After all the sliding in Scandinavia the RS team is back in Saarlouis, Germany gearing up for production.

The team is getting worried, when pushed hard several of the RS development engines grenaded leaving them concerned about durability. We see launch control get dialled in along with the production line being made ready as the RS is about ready to launch to the world!

Check back next week as the RS is finalized and signed off by Performance chief Raj Nair.

Was hoping to see the engine grenade while testing but watching it go through production is ok too.
I think it might of happened while they were in the car not on the dyno. bad PR for your new hi-po turbo engine to be puking oil all over youtube LOL >:)

(but yea I would of liked to see it too)

"Is that it?"
"That's it"
"Wow, that is horrible"

I wonder what they where talking about?
probably a specific behaviour from the car. could be understeer, based on the scene, could be a flat spot in torquem could be a software issue sending torque to and fro...
