2009 Wildfire WF650-C Start Up, Engine, In Depth Tour, and Brief Drive

In this video I give a full in depth tour to a rather unique 3 wheel 4 passenger vehicle knows as the Wildfire WF650-C. Powered by a motorcycle 650cc engine and a motorcycle chassis. I take viewers through the interior and exterior, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. I also show a bunch of the various features of the vehicle. This one was pretty trashed overall but a nice example of what the wildfire is all about and giving a better overall appreciation for the vehicle.

12 of the World's Smallest Cars
From a Record-Breaking Ride to Corbin Sparrow here are 12 of the World's Smallest Cars. Which car would you drive all the time? Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 6. Corbin Sparrow These vehicles became pretty popular in the late 90’s when they were first produced and even made their mark on pop culture in several ways. They chased Austin Powers and Beyonce in the third Austin Powers movie. A fleet of hatchback variants was created for Dominos Pizza that were nicknamed pizza butt. People could order them in a variety of neon colors. Due to several issues, including bad management and supplier issues Corbin filed for bankruptcy in 2003, ending production. The company managed to make 289 Sparrows while they were operating, 100 of them were made with this interesting jelly bean style body. Their 20-kilowatt motor produced the equivalent of around 25 horsepower. Its primitive battery took six hours to charge and had terrible range. They were around ninety-six inches long and 48 inches wide. 5. Buddy From 1991 to 2013 Buddy Electric sold about 1,500 units, nearly 1,100 of which were registered in Norway. The Buddy originated as the Kewet and starting in 2007 the car was manufactured under the name Buddy. Buddy is a basic electric vehicle that has a range of no more than 40 miles and a maximum speed of fifty miles per hour. With a length of only 96 inches, the car is legally allowed to be parked sideways in many jurisdictions. Two Buddy models are available, the ordinary Buddy and the Buddy Cab, which features a folding roof. 4. Smart Fortwo Made as a three-door hatchback or a two door convertible this car has a nine-gallon tank and is a minuscule 106 inches long and 65-75 inches wide. While its price is similar to the failed Mia Electric, it’s a little more practical. It’s zero to 60 speed is a little over ten seconds, and it has a top speed of 95 miles per hour. Daimler AG’s Smart division has been producing the Smart Fortwo since 1998. Newer models of the car have been paired with a lithium-ion battery that makes it very environmentally friendly. 3. BMW Isetta The brilliantly designed 1955 BMW Isetta was the top selling single cylinder car in the world with just over one hundred and sixty thousand units sold and became the first mass-produced vehicle to achieve the incredible gas mileage of 94 miles per gallon. The car was 90 inches long, 55 inches wide and weighed just 770 pounds. The Isetta was originally produced by Italian firm Iso SpA, who had been building refrigerators and small three-wheeled trucks when they decided to make a small car for mass production. The unique, egg-shaped car caused quite a stir when it was introduced to the press in November 1953. Initially, the Isetta was very successful, but sales started to slip thanks to competition from the Fiat 500C and the company’s owner, Renzo Rivolta sold it to BMW. 2. Peel P50 Listed as the smallest production car ever made in the Guinness Book of World Record the Peel P50 is a minuscule 54 inches long and 41 inches wide. The original production model came equipped with a 50 cc engine that sat along the driver in the cabin, which was less than comfortable. Now, however, there are optional electric motors available. The P50 has only one door and one headlight. The cars It also has no reverse gear, you simply have to hop out of the car and do it yourself if needed. The original version was manufactured from 1962 until 1965. Only fifty were produced and of those only twenty-seven are still known to exist. Incredibly, one of those was sold for 176 thousand dollars at an auction in March 2016. Peel Engineering started remanufacturing the P50 with better mechanics, including a reverse gear in 2010 and you can buy a new one to this day for around fifteen thousand bucks. 1. Record-Breaking Ride Sure the Peel P50 is tiny, but it has nothing on this car, which is also in the Guinness Book of Records as the World's Smallest Roadworthy Car. At just 25 inches high 2 feet 1.75 inches wide and 4 feet 1.75 inches long the car is fully driveable, though it tops out at 33 miles per hour. With no suspension the car is scary to drive, even going 30. It’s also not going to take you very far as it’s fuel tank has a total capacity of just a half gallon. It represents the fulfillment of a goal for its creator, Austin Coulson, who had been dreaming of being featured in Guinness for something automotive since he was a child.





What Happens To An Engine Without Oil?
What happens if your car runs out of engine oil? Watching Cars Warm Up In Infrared - https://youtu.be/n_CQzBc6GbM Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Watch A Mercedes Run With No Oil On A Track (Car Throttle) https://youtu.be/CfipRXooCTM Products Used: FLIR T1K Camera - http://amzn.to/2mgV8XS Affordable Thermal Camera - http://amzn.to/2j2gnNh in this video we’re going to be discussing what happens when an engine has no oil. As a demonstration, we’ll be viewing an engine with and without oil running. This is the exact same engine on the left and the right, on the left with oil, and on the right without. Both engines will start at the exact same time, but the video on the right was filmed 24 hours after the video on the left, allowing for the engine to completely cool. This is a 212 cc air-cooled single-cylinder Harbor Freight engine. There are five points we’re monitoring on each engine. Point one is the crankcase, below the level at which oil will rest. Point two is the top of the crankcase, where there obviously won’t be any oil resting near. Point three is the air-cooled cylinder bore. Point four is the Exhaust pipe exiting the cylinder before entering the muffler, and point 5 is the valve cover. This is a pushrod style valve train with overhead valves. Opening the crankcase reveals the permanent damage which occurred. First of all, look at the small amount of oil that didn’t quite make it out while draining. It’s quite dark, and this is after a 15 minute run with oil, and 15 minutes without, in a brand new engine. The oil which remained in the drained engine is clearly quite dirty, and actually it has quite a bit of metal content in it, as you can see reflecting as I move around the towel. Examining further, I removed the connecting rod cap from the crankshaft. This is the bearing the crank rotates on. You can see the scored, less reflective surface of the cap. Indeed, you can see the scratches on the crankshaft as well. I would expect to see similar issues with the camshaft and cylinder bore as well.
