For context refer to this video;
This video / investigation was created after Ultimato posted a gif of PrayerS (Turbo) gets dragged into a corner, and then gets wall corner smashed, by not one - but three DR Monstaa's As this was the first time we had seen this 'suspicious' activity, we just thought it was a one off thing. That is until earlier today (7-3-20) Jack (zaydy) and I saw more of this activity. Listed below will contain timestamps of certain clips, and brief explanations.
1 - 00:00 - 0:010, Turbo's damage prior to getting dragged by Ulti; http://prntscr.com/rcvl32, After the drag; http://prntscr.com/rcvmac, After Ultis corner smash; http://prntscr.com/rcvmf6, After the followup corner smash by two Monstaa's; http://prntscr.com/rcvmlo. As previously stated, this was taken with a grain salt upon seeing it for the first time, because this is Need For Madness & anything can happen, right?
2 - 0:22 - 0:45, For further Context, Turbo was nuked by an F7 & took fuck all damage, and after I called him out subtly, just by saying "what the fuck" he goes afk, for over 10 seconds, then drives into Flash and gets one shot. Now, he could've gone afk for whatever reason, but we strongly believe he was toggling his client to intake regular damage. Similar to how Steam's client could toggle ghost mode to the click of a button. What we find absurd is how he didn't even bother to dodge or anything, he just drove straight into Flash, maybe to end the match and throw Jack and I off? I don't know. Either way, it's weird.
3 - 0:50 - 0:53, Here Turbo Bl's and gets up half a second later, unsure if its just a glitch, but again, still weird.
4 - 1:16 - 1:23, In this timestamp, Turbo gets stunt hit - no damage. Then he gets sucked inside a Monstaa, again fuck all damage, I for 1, know that getting stunt hit by a full powered Monstaa in most cars results in critical damage, as well as getting sucked into one & pushed out.
5 - 1:30 - 1:33, At this point in time Turbo was hit really hard into the wall, and took piss all, then I wall smashed him, and took fuck all yet again )) here is his damage after both attacks; http://prntscr.com/rcvqun
6 - 2:07 - 2:09, Turbo was hit by jack into the wall and then dragged, here is his damage after said attacks; http://prntscr.com/rcvrhc, even prior to this attack he was hit multiple times and took nothing, its in this video, but didn't want to elaborate on it as it'd be a pain explaining every little thing.
7 - 2:09 - 2:16, AAAAAAAAND the Turbo we all know and love was hit into the wall by jack yet again, and dragged. Here is his damage prior and post this attack; Before; http://prntscr.com/rcvs8k, After; http://prntscr.com/rcvsf1. Keep in mind DR Monstaa is one of the most lethal game cars, and against a car like LO, he shoudl've died 4 times over :/.
Above shows the most important / blatant clips. Feel free to check out the full video linked above. We didn't make this topic in hopes he'd get kicked from SF or anything like that. ~Sway, zaydy.

I can 100% GUARANTEE you will get these same, or similar results if you repeat the process at the start of those games, what happened to Turbo's car evidently wasn't produced the exact same way, but the idea is the same.
mr. hindsight incoming:
sadly a topic as serious as this one would've been much better to discuss on this forum rather than the discord server. Text chats are not really ideal and it seriously isn't the best place to have formal discussion due to things like chat moving too fast, opinions being voiced much more violently, and overall it being held more personal when it shouldn't :l but here we are I guess, things could've been handled much better on both sides
I am aware this topic was discussed for hours upon hours in the discord server, but here's my contribution to replicating what I was referring to when Lead Oxide (and possibly KK, MR and F7) is one of those cars which can have buggy defence and near to being invincible on some hits. I'd like to assume people here understand how this works as the car has existed for 12 years since NFM2 or even longer and hasn't been changed much at all, we can all agree we have all played this game for many many years and should be able to tell the difference between glitches and hacks. Other than that, hopefully this quarry is resolved and we can move on.

I don't have much to add but note in Ulti's gif I actually remember bouncing off Flash when going to cornerbang Turbo, so in actual fact he only got hit by 1 Monstaa there which lines up with Toa surviving on 95% after the first corner shot.
