    Mitsubishi Evo 10 performs a timely pop and bang which literally smoked a salty cam car driver

    In the public's eyes, most often confuse/label Japanese sports cars as an 'Ah beng' car or an ordinary car that has been 'zhng-ed'. In Singapore, it is common for these cars to get hated by the public. Here's one such example: What Happened? In a user-submitted video, the driver/passenger of the cam car can be heard making some remarks about the blue Mitsubishi Evolution X in front of it. The remarks included a sarcastic attempt to mimic the Evo X's noise. Moments later, as the Evo X enters an expressway, it performs a quick launch, resulting in pops and bangs. Thick black smoke and flames could also be seen shooting out of its exhaust.  I must say that the 'smokescreen' was a rather timely response to the complaints coming from the cam car.  Illegally Modified? This might be the first question that pops into your mind for the uninitiated. However, the black smoke, flames, pops and bangs produced from the Mitsubishi Evolution X are due to the anti-lag system installed in the car.  Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the Mitsubishi Evolution X was illegally modified. However, there is still a chance that the car is 'illegally modified' if LTA thoroughly inspects the car.  For all you know, it could be labelled as 'illegally modified' due to heavily tinted windows.  Netizens' Comments Must be because cam car's first time experiencing pops and bangs.  NGL, Evo X is a nice car😍 Every day we learn something new.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Mazda driver with no skills gets stuck on a kerb after mounting it. How did he pass his driving test?

    Apart from the one time I saw an oversized trailer mount a kerb while reversing in Ubi, I have never seen any vehicle mount a kerb.  Oh, unless you count learning drivers mounting a kerb during their circuit practice, but that's another story.  Watch this absurd video of a Mazda driver mounting a kerb here: What Happened? This incident occurred at the drop-off point at Woodlands North Plaza. A Mazda 3 driver, who also happens to be a Private Hire Driver, accidentally mounted a kerb while exiting the drop-off point.  What puzzles me is how he mounted the kerb... From Google Maps, the lane for vehicles to exit the drop-off point is pretty wide.  Furthermore, the extent of the kerb mounting was not typical - it was to the extent that his undercarriage was stuck on the kerb! As a result, his car could not move and was stuck on the kerb (If only his car had All-Wheel Drive😆). Subsequently, the driver attempted to dismount from the kerb multiple times, but all he did was further bang up his undercarriage.  Well, it doesn't seem like he cares about the car since the Mazda 3 is a rental car to perform his duty as a Private Hire Driver. So, how did the Mazda 3 driver manage to mount the kerb? Simply because of his lack of driving skills, or was he distracted by his mobile phone? You tell me.  NGL, I chuckled when I first saw the video. The ridiculousness of the incident got the better of me.  Netizens' Comments The difference is one drive for a living while the other got his/her license <1 year ago. Regardless, both drivers CMI and do not deserve their license.  RIGHT? I mean it is not easy to get a kerb rash from rubbing against the kerb, let alone mounting the kerb to this extent.  🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    $500,000 GTR with $4000+ worth of parking fines tries to escape $6.52 parking fee

    TL:DR – The title says it all. The owner claims that he ended up paying the $6.52 in the end, and the accumulated fines were due to the inability to navigate slopes at the MSCP because of the GTR’s lowered stance.   When you drive an eye-catching car like a Nissan GTR, you’d better be on your best behaviour on the roads. There are digital eyes everywhere! Trying to escape paying carpark fees is not an example of ‘best behaviour’. Here’s the video for a weekend laugh.   Updates on SGRV While normal tailgating out of carpark videos can be mundane, this update piqued my interest. The fines Let’s have a look at the fines.   HOW IN THE WORLD DOES ONE RACK UP SUCH AN INSANE AMOUNT OF PARKING FINES? The whole argument that “Home MSCP too steep” is also somewhat weak. Park at an open-air carpark maybe? Does this car look familiar? So, we did some searching for GTRs on sgCarMart like we do every day (just to drool over things we cannot afford) and we found this: Compare that with the GTR in the video. I'm sorry this was the best shot we could get.... it's lowered after all. Do you think the hood vents on the body kits look somewhat similar? If they are the one and the same, that’s defnitely a creative way to ‘siam’ the $4000+ parking fines. Online Chatter Zero logic. Absolutely zero. Well, to be fair, he sent an image of the payment     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    MotoGP wannabe skids and crashes into a guardrail after maintaining a low angle while cornering

    An overconfident motorcyclist attempts to enter a corner at a low angle and ends up getting his pride (and his bike) hurt. In the early hours of this morning, a driver was travelling along the PIE when he noticed the dangerous stunt. In the video, a motorcyclist appears from the left of the cam car at high speed as both vehicles enter a bend. The rider maintains his speed as he corners the bend at a shallow angle. Maybe he’s trying to be like the MotoGP champion, Valentino Rossi? As the cam car is about to clear the bend, trouble strikes the overconfident rider as he starts to accelerate before the bend ends. The motorcyclist suddenly falls with his bike, which sends him across the road and into the highway guardrail. Luckily, the silver car in front of the cam car manages to stop in time, narrowly missing the rider by an inch. The video ends with the cam car approaching the smashed bike. The rider steps out from the bushes surrounding the guardrail, dusting himself off as he walks to his bike. Another concerned motorcyclist stops and picks up a mobile phone as he makes a quick U-turn to help the rider out. Looks like someone needs to get back to driving school and learn how to properly perform a corner.  Riding around bends For those who need it, the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency has a guide on how to safely ride a motorcycle around a bend.  Before entering a bend, riders have to judge how sharp the bend is and the speed at which they need to be travelling at in order to ride under control. Here are a few things one must consider when riding through a bend: Netizens’ reactions     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
