Yep, but I'm glad you've alerted me to the fact that episode 5 is up and on youtube. Ta

Same here, had been waiting patiently since episode 4

Having now seen all the fabrication they've gotten done since the last one, I can see what was taking them so long!

As it's a full on rally car with a 2 litre turbo engine, I'd say not

dark vaider hear commented before,
it nothing to do with a mini, apart from the obviouse,
its shot in clea\n falce suroundings, its edited ,, its normal engineering,
ive worked with better faster enginears in the cold with low light before,
on the floor, its not clever but its mildly ok but im not impressed its just not real,,
thums down boo, shisty
only saveing grace is the humer and that's it, im not even gunna apolagize,

Of course it's edited, if they put up all the hundreds of hours of grinding, welding and tea-drinking no-one would watch it! It sure as hell doesn't have much mini left in it, but that's not why I like it. I watch it because the logic and problem solving needed is the same reason I enjoy working on my own car. Only this way, I can sit around in my pants, eating doritos

What makes you say they're not good engineers, out of interest?

When choosing the engine mounts doesn't he say it's going to be a road car? Or have I miss heard?

Paul ,, I don't remember saying there not "good engineers"
I'm looking for an example , 30 minutes go by,
So hear goese > food program when you know the chickens not cooked, o whoops
Hears one we cooked earlier sprayed with wd40 so the camera sokes it up,
A decent mini would keep up with this terminator(2) prostrate spuNK pump,
Now Paul yo know how to grind me, respect, but it's Wednesday night not Saturday ,
Lol,
Meet the actor in the street and mention blinky and he will walk away like your a weirdo,
Ile deal with the onshort tomorrow,

Well I'm pretty impressed with it. Their sheet metal work looks damn fine. As for making it easier by building it as a spaceframe I think it's more an exercise in seeing if they can do it this way. Spaceframes are plenty, this is a one off.

Looking forward to Ep 6...
