blogentry-129174-0-83860400-1401107394_thumb.jpg MyCarForum held its second car clinic in conjunction with Stamford Tyres and Sonax over the last Sunday.



Close to 40 MCF members turned up in the early morning to attend the event held at Stamford Tyres' Headquarters at 19 Lok Yang Way.





The cars present were 'dolled up' with MCF stickers.







Members meanwhile enjoy a quick breakfast courtesy of the event organiser.



The headquarters is also home to two storeys of retail space, with a wide range of aftermarket automotive accessories to choose from.



The array of rims on display had a dazzling effect on members, especially those with a soft spot for aftermarket accessories.









Members' rides were also treated to a free replacement of spark plugs and windscreen wipers.





No prize for guessing which car this lovely 'heart' belongs to.



An ice-breaking game got the event started. Participants were asked candid questions to keep the mood casual and cheerful.





A representative from Continental Tyres then gave a product presentation highlighting the features of the firm's new models. The simple presentation also gave members a deeper understanding of how desirable characteristics of a tyre are achieved through the use of different materials and the design of the tyre's threads.





Three lucky MCF members walked away with a new set of Continental Tyres from the lucky draw too!







Last but not least, Davin from Sonax giving the members a quick demonstration of a proper car wash, wax and paint protection.



Car owners are advised to use a 'three-pail rule' to minimise the occurrence of swirl marks on the car's paintwork. Although this technique may not totally prevent any damage, it can substantially reduce the chances of scratch marks on the paintwork.



While many car owners have opt for resin or glass type paint protection, Davin explained that the gloss achieved with such methods is one notch below conventional car wax or polish. However, the tropical climate in Singapore means that conventional car wax will last only up to two months.



Davin also presented a new product from Sonax - XTREME Protect+Shine - which acts as a paint sealant. The sealant can last up to six months. The audience were impressed with the immediate effect of Sonax products on the paintwork, such as enhanced paint gloss and minimal water retention on the paint surface. This in turn will help to keep the car's bodywork clean over a longer period of time.



The event concluded after Davin's demonstration, with elated faces and more often than not, questions on when the next MCF event will be held.

    Driver races with a Hayabusa and spins out of control but recovers "initial D" style!

    Singapore has its very own Takumi! (The main character of Initial D, btw) A video of a car with unknown origins racing against a Suzuki Hayabusa has received over 40 shares under 5 hours! If you haven't already seen the video, here you go! The original video is from District Singapore's Facebook page.   What's happening? In the video, it starts with the Hayabusa abruptly cutting into the cam car's lane and causing the car to swerve and spin out of control. But, the car driver somehow manages to retain back control and continue on his merry way. The kicker? Image: New Initial D Legend 1: Awakening (Sanzigen, Liden Films, Sentai Filmworks) That's not even the best part! If you were observant, you would have noticed a bunch of coins on the dashboard of the car. Watch the video again. The coins barely move even with all the spinning and swerving! Very much like the cup of water Takumi uses in Initial D no? What the people say Hayabusa good siol Confirm There’s that possibility Lol I’m just glad no one got hurt.      



    The reason why people think Singaporeans are cheap

    A recent Roads.sg video of two men using super unorthodox techniques to fill up a gas tank has caught the attention of many Singaporeans. At the time of writing this article, the post has since garnered over 100 comments (I’ll share some at the end of this article) which are pretty one-sided.    Here’s the video if you haven’t already seen it. If you have, watch it again. It' bloody hilarious! Video from Roads.sg YouTube Channel Confirm Singaporean According to the Roads.sg video description, this incident occurred across the causeway.   Screenshot from Roads.sg YouTube Channel The owner of what we believe to be a 2016 Toyota Vios, is definitely a Singaporean. I can say this with assurance because I've pumped petrol in J.B. before and you only ever see Singaporeans do stupid shit like this while Malaysians laugh at us. The back of the car looks similar! Do you save money in the end? If you're not too familiar with what is going on, the logic is simple. Bubbles are formed when you pump petrol in your car and these bubbles take up precious space in your fuel tank that could go to more fuel. Therefore, if you shake your car, the bubbles will dissipate, allowing you to get more petrol and more savings. Alright, you might save a couple of bucks, but the repercussions don't make sense to me. Not worth it You will eventually wreck your rear suspension which is not cheap to repair. You look like an idiot You give Singaporeans a bad name You will kena caught on video like this guy and, everyone will know you for the wrong reasons What the people say The answer is nothing. You saved nothing. Pretty sure he is. Facebook comments taken from Roads.sg Facebook Page That’s funny af.



    BMW driver brake checks cabbie resulting in accident on PIE!

    A video submitted to Singapore Reckless Drivers and circulating on Facebook depicts an accident that took place along the PIE towards BKE after Steven Road exit around 9:24 am on 20 January 2020. In the video, you can clearly see that the BMW abruptly cut the Trans-Cab's lane. And then, this typical BMW driver decided to hit the brake to show his macho-ness. And due to some ego issues with the cab driver, they bang on each other. Here's the full video. Let this serve as a gentle reminder to all drivers out here! Please drive graciously this Chinese New Year! Don't risk you and your passenger over such trivial disputes. Anyway, there is a reason why BMW drivers are hated so much. Drive safe BMWs! 🙂  



    Man uploads video to shame DHL delivery driver, gets online backlash instead

    Here's a perfect example of how public shaming can come and bite you in the ass. In a recent video uploaded on Singapore Incidents' YouTube channel, an angry man chases down and confronts a DHL Delivery driver because the DHL driver allegedly pointed the middle finger at him. Here's the video if you haven't already seen it. In the video, the incident begins along the KPE when the DHL van does an e-brake in front of our angry man, who is driving behind the DHL van. Angry man proceeds to sound his displeasure with a couple of honks. Ideally, this should be the end of the story for most people. But, no. The angry man then proceeds to chase the DHL van like some road vigilante. As soon as angry man's car is parallel to the DHL van, we hear some cries of displeasure before he grabs his mobile device* (which was recording the whole incident) to capture DHL driver's face on video. *This is a chargeable offence by the way The video cuts off and jumps to the DHL driver sitting on the floor and speaking in dialect (Hokkien I think?) trying to justify his actions. It's not clear how they ended up out of their vehicles. Angry man then demands an apology from the DHL driver for pointing the middle finger at him. We think the finger-pointing might have happened when both their vehicles were parallel to one another (in the camera's blind spot). The DHL driver humbles himself and apologises in both Hokkien and English. But, angry man can't let sleeping dogs lie and submitted this video to shame the DHL driver. What the people say He should have just let it go after the apology and maybe he thought netizens would rally behind him. But, boy oh boy, was he wrong. What do you think?
