    • BOTB is a scam. A spot the ball competition where they don't actually use the actual position of the actual ball they removed as a guide to who got closest.

    • 33:30 Ethan, I’m currently doing an advanced motor course at college, this EV thing is going to really disrupt the work jobs and how professional you can become, gone are the high paid jobs, instead I am going to hope for a good used market career and maybe performance brands, motorsport or joining the automotive journalism like you four.regardless I’m looking forward to it!

  • Gareth talking about that emergency braking reminded me of something that happened to my dad a few weeks ago. He was driving a rented Peugeot on the Autobahn, outside lane of course, and someone pulled out right in front of him. The Peugeot initiated an automatic emergency braking maneuver which he could not override (maybe there is a way, but with the Peugeot being a rental he was obviously unfamiliar with such car-specific behaviour), so he came to a dead stop on the outside lane of the german Autobahn. Luckily the car behind him seemed to be equipped with an automatic emergency braking system as well and thus was able to avoid a crash, but still, this was a bloody dangerous situation that could have ended in a very bad accident.

  • 39:46 An EV isn’t a car. It’s a vehicle, - but not a car. For it to be a car, according to the Oxford dictionary, it needs to have an engine. An “engine” is defined by NASA as a device that creates its own energy, and turns it into movement. Like a rocket, a jet engine, or an ICE. A “motor” on the other hand, is defined by NASA, as a device that takes existing energy, and turns it into movement. Like an electric motor...

  • Hi guys, I do Automotive Engineering at uni and they are beginning to prepare us more for the electrification of the industry. I have a number of more electrically oriented modules and in particular ones that focus on hybridisation. Once you can integrate an electric motor with the I.C.E engine, making the whole car electric isn't that much more difficult. Also Formula Student (which is a single seater racing competition held annually between universities) has an electric division which is constantly growing.

  • You are a little bit clueless about electric cars, mechanics, scene etc :D Not much will change --- all electrics have : AC, heat, cooling, brakes, suspension, interior, oils etc (in differentials, brake fluid, coolant, ac refrigerant and so on).... just one -two changes -- 1 speed gearbox and no clutch (or maybe there will be ev manuals :) because they are fun -- watch Ken Block ev Fiesta on rallycross track - new problems with fun driving without gears) and just electric motor instead of ice engine (which is even more complicated really). Does electric starters or alternators not require maintenance ? Those are first things that go in modern tech cars :) Sure ev have brushless engines - but construction is very simmilar just the size is bigger. There are also complicated parts that ice car don't have -- charger, contactor, big main fuse, motor regulator etc. (also inside electric motor is quite complicated with everything). Tuning will be same as now -- suspension, brakes, looks etc. and more into software .... also better motors or battery packs from tuners ? Same as today instead of better fuel pump and better engine :) . I don't see that much change. Just less oils usage in maintenance (you dont change the diff oil that often as an engine oil ;) in Telsa -- first 1 year or 12k miles -> next every 8 years or 100k miles or something like that you have to change the diff oil, brake fluid every 2 years, coolant every 4 years :) ac when needed .... also there will be more electric nonsense to go wrong (brake vacuum electric pump, electric water pump, front louvers motors, electric ac compressor etc etc...

  • Smart motorways are just wrong. IF an electronic system THINKS a vehicle isn't moving, IT DEPENDS on an alert worker watching a screen/ reading a warning,then it's THEIR opinion on whether to throw up" lane closed " signs .
