This is why power is nothing without control

This is why power is nothing without control

We always hear the phrase "power is nothing without control" 

In this latest blog post, we now can show you exactly what that phrase means.

Shared furiously among many Whatapp chats is a video of a recent accident involving a Nissan R35 GT-R losing control in one of the tunnels of the CTE.

The matt silver GT-R which does not look stock at all, should be producing quite a bit more than the stock 480bhp (an remap will easily bring the power figures near 600bhp).

It can be seen barreling along the tunnel on 11 July 2020 at quite a high speed before losing it all and smashing into the rear of a Mercedes-Benz CLS350.

What did you think made the driver lose control of his AWD GT-R? Could it be a case of malfunction on the car that caused the car to go bonkers?

I think the GTR driver panicked when he saw a “slow” moving Merc CLS ahead and lifted off his right foot too abruptly.

The comments posted here about taking bus or buying an instructor vios actually reflects the troll-like manner, shallowness and the lack of awareness of these people. They are probably the same group of folks that will panic and crash their vehicle if the same situation occurs to them....if they even have a driving license to begin with.

 

For most of us car enthusiast here, this is actually a good case study to try to understand what went wrong and what did the driver do to get himself into this mess, so that we will not fall victim to similar situation.

The GT-R is a capable track car with an AWD drivetrain, a very stable machine. It should not fishtail like a RWD as seen in the video even if the driver lift off the foot suddenly..... unless the GT-R is actually rear wheel biased. (Is it?) If even so the Traction control should kick in to mitigate the fishtail.

Which begs the question which may answer to why it crashed:

  • What tyres is it running on?
  • What is the road condition? Some slick tyres run very well on dry but sucks when go through some wet puddles.
  • What did the driver do, did he let go of the pedal, or hit the brakes? Is the steering straight or turning?
  • Is traction control on? if yes, is the GT-R modified to the point the traction control cannot compensate the higher than stock torque?

GTR is RWD biased.

Once tyre lose traction, no amount of electronic nanny will help.

From what I've heard, a lot of young heroes think it's cool to drive on the roads with stability and traction off. They think it proves they're fantastic drivers or something like that. 

Now see lah. Hero to zero in 3 seconds.

Track, you can dial down the driver aids as much as you want. Road conditions are unpredictable.

Yup, maybe they're more suitable for this

    Not sure how to parallel park? Here's a guide if you need a refresher

    If you find parallel parking challenging, here's a step by step guide to refresh yourself if you feel like overcoming your fears. Seen on ROADS.sg and contributed by Syed Al-Qudree,  this very comprehensive guide even though some might argue that it is not easy to judge the distance between the front car and yours when you are pre-positioning in Step 1. Do you think the guide is helpful?

    Silly cyclist crashes into stationary van

    A van has been injured in this accident due to a cyclist's silly carelessness. Jokes aside, this is quite an unfortunate incident whereby a cyclist smashed into the back of a Toyota Hiace van which was stationary along one of Old Airport Road's traffic junction. The accident happened in the wee hours of the morning, with the cyclist apparently beating a red light at the previous junction as traffic was light. With the need to go as fast possible, he likely chose keep his gaze low on the road to be as aerodynamic as possible without realising that the van that he was about to crash into had actually stopped at the upcoming traffic junction.  Thankfully, the cyclist survived but he sure looked quite messed up. We hope he recovers well! P.S. SG Road Vigilante's video thumbnail might be slightly disturbing for some. Viewer discretion advised!

    LTA can come into your home to check on your car!

    If you think your loud-sounding car is safe from the authorities just because you stay in a private property, you might want to think twice now. A photo of a Ferrari 488 GTB being inspected inside someone's front yard has been circulating around in most car group chats over the last weekend.  From what we understand, it is almost unheard of for LTA enforcement officers to venture into a non-public area to inspect a car that might be flouting the laws. While we are unsure of the reasons while this particular Ferrari is being looked at, we reckon the reason might be neighbours who are unhappy about the loud exhaust noises emitting from the car. On a side note, those who are in the know will wonder why the officer is looking under the car when its belly is all covered up... Check out what neitzens on SG Road Vigilante have to say about this. Let us know if you agree!

    BMW goes off speeding donning another car's licence plate!

    We thought things like this only happens in the movies but as it turns out, there are people doing this in real life as well! As seen on a Facebook post by SG Road Vigilante, the owner of this red 7-seater BMW 216D Grand Tourer wrote in to the page claiming that another BMW 2 Series in a similar shade of red has been using their number plate, chalking up fines they were not responsible for. However, this red 2 Series is a 5-seater variant that is called the Active Tourer and it looks largely similar as you can see from the screenshots taken from BMW Singapore's website.

    Reproduced below is an extract from the rightful owner of the plate SGX821M that was in SGRV's post.
      Hi, I was notified that you posted a video back in July on a speeding car with my license plate #SGX821M. I would like to highlight that THAT is not my car. Someone is impersonating us using our license plate. I drive a 7 seater BMW 2 series while the car in the video was a 5 seater 2 series. We were issued fines that we are not responsible for. AND my husband literally drove past the idiot this morning bearing our license plate while we were dropping our kids off to school. We couldn’t give chase because we were on opposite sides of the road. I have lodged a police report and have notified the LTA. We are awaiting investigations. If you happen to see the car, please help update the police on its whereabouts. Check out the video of the imposter who was also featured on SGRV before.
