    Did Hammond change his church pew out, with the mods?

    [21x05] March 2nd, 2014

    I pushbike more than drive during the work week, & found heaps that ring true in the bike segment they did. Prob with cycling about is that you are faced with a lot of shortcomings when compared to anything petrol powered, so taking rules into interpretation is sometimes the best policy, but...

    What segments do you miss from the earlier seasons?

    Do SIARPC interview - while - the celeb are driving doing their lap time.

    Random Thoughts (Top gear Edition)

    As teasers, Top Gear should have interior shots of cars used by the guys after a challenge, with a caption asking us to guess: "Who's been driving this?"...although the driver seat position might actually be a dead give-a-way thinking about it now...

    The Stig's face!

    Isn't the Stig a hologram, like the drivers in the Transformers?

    [03x06] 2003.12.07 Monaro

    It is a little bit embarrassing that us Australians really can't build & sell a car as a sizeable going concern, even thought everybody here uses one (and are willing to pay a premium, more so than anyone else in the world, to buy & own one).

    Which presenter do you relate to the most? Why?

    The Cool Wall? That'll be Ben Collins then wouldn't it? Ps: I don't think this post could possibly be regarded as a Spoiler, even if it was true....

    Why I'm no longer going to watch Top Gear

    I think the OP is a little bit upset that Top Gear might have a different opinion on stuff related to cars than he has. I think anyone who has watched more than one episode of Top Gear would regard it more of a lifestyle show than a car show. It?s not about the cars or what they do, but more...

    [19x07] March 10th, 2013 [Africa Special, Part 2]

    I couldn't see the point in any of the other specials 'journeys', I think this one about the Nile was as good as any. In fact, I think the whole point of anything that occurs on Top Gear having a commonly regarded quantifiable 'point' is pretty much missing the point of why Jeremy kicked off the...

    Random Thoughts (Top gear Edition)

    Not sure if this was covered elsewhere or warrants new thread, but: We've seen heaps of cars that Jeremy either just doesn't fit into, or is squeezed in ,especially with a helmet on. But have there been any cars featured that Richard was too small to drive without some, err, effort?

    Best Top Gear Special?

    Because my opinion differs from yours. Besides the polar special is all about the equipment, & that detracts from the adventure of it all, as it would be all very well planned, with a cast of thousands only a heli-drop away. Strap enough equipment to the arse of a baboon & you can put it on the...

    [18x07] March 11th, 2012

    Top episode. Here in Australia we don't have any real form of Rallycross, outside of a mate's dad's farm back paddock & a couple of bangers. So I watched it with a slight tinge of jealousy.

    1: - No. Nobel suppling cars to Top Gear is probably the most cost effective way for a firm of that size to get the brand known. I wouldn't be surprised if when the call came from the TG on-site team back to the Nobel office about the clutch problems, "Geoff" would've have phoned the misses...

    Best Top Gear Special?

    It's the one without any cars in it, for me. ;)

    Insanely jealous of lil Dicky or anyone else who?s driving about in a 3 wheeled Morgan. Regardless of speed, you can?t possibly take life seriously again after driving around in that thing. The ?drive to work in cold & rain? is situation normal for anyone who rides two wheels to work everyday...

    Remove your car?s bonnet, sit on the engine & ask a friend to drive you around for a few hours. Now get inside & drive normally.

    The official 2012 season MotoGP thread! Return of the 1000cc bikes!

    For me, the move to bigger 100cc engines for 2012 is not so good. It?s not like the 800s lacked power or speed. Similar to the feeling of some of the main teams in 2011, I reckon a move to a smaller displacement, drop rider aides & leave all else open for modification staying with a normally...
