    Haha, that's pretty bad! Compensation is in order!

    Saying that though, the new Seat Ibiza has an option for a 1.2l 3-cylinder engine. It's for economical purposes but it's a shame they'd let such a sluggish engine go into such a sporty looking car!

    Thats incredible, i guess its just been taking in small puffs of fuel and then had it sucked out by the exhaust gasses in the manifold. And if its so well balanced at high speed the top of the rod might have been centrifugally balanced?
