    [27x02] Jun 23, 2019 Electric Car Special

    But as I think I said upthread it turned out performance is far better than expected. Nissan is on record saying they found - to their surprise - that Leaf batteries outlast the vehicle itself. They had planned for battery swaps which no one needed.

    To whet your appetite, episode 5 had real unplanned but quite successful participation in that bonkers Icelandic extreme rally / hill climbing thing (genuine competition and no silly set up situations), a genuinely interesting look at the development and impact of the Lotus 79 F1 car (the one...

    The last episode (5, series final) was really good IMO... Not sure why no-one's posting since episode 2 - I would do it myself except for being a junior member and using my phone.

    Forgot to mention... Ostensibly the question was about building your own EV, but the points they made, which I took issue with, were about EV in general. And even the answer to the question itself... Is wrong. It's a definite yes! There are a number of outfits springing up doing excellent...

    Which is exactly why what they did was utterly irresponsible... There was something seriously wrong with that car - it in no way represents the average second hand Leaf.

    As someone following the EV revolution quite closely, I was annoyed and disappointed that the challenge segment was deliberately set up to propogate outdated and incorrect prejudice against electric vehicles: - Range anxiety: they made a big deal about this, yet later it turned out they had...

    Ha ha. Your comment actually makes me like the regional accent all the more! And I say that as someone with a homogenised neutral British accent, due to living in various countries over the years. Variety is the spice of life. These days everything is becoming uniform, so it's strange you...

    [03x14] April 11, 2019 - Funeral for a Ford

    If you follow the EV (electric vehicle) world, which is going through a massive surge to the mainstream right now (since not only is the technology maturing at an incredible rate but also things like EU regulations require manufacturers to provide a certain number of pure EV cars in the product...

    Good news! Amazon renews TGT for Season 4

    Ha ha ha! Thanks Mr. Nice - because of you, now I have also helped that annoying guy I've never heard of before be the most popular car video on YouTube (apparently)... Very sneaky of you... :)

    [03x11] March 21, 2019 - Sea to Unsalty Sea

    You have seen the matrix... Almost nothing in these shows isn't scripted. To be honest, I've always found these "we're holding a race against [fill in alternative transport / extreme sportsperson / etc. here] and have a million cameras set up all over the entire length of the course so we can...

    You talked about VPN for Amazon... I suggested other methods. Quite reasonable for me to think you might not have considered those if you don't mention them.

    2017...?! I wonder why they sat on that for so long? 🤔

    The show is freely available exactly where it (and millions of others) have always been freely available. Methinks the young folk today don't even know how things worked in the early days of Internet... ;) Heck, this very forum was where I found how to get hold of Top Gear in the old days...
