Does dragging a wheel like that along the rail cause any damage to the rails themselves?

There's a lot of cats in my neighborhood, and they sleep on cars quite often. I always beep my horn before starting the engine, just to be sure.

That was his point. It's a weak point in the system, but it's still strong enough to hold up to almost any condition. And if someone does manage to break it, it's a lot better than a real internal trans/tc part.

Yup, mechanical fuse. Straight from the mouth of your friendly local Canadian jet turbine repairman:

I'm surprised injury lawyers haven't started putting ads on the airbag itself. Talk about a targeted audience!

At least in the US the hood scoop was trim level, not engine dependent. The regular Legacy (lower ride height, no roof rails, no two-tone paint) never had the scoop but all the Outbacks did. My 98 Outback has the scoop and it doesn't do anything besides look terrible because the plastic is sun damaged. It is real though, you can see daylight if you lift the hood up.

What was that? Looks like a wet-sleeve diesel dropped a valve.

Well, that's certainly impressive. Do I see signs of fatigue or is it all brittle fracture?

According to the post it was fatigue due to bad metallurgy from the factory. $630,000 in parts and $24,000/hour in lost income while that thing is down too.

Pff, can't hold a candle to VAG in that regard. I was pulling a Beetle into the shop for work one time, went to pull the door closed and the interior handle just cracked off like it was made of rotten pine wood or something, didn't even make the door move.

Everything inside a Mk3 Jetta does this in my experience. My friend had one where all the handles for the doors, the glovebox, the ashtray, and even the little knob to adjust the mirrors had just broken off. The coldest it gets around here is 40F.

Maybe not a car but definitely a hell of a failure. Probably also involved some goons.

This is from quite a ways back but my understanding is this is caused by a car with locked brakes coming to a stop on the tracks after being dragged a while. I don't think a train can even peel out. Maybe thats the joke...

We have Hitec QPSes in one of the facilities I'm at. Reaction time is near enough to be instant.....there are no battery backups on site. If there were straight diesel generators there would have to be batteries to account for switchover time. With the QPSes, the clutch gets dumped on power outage and is used to start the diesel. There is no transfer per se, as everything is being run off the alternator output all the time.

Does it sound like this when the power goes out?
