    Segueing from Segway... :twisted:

    It's not a skateboard. It's not a bike. It's not a scooter.

    It's a hoverboard. Except it doesn't exactly hover. And it's not really a board.

    It is a never ending moving walkway. Doesn't that sound like fun? :rolleyes: Careful out there!

    Strong contender in my world. Post "liked" times 100!
    But its not just the Triton. Seems more like all versions of the Modular motor family. Four or more major design revisions on cylinder heads largely focused around the spark plugs, equals four or more design major revisions with different but major problems focused around the spark plugs.
    Severe problems. In a design where changing the spark plugs feels like what I describe as "searching a box full of rusty razor blades looking for a quarter"

    And the coils are highly prone to failure long before the spark plugs are due for replacement too. That is if its not an early variant where the plug issue is more often than not the engine just spitting them out, coil and all.

    Oh but it gets better. Lets put the v10 variant in an E-150 van! Awesome!

    Theres other problems with the engine family too, but thats a doozie.
    I rant, but damn.... I hate these. Passionately.

    Still, worst invention in a hun?
    Theres a lot of competition for that title.
    But still...... Strong contender. :cool:

    Certain there will be replies from those owners with over 200k on theirs. I'm happy for them. But......

    pay toilets/token toilets were/are a pretty bad idea. I dont think not having a dime is going to stop an evil one from taking that nasteeee dump just about anywhere convenient.
