Whistlindiesel calls out TheStradman for his “bad taste” in cars

YouTubers are human just like the rest of us, so when Whistlindiesel called out TheStradman in a post about his wide-body Supra and “bad taste” in cars on Instagram, TheStradman hit back with comments of his own.

The seemingly unprovoked ‘shots’ came courtesy of an image of what appears to be similar to TheStradman’s wide-body Toyota A90 Supra that he built for SEMA last year. Whistlindiesel uses the image as a platform to moan about the “bad taste” of the car community, specifically those who own Supras.

While the initial cause of this ‘Insta-beef’ is unclear, it seems that Whistlindiesel has recently expanded into creating car content rather than his trademark heavy-duty truck and off-roading videos, which seems to have sparked a backlash from some of his viewers.

If the use of an image resembling one of TheStradman’s cars wasn’t bad enough, he also referenced the car being wrapped in “some sort of grape color,” which is a trademark of TheStradman’s videos — at one point in time, nearly his entire fleet was wrapped in a satin purple ‘grape’ color!

Response to Whistlindiesel’s comments

Whistlindiesel’s followers didn’t seem to appreciate this quibble with Stradman, though, with several top commenters telling him to “stay in his lane” and “stick to what you know.” This suggests that despite being WD’s supporters, even they didn’t see the need to take a shot at TheStradman.

Within 30 mins of the post going up, TheStradman responded, having assumed the post was directed at him and his SEMA build Supra.

Making reference to the fact that Whistlindiesel seems to enjoy destroying vehicles on his channel, Strad responded: “How about you buy one, wrap it purple and then destroy it for YouTube views, as such a valued member of the car community. Also, nice to talk to you for the first time.”

It seems that TheStradman has now deleted his comment from WD’s post, but has since put up his own post saying: “Ah, the sheep have come out to say hello” along with a shot of his three satin purple SEMA vehicles.  This may not be the last we hear from Whistlindiesel and TheStradman, so we’ll be sure to keep you updated should anything else surface between the pair.


Forza Horizon 4 Backstage cars list, location & passes

Series 28 of Forza Horizon 4 saw a number of updates and changes implemented, with one of the biggest being the introduction of Horizon Backstage. We explain how to access this new area, and give a rundown of all the cars available. 

The Forza Backstage area was added to Forza Horizon 4 as part of the Series 28 update on October 13, 2020.

Allowing players access to exclusive, ultra-rare, and hard-to-find cars, the Backstage area is an exciting new addition to the game. Along with making it easier to find such rare cars, it also makes them far more accessible, as each featured vehicle only costs one ‘Backstage Pass’ rather than millions of credits.

Horizon Backstage LocationHorizon Backstage is located behind the main Horizon Festival stage.

How to access Horizon Backstage

Forza Horizon 4 Backstage can be accessed much the same as the ‘Autoshow’ in the game.

Players can either drive to the physical location found behind the main Horizon Festival Stage, or access via the ‘Autoshow’ menu.

You can also access the area via the pause menu, by selecting “Horizon Backstage” under the ‘Cars’ tab.

Horizon Backstage Car ListEach car costs 1 Backstage Pass, and is limited to one per player.

Forza Horizon 4 Backstage Passes

Each vehicle in the Backstage area is available for purchase by players. Instead of the usual method of obtaining cars via in-game credits or Forzathon points, each vehicle costs 1x Backstage Pass.

These passes are awarded to players once they reach certain milestones in Festival event playlists. Passes are not specific to particular cars, and can be used for any vehicles featured in the backstage area.

Players can also accumulate passes, as they do not have an expiry date. It is important to note, however, that each featured car is limited to only one per player.

Horizon Backstage car votingThe Forza Horizon 4 community has the opportunity to vote which cars make it to Backstage.

Horizon Backstage cars

The cars featured in Horizon Backstage are chosen via community vote. From what we can see, previous cars stick around after their initial period, and currently, players are able to access Backstage featured cars from the previous seven days.

Currently available Horizon Backstage cars:

  • 1999 Lotus Elise Series 1 Sport 190
  • 2012 Ferrari 599XX Evo
  • 1965 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Hoonicorn Mustang
  • 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang
  • 1970 Porsche 914/6
  • 2018 Honda Civic Type R
  • 1994 Nissan Fairlady Z Version S Twin Turbo
