fast stopping ONCE! Auto mechanics have a name for this - "hydrolocking"
(not sure about the spelling). It locks up the engine and destroys it.
Saw the results once - a friend tried to drive a car out of a flooding
parking lot, and it stalled. Asked me to help him get it started the
next day - engine would not turn over - found a hole in the pan with
pieces hanging out of it - engine was junk. The air intakes on this car
are apparently quite low to the ground.
