When looking in the papers or listening to people talk about cars there is always the worry that a car has been "thrashed". I started this thread to get a general idea of what people considered "thrashed". Personally, i consider a car that is over revved when cold, excessively driven past three quater throttle, never serviced and continuing driving with faulty or broken components. + Burnouts around every corner However a car that is occasionally used for "legal burnouts" maybe one sunday a month or less. Has regular services, and any sign of a fault is quickly attended to and driving past 3000rpm is kept to a minimum. is not. The ideal situation however is a car driven how the road rules stipulate commonly refered to as "female owner" in our respective trading posts. What constitutes a thrashed car.... your thoughts.
