In the video when you go over some bumps it looks like something has broken off the motor. What was it that was just flopping around back there?
Incredibly, that was the fuel line. And that’s how it’s supposed to be.
Also on the topic of extremely shitty cars:
The engine was a 400cc 11.5 horsepower two-stroke Ilo unit that was designed to power a large circular saw which Ilo had a surplus of. Like the Mobius car, it drove one rear wheel by chain.
Cars usually power two wheels for a reason. Even the thought of accelerating caused the Wendax to twist violently and jerk to the right. It was probably the only rear wheel drive car to suffer from torque steer.
One dealer described his experience with the cars thusly, “After 3000 kilometers the couplings had to be reassigned, clutch and brake pedals broke off while driving as they butt-welded on a pipe goods. Due to a miscalculation in the fuel system, the tank of the small car could never be run dry, ten liters always remained. In a WS 700 should be broken from its hinges after 2000 kilometers mileage even the doors.”
