    Well I know this is nit-picking but for those of you who are in the car hobby as I am, or even watch any auto racing you know the sound of a V8 engine. As I was looking at my Animated Lockdown I noticed he only has 6 exhaust pipes which would mean he has a V6 engine. But if you listen to the cartoon that's clearly a V8 engine sound. /end rant

    I'd imagine the sound guys just pulled a car sound from the sound archive and figured "that sounds about right". When you consider how many sound effects are needed in an episode, they've probably not got the luxury of cross checking every sound effect.

    Actually... does the fact that the toy only has six exhausts actually mean that it it only has six cylinders? What does that say about a car with only one exhaust?

    I remember my dad had an old dodge V6 with only one original tailpipe. He sawed off a second one and screwed under the car to make it look like it was a dual exhaust!

    Considering he doesn't even use his 'engine' really. It's just part of the alt disguise, or he the character likes the sound and effect, it's rather moot.

    exhaust tips dont give away the engine size. My neon has dual exhaust and its a 4 banger. The lambo LP640 has one tip but is a 12 cylinder

    WIN! lol. I'm a huge car guy so I notice this stupid stuff. But regarding all the cars with single exhaust tips but more cylinders I see your point but realize this. the exhaust style on his car mode is like a hot rod, which imitates a fighter plane. One exhaust pipe for each exhaust port on the block. Like in this picture.

    it has 6 on each side or 12 in total, meaning its a V12 engine.

    Uh question for Ms. Bellamy. In episode 2F09, when Itchy plays Scratchy's skeleton like a xylophone, he strikes the same rib twice in succession, yet he produces two clearly different tones. I mean, what are we to believe, that this is some sort of a... a magic xylophone or something? Boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder.
