Racing on the highway in Brazil

Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

Driving at speeds up to 280 km/h on a crowded highway is not the key to immortality

I had to watch this video at least five times. I couldn’t believe my eyes. The irresponsibility of these people is just incredible. The Bandeirantes highway is full of normal folks driving their normal cars or normal bikes at normal speeds, then the two speed-bikes appear and the driver of the Audi R8 goes mental.

I probably shouldn’t be saying this, but it isn’t only an outrageous video. It’s also an amazing one. Just look at the way the V10 supercar handles at mind-bobbling speeds on the curvy highway. At 2:48 the driver of the 600 PS supercar gets so close to the bikes I even had to utter something I can’t repeat here.  

But no matter how great the Audi R8 handles or how fast the Kawasaki and the Suzuki are, these people are inexpressibly irresponsible.  They don’t just put their own cars or bikes and their own lives at risk. They‘re racing on a crowded highway. Should any of them fail, many other motorists could get hurt. It isn’t a good idea to behave like that. Not even if the uploaded video gets hundreds of thousands of hits or the whole rampage looks cool on screen. Life is not a video game.

Sprucing up the TDI engine – match them well!

Modifying the control electronics is just the first, and very basic, step towards getting more power from a diesel. This is what should come after.
