You don't have to make the motor a single polygon mesh, it's almost impossible to do that, I mean... not even the real engine is made out of one piece, but making the majority one polygon mesh definitely helps as long as it doesn't make things unnecessarily difficult.
But yeah, I agree with you and I on the other hand don't see anything wrong with your harsh words, it's just the truth and we all know that the truth sometimes hurts. We can only take it and improve from there.

The main problem I see here is laziness and lack of motivation, nothing else. Ramon obviously has good skills, but like so many others he obviously rather rushes things than actually getting things right first. I'm sorry, but I won't say thank you for that, it's like watching your chick eat pizza, she gives you one piece that she started to eat, but can't finish and expects a thank you from you because atleast she gave you something, like nah bro...

Let's see, the Diffuse map is trash, the norms look like they're OK, spec map is off and the wireframe is probably trash too.
Why don't you check on other models like DJ's Yamaha or Wilson's CRF, they're old but a great example of how a Wireframe should be. The wireframe is literally where you start from, if it's bad, you'll have big problems making good Diffuse, Specular and Normal Maps for it.
I'd actually go deeper into how you could improve your skills and models, but I did it so often and only a few would ever listen, in your case... well I think you're just too lazy to do it right and you're okay with the outcome. Need proof? Look at the exhaust end cap, is it really that hard to get a good carbon fiber texture? https://lmgtfy.com/?q=carbon+texture ...nope it's pure laziness.
If you really want to learn a thing or two, these might be useful:

That's not true at all.

Actually most people in sim don't see most of the flaws and I actually feel like people usually think that things are better than they really are. Look back to 2010-2013, that's when everyone was picky AF

I gotta agree with you, we sugercoat stuff way too much these days. Not everyone deserves a medal for everything and humbling experiences like defeat are important for building character.
There's a fine line between sugar coating and being not wrong but an asshole. And it's hard to find, but if I had to choose between sugar coating a bit too much and being a small asshole, I'd go for the sugar coat. Ultimately I want to write effective critism to help someone grow, not to point out mistakes that I wouldn't have made.
Don't expect someone to listen to your critism if you hurt their ego too much. Even if you're right and they should listen to it, they won't because that's human nature, only few can put their pride behind.
