Small update, an outtakes episode, NWS.

 

I guess based on previous releases that the next build ep is probably due in the next month or 2.

:)

 

People have done so many mods on minis over the years.

 

Way back when there was a drag racing mini van that ran at Santa Pod, then the only drag strip in the UK, it had a Jaguar V-12 mid mounted and driving the rear wheels. Rather appropriately it was named "Stripteaser." :)

 

Cheers

You would of course know of the two engined mini... one engine for each axle?

The pair of them should cease and desist all else so that I don't have to wait so long for my next Binky fix...

Yep... but pretty certain this is a side-project that brings no money into the business other than merchandising for Bad Obsession Motorsport.

I guess they could go Patreon with it but then that means you get that obligation to listen to what the contributors want.

Although it's had a few backtracks and stumbles so far, way better progress than many could manage putting 3 times the hours into it.  And commercial production quality and decent comic dose to go with it.

Another project worth following, this will likely be over and done with in the coming days.

 

This Old Tony is building a chainsaw motor powered go-cart for his kids.

 

2 episodes + an adendum so far:

Good ep.  Some nice fab work going on, especially the HVAC unit practically from scratch.  Not sure if the cardboard incarnation is more impressive though.

Also good to see the timed work on the bracket (fark, a whole solid day for it) and cameo from Edd China.

Do have to ask though - who the hell is Edd China?


Anything not nailed down is mine, and anything I can prise up is not nailed down...

A fairly famous car guy/mechanic in the UK.

 

He was on Wheeler Dealers for 13 years, and has built his own projects like world's fastest sofa and various other motorised furniture.

He also made the joined cars with top one steering/bottom one driving controls that were seen on 2 Top Gear episodes.
