At 2.05 in the video it switches to an in-car view, can someone tell me what the deal is with the gears are on that monster? It looks like he's pulling 3 separate levers, one for each gear change...

These must take an unreal amount of planning to layout and figure out just which layer is going on in which order. Also the shop's bill for masking tape must be truly next level.

Amazing.

What has 850HP, nearly 3,000 lb/ft torque, weighs ~2,200 lbs, hits 100mph in 5 seconds, has Chris Harris driving it and yet is kinda boring to watch?

This Drayson B12/69EV:

I didn't realize how important engine and exhaust noise was to the whole experience. The thing hauls rear end and is extremely impressive in every technical way but I would rather watch him drive a Miata.

It's like watching a film with the volume on mute. Sound is more than half of the film, if you watch sad things without the string soundtrack they tend to be far less effective. The human brain is weird like that.

Binky is such an outrageously ambitious project, there's some truly next level engineering going on with that car it's no wonder it's taking forever. That and they still have to run a business... I reckon it'll be next summer before we see it completed.

I'm trying to find the video I saw of a wall of death in India. They had 4 cars and a few bikes on it at the same time, guys on the bikes holding hands with people in the car who were hanging out of the windows. It was loving crazy.

"You can spin the tires from 0 to 280kph in the dry, and over 280kph you can't spin the tires anymore, then you can just accelerate very very fast"

"If you turn off the stability and traction control, at any speed from 0 to 280, as soon as you floor it fully, you can rip your tires loose. Instantly."

What this means is we're probably going to see some spectacular wrecks.

Due to this discussion I watched a few Schmee vids. He just seems to exist to prattle on about a bunch of bullshit that nobody in their right mind should care about, the cars he drives get a bit of a mention, they're always great, he always enjoys it but nothing actually happens much in them. He goes for a tootle to places... I get the idea he doesn't know much about cars or knows how to drive any of the weapons he has properly so you get this dumpy little fat-tongued dweeb talking a bunch of shite for 20 minutes or half an hour at a time.

...but then this is youtube and a lot of 'popular' channels are utter shite.

A friend of mine has an 84 (I think) 323 sedan that he tootles about in. It's in real nice condition, no rust whatsoever.

Every time I go in it I just smile, it's such a ridiculous car in 2016, a tin box with tiny pillars and a side exit exhaust that makes so much noise. It's not fast at all but outside of supercars there's not really much that has the sort of road presence of a sparkly old shitbox bwarping its way down the road.

They never will, I just know it, but I wish to the combustion gods that they'd do something besides Murican V8s. The 4-cylinder engine in Ken Block's latest Ford Escort puts out 333HP, and it's naturally aspirated. Wish they'd do a video on something like that.

I guess they play to their market being related to Hot Rod mag. I'd love to see them piss about with something a little less common to them though. And I also want Roadkill to get a rotary...

I like Mighty Car Mods, I like Moog and Marty, I like their projects, I tolerate Moog trying to sell music by adding it at every opportunity he can during the show but at this point the project videos are being dragged out more than loving Dragonball Z. Entire 20 minute episodes pass with the most minimal amount of work goes on. 5 different camera angles to put on an air filter... It's like the anti-Binky where you get a single episode every few months but a whole load of important poo poo happens.

Georgia is an interesting choice. I wonder how that will affect the roadkill schedule or if hes even working for HOTROD anymore.

He replied to one of the comments on one of thw youtube videos or instagram ones and says he's no longer working for Hotrod but still writes articles for other mags/sites. Also on the youtube vid comments he says he's currently filming 2 episodes for Roadkill so apparently it doesn't affect that much.

He mentions the drag boat in one of the videos, reckons he'll get 2000hp out of the twin-turbo V8 and says it'll do more if he wants but he wants to have fun and not die. Like a 2000hp boat isn't enough to die a million deaths in.
