              Apexes fucked, sad. It's losing pressure as hell, from what I hear, the engine doesn't run in all 4 rotors... sad situation. Hope you fix the problem.

                  Not only does it sounds like a 2-stroke it's getting a healthy dose of pre-mix too!

Aside from the fact that you may have been sponsored by your turbo manufacturer (not speaking from facts, but guessing based on past videos.). 4 rotors and great tuning, the car should be much more manageable and different to the most other content out there. Just a thought anyway.
