes:  :)  :)  :)

jeebowhite

Sadly Foca you banged the nail on the head as far as I know. His plan was to make it white hot, thats why half the folks started to get outa the scene before they knew what was going to go!

 

Clive, no doubt there whatsoever!

 

Kev, sadly I don't think he had enough sense to put the idea that it gets hot, the heat will spread! let alone that heat helps to undo the bolts.

gregers

think he over done the Italian tune up this time.

 

what a complete ar5e.

Stoney871
More tools than a Snap-On convention.
Stoney871
Or should that be strap-on seeing as there were a load of nobs hanging around?
jeebowhite

lmao nicely said Clive!

mixmasterlooney
Oic of the manifold looks a bit freaky I would not stand that close I do value my life.

Wonder if its he's the "waiting for a mate" guy
