eas |The Smoking Tire/Tuned wraps up 2012 with VF Engineering!

It’s the final show for Season 1 of “Tuned” on YouTube’s Drive network. (Don’t worry, we’ll be back in July.)

Over the season the channel was flooded with questions and comments, good and bad. So, for this episode, Matt decided to sit down and address the most common, or notable, from each episode. So grab a beer and hit ‘play’, or if you aren’t old enough, three 5 Hour Energy drinks. Actually don’t do that. (please please please don’t do that, you’ll die and sue us). Enjoy, and we’ll see you in July.

Our VF620 Supercharged M3 enters in at 19:20 into the clip. For those that missed the original airing, we've embedded it here for your viewing pleasure:

Great piece of engineering on the M3, but the "rebuttal" video is lame. There was more time spent on watching video replay than on the whole discussion surrounding said "replay". Just seemed like a rant to complain about other people's rants. I got the feeling that the folks making the videos just wanted to have the last word.

A more positive direction might benefit them in the future instead of "hating on haters".. Might further engage the people watching the videos too.
