An Irishman Having A Stroke
Hey, look at that, this episode is up on the right day! Fancy that. There's some actual automotive news this week, which is a nice change of pace, and is very welcome. We kick off the news with the new Toyota GazooRacing 86, the naturally aspirated FA24 powered successor to the wonderful GT86. We then talk about the new "400" Zed, with a 400hp twin-turbo V6, designed to tackle the MkV Supra with a proper 6-speed manual, and Barra-swapped Mustangs, then Matt makes one of his biggest takes by arguing that the General Motors LS-engine is the best engine of all time. We then talk about the new Aventador-based 6.5L V12 with electric-assist 803hp Lamborghini Countach, which we all very much like. We briefly then talk about Honda/Acura teasing a new Integra for 2022, but we don't know anything about it yet, and then we talk about the Land Rover Defender getting a big whomping V8 which will be coming to Australia.... If you have f#ck you money at $210,000 AUD. We then end on the Car World Cup, and in this week, we're in France.

We're Not Family Friendly Content
Due to a major PC fault, this episode was extremely delayed due to not being able to edit the episode. Mitch kicks off the news with the 2022 BMW 2 Series being leaked online, and it's an interesting looking thing, then Matt gets us playing a mini game of Would You Rather with Porsche Boxters, and GT86's, which is entirely unusual for us to talk about 86's. We then talk about how in the world Joseph daily's his GT86 racecar, and then we talk about Silvias, and the exciting world of car insurance. Mitch then talks about getting booked for speeding after leaving Joseph's house after recording a podcast a few weeks ago, and then we reminisce over car related memories from our youth.

The Devil's Avocado
We kick off this week's episode with usual bollocks, before Joseph kicks off the news. The first bit of news is about Jeep trying to stop Mahindra from selling their Wrangler-like Thar 4x4 in Australia. Joseph then talks about Toyota making a GazooRacing Hilux, which will be competing in the Dakar Rally. Then we talk a little about the fuel shortage in America, and a bit about the fuel situation in Australia. Joseph then talks about Ford Australia's cock up (lies) about the Australian version of the Ford Mustang Mach1, unsurprisingly, we get shafted with the spec. Matt then talks about Mitsubishi finally killing off the Pajero, from which we talk about the current Mitsubishi line up (and apparently the CJ Lancer has been killed off). Then we talk about the rather high price of the 5-Door variant of the Suzuki Jimny. Mitch and Joseph then talk about the battle to get Toyota Techstream diagnostics software working, and Joseph talks about his new helmet setup. We then end on Car World Cup game.

Mitch then talks about the International Olympic Committee including simracing in a digital Olympics via what is essentially GranTurismo Academy.

Joseph then has another Public Service Announcement regarding our listeners who may be Dacia and Renault buyers, and then gets us talking about the new Ferrari 812 VS "Versione Speciale", that features a naturally-aspirated 9,500rpm V12 that pushes 610kw.

Then Mitch talks about Honda going all electric by 2040, and Brabham will be bringing manufacturing to Australia with a new supercar.... Allegedly, and a Subaru 22B selling for over $400,000 AUD on Bring-A-Trailer in the US.

Yankee Doodle
We are back for episode 187! This week, we kick off with the sad news of Sabine Schmitz losing her battle with cancer at the age of 51.

Thoroughbred Sportscar
We are back for episode 186 (though we say it’s 187, it’s not)! After usual bollocks, we talk about – and Mitch rants about – Subaru releasing a dual-cab ute called the Brumby, and seems like it’ll be based on the Toyota Hilux. Mitch then talk about Ferrari releasing the F171, a new 522kw ‘supercar’ powered by a hybrid V6, which is terribly sad, old man Enzo must be rolling in his grave, before talking about Ferrari making a return to LeMans in the new ‘Hypercar’ class (which replaces the LMP1 class). Matt then talks about the Australian automotive sales stats for February 2021. Then Matt goes on a bit of a rant about Volkswagen’s ridiculous SUV-focuses range, then the Range Rover and the Defender, and Matt talks about the RAM TRX (which we have already talked about, but whatever), and the new Hyundai Ioniq 5. Joseph then talks about the new Mitsubishi Express Van – which is just a rebadged Renault Traffic – being the first ever vehicle to get a zero-start ANCAP safety rating, and Mitch finally gets to talk about the new 5.0L Supercharged V8 coming to the Range Rover Defender. Then we talk about AliExpress, Mitch’s favourite website, and Joseph gives an update on how his new differential in his GT86 is going, and Matt talks about what’s being done to his LandCruiser.

Fit And Not Finished
This is probably our most left-of-field start to an episode ever... Joseph somewhat kicks off the news - what there is of it - this week with news about the Porsche GT3 RS (ps. we never came back around to Mitch's Porsche pick, we're not very good at our jerbs), and then Matt clarifies the Subaru Impreza/WRX/STi breakups. We then suggest what car Joseph should get to be a new daily driver, as the 86 is becoming a little too racecar for daily driver duties anymore. Matt then talks about the Mk8 Golf R Wagon, and Joseph talks about the new Subaru Levorg, and an Amarok/Ranger based Land Rover Defender, and then we argue semantics. We then talk about the GR Camry, which we really like, and a Tesla Model 2, and the concept Mazda 6.

Diesel Grunt Gets The Hmmmmmm
Late again. My bad, my bad. Matt isn't with us this week, but in his absence, we still managed to smash out a banger of an episode for your earholes. After some bollocks, Mitch kicks off the news with a bit more leakage from the Toyota marque around the 300 Series LandCruiser... And sadly, it does seem like the next Cruiser will have a 3.5L-hybrid V6 twin-turbo petrol, and potentially a 3.3L V6 turbo diesel... From which we talk about how it's time to move on from the 2JZ. Then we briefly talk about Holden having ZERO sales for January 2021. Joseph then talks news from across the pond, the new Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing. We then talk about the rumours and lazy renders surrounding the 5th-gen WRX due in Australia in 2022 with the FA24DIT, and the ven more lazy rumours surrounding the Nissan 400Z. Then we talk about the next-generation Mercedes-AMG C63.... Which will have a spooly-boi 2.0L 4-banger from the A45S, plus a hybrid system, from which we then talk about Diesel's continued popularity in Australia, and then we end on general nonsense and a discussion on gearing.

Smashed By The Covid Tax
We are back! This week, Mitch kicks off the episode with a tale from his Saturday night concrete-sleeping adventure. Joseph then breaks into a real news topic by talking about the new 2021 BMW M5 CS. Matt then issues us a challenge by trying to find a 4x4 or a sports car that appears to not have been affected by the Covid Tax. Joseph then brings back the news by talking about SSC Tuatara actually breaking the high-speed record for real this time, by hitting 455km/h, and LMCT+ buying the most expensive vehicle sold at auction in Australia by buying one of the very last HSV GTSR-W1 Maloo for a smidge over $1million Aussie Dollarydoos. Mitch then talks about the updates to the Tesla Model S and X range, specifically the Plaid+ model variant of the Model S. Joseph then talks about some weird and crazy car laws in Queensland. Mitch then talks about the new Lada Niva getting a turbo on its new 1.3L 4-banger.

Kia Potato
Yeah, it's late, but shhhh. We kick off the news this week with Joseph talking about the apparently 'new' Jeep Grand Cherokee, which looks a helluva lot like the old Grand Cherokee. Mitch then talks about FCA and PSA making it Facebook Official and forming a new group 'Stellantis'. Matt then talks about how 66% of Ford Australia's sales is the Ranger, which is causing some concern within the ranks of Ford Australia as the next Ranger is a shared platform with the Volkswagen Amarok, from which we talk about the Ford Bronco not coming to RHD markets and 'Murican "trucks". Mitch then talks about Lada bringing out a new Niva, while still selling the OG Niva, and BMW coming out with their first 'M' electric car, the i4 M, and the Mustang will more-than-likely only be offered with an electric drivetrain by the end of the decade, but the next-generation Mustang due in 2023 might get a new 6.8L V8, and Hyundai ending all development on new diesel engines. We then talk about how a little while ago we asked for negative reviews, and we got one! Mitch then talks about what he's done to the Prado and the Hilux, before Joseph and Matt talk about what they've done to Joseph GT86.

Don't Let Your Dreams Be Memes
We are back! Happy 2021! We're sorry this episode is later than we had hoped, Corona decided to do an Empire and it striked back and buggered our plans to get back into your ear-holes last week. Anyways, we're back now. We had to re-record this week as GarageBand decided to F us and corrupt our first attempt at this episode, but we persevered. Matt then kicks off the news with a Finnish tyre company wanting to sell 'Lifelong tyres', and the new Ford Ranger has been spied in camo and it looks "very F150-y" and it'll be a shared platform with the next Volkswagen Amarok. Joseph then talks about Toyota's new GR010 LMP1 race-car, and Nissan pretty much gearing up to release the 400Z which will, allegedly, look exactly like the 400Z Prototype. Mitch then talks about Ken Block and Ford getting a divorce and seeing other people; ie, they've parted ways. Ken might potentially go back to Subaru. Then Mitch talks about the new Singer ACS Safari/Rally 911; a two-off commission by a rich bloke. Joseph then talks about BMW shitting the bed with the new M2 CS promotional video, which features the audio-track of an Audi V10 super-imposed over the video... Basically, BMW is having an identity crisis at the moment. Joseph then talks about GM's crap new logo that is just pure crap. Mitch then goes on a rant about how he got banned from commenting on Ozzy Tyres' Facebook page, then Joseph and Mitch then talk about getting OBD2 readers for their cars, and we talk about Mitch's new Android head unit and GME UHF.

It will be a 4.0L naturally-aspirated flat 6, with an optional manual transmission, among other improvements over the out-going 991 generation GT3. We then talk about a Porsche GT2 RS smashing the production car lap record at Mount Panorama during 'Challenge Bathurst'. Matt then gets us to have a conversation, by starting off by making it a game... Of sorts. We then end with a different take on the Forza-style engine swap game we played from a few weeks back; this week, we have to pick a 6-cylinder engine to put into a current production car.

Better Doesn't Always Mean Better
Yeah, my bad, sorry this week's episode is late. This week, we kick off with Mitch getting mad at Matt for a take from last week, before breaking into a bit of news.

Colin Chapman must be rolling in his grave, and Joseph talks about a new Hemi-powered Jeep Wrangler that will only be sold in America, and the GR Yaris is sold out until end of next year; not including the 'Rallye' variant.

The Iron Chef
When I said last week that we'd return to our regularly scheduled programming, I should have considered the fact that Matt would drop the ball and not send me the episode file to edit... So, blame him this week. After some usual bollocks, Joseph kicks off the news with Toyota talking trash about Tesla and Elon Musk, and World Time Attack Challenge 2021 might be held at night as Sydney Motorsports Park is fully illuminated. Joseph then talks about the new MG's new electric ZS SUV. We then talk some nonsense about getting old and not being able to drive low fun cars any more, before we break into Matt's newest favorite game 'The Debate'.

Grease Up The Nipple
This week, it's just Mitch, Joseph and Joel. We start off with talking absolute nonsense before breaking into a bit of news. The first bit of news we talk about is about the Governor of California signing a bill to ban the sale of Internal Combustion Engines as of 2035, from which all cars will have to be "emission free". From which, we talk about our love for Internal Combustion Engines and more-or-less our dislike of electric cars. We then talk about adding to our respective tool collections, specifically Joseph is looking at getting an air impact, and Joel's dead Z32. Mitch then reads off a list of 5 uber rare, and uber expensive, classic cars for sale right now in Australia, from which we talk about our love for 80's, 90's, and early 2000's Japanese cars as the new BMW's have far too much technology for their own good. We then end on a mish-mash of news from electric cars to Scott McLaughlin winning the SUpercars championship for the 3rd time on the trot. Joseph then gets us talking about the leaked images of the next generation BMW M3 and M4, and we're not a fan, to say the least.

We are back with another episode to keep you somewhat entertained during this Coronavirus nonsense. This week, we kick off with a bit of nonsense before cracking on and talking about Sir Stirling Moss passing away at the age of 90yrs last week. Something we learned about 10 minutes after we uploaded last weeks episode. So, we dedicate a fair bit to talk about his extensive motor racing career. We then talk a bit about the next Nissan Zed-car, rumoured to be a 400Z which would imply it will have a 4.0L engine. Then Matt talks about the new Ford Focus RS more than likely not coming to Australia; though Ford Australia is determined for it to come here. Matt then talks about Mazda probably borrowing BMW's inline 6 and drivetrain for the new Mazda 6, and probably partnering up with Toyota to develop Mazda's next sports car. We then talk about Chinese vehicles, and Matt actually gets quite excited by a few of them. Matt then brings up CarSales' article on the top 10 Drift cars for under $10k. Joseph then goes through the list of the top10 cars sold in Australia in the year 2000, and there's one car, in particular, that was an absolute blast from the past. Mitch then talks about what's been happening to his Hilux lately. Then we answer a question from James and talk about mad imported cars for sale. Then we end with 'The Cool Wall.'

Out Of Context
We are back for episode 143! We hope you're all staying safe and well during this Corona stuff. We start off this by arguing about food, weirdly enough, before Joseph and Mitch rag on Matt for not being able to speak English correctly. We kick off the news this week with a bit of automotive news from America, and Mitch forgets about Ford's V6 Twin Turbo existing. Matt then rants about Subaru and then rants about people's claiming their cat-back exhaust adds power to turbo cars (without doing the dump). Matt and Joseph then talk absolute trash about how they're 'over beer' before Matt talks about Tesla's new ute, and how he's wanting a Honda S660.

We are back for episode 125! This week we're joined by The Short One, and we start off by appreciating Matt's WRX, as well a backfiring issue he's experiencing. We also briefly talk about us going to go see the movie Ford V Ferrari after recording this episode, which we'll talk in-depth about the next episode. We kick off with the news this week with Joseph talking about Ferrari's new model the 'Roma' which is a front-engined turbocharged V8 2+2. Matt then has a rant about Caville Ave, and how it ain't what it used to be. Joseph then goes onto news about Pirelli opening a display showroom thing in Preston, Victoria, in which they're showing off the products they make and sell. We then take a listener email from a disgruntled Y62 Nissan Patrol owner by the name of Simon, which triggers Matt something awful. Joseph then finds some more news, this time it's about McLaren releasing the Elva, a retro-roadster thing that looks suspiciously like the Ferrari SP1/SP2 that was a thing a while back, then Matt and Joseph get distracted by talking brakes and brake pads. Mitch then talks about what he's done to his Hilux, specifically finally doing an oil and oil filter change and how he spent 6 plus hours trying to sort out the incessant rattle the Snorkel made against the A-Pillar. We then talk about power tools after Mitch shares that he bought the cheapest angle grinder Bunnings sells. Joseph talks about his new Dixcel brake pads, which prompts Matt and Joseph to talk about brakes and tyres. Matt then talks about him finding out that the coolant in his 105 Series LandCruiser isn't clean, rather a browny-rusty colour which is never a good sign. Mitch then talks about his desire to get a Honda Civic, and his challenge to beat Joseph at the track.

Spicy Little French Croissant
We're back for ep123! Sorry it's a bit of a shorter one this week, Matt and Mitch were really tired from each having a big week. Mitch kicks off the news with car recalls, specifically this week the 2018 Renault Megane RS which might cause engine failure. Joseph then talks about BMW's M-Division stating that the manual transmission is the 'flagship' transmission for the M3 and M4. Matt then talks about fixing his Subaru WRX's shifter this week, it was too flaccid to get a roady. We say there's going to be a 'bonus' episode recorded while down at Matt's bucks party... Yeah, that didn't happen. We then take a question from Matt a listener of the show. He asks us what our thoughts are on the Nissan variable combustion (VC) engine and our thoughts on the future of internal combustion engines. Mitch then talks about options to turbo his Hilux, and we talk utter bollocks until the end. We promise we'll be back on form for episode 124.

Saturday Is For Hangovers
We are back for episode 121! This week we're once again joined by Ben from Pencil's Ballercast, and later we're joined by Michael 'Tresy' Trew, however, he just yells things from the couch. We start off talking about go-karting as we're going to Matt's bucks next weekend, before we talk a bit about the Gold Coast 600 Supercar race, with Chaz Mostert and Scott McLaughlin both binning their Mustangs in qualifying.

We then actually talk about World Time Attack Challenge 2019, and the issues surrounding the Yokohama tyres that don't appear to be handling the greater and greater loads that the Pro-Class players are putting the tyres under. Matt then drops a bombshell on all of us. We then pretty much just talk absolute nonsense for the rest of the episode, so if you're into that, you'll enjoy the rest of this episode!

I Don't Open My Throat That Way
We've said it before, and we'll probably say it again in future, but better late than never, here's episode 120! Mitch is pretty off his tits this episode as he finished up with his last job and had many farewell beers, plus we're joined by Ben from Pencil's Ballercast and the Short One.

We're back for episode 119! This week, Matt's back, and he has a few thoughts on episode 118 that he was away for. Mitch kicks off the news with Koenigsegg breaking the zero to 400kph to zero record. We then briefly talk about the confirmation of the BRZ/86  Gen 2 concept coming to the Tokyo Motor Show. Joseph then talks about how since electric cars are coming thick and fast, which will be faster than basically any internal combustion engine available per price bracket, you shouldn't necessarily buy a supercar by performance, but by how it makes you feel. We then talk a bit of bollocks before we end the episode.

Nissan Used To Be Cool
We're back for episode 118! This week, it's just Mitch, Joseph and Joel as Matt's off at a bucks. Mitch kicks off the news with talking about a chap in America ordering a Tesla, then 3 weeks later received a Tesla's front fender in the mail. Joseph and Joel then talk about a recent car meet they went to, and the worrying trend of the return of underglow, and a general increase in shitty mods. Joseph then talks about the 3 OG's from local automotive publication CarAdvice handing in their resignation letters, and moving on from CarAdvice. Mitch then talks about the rumours surrounding the next generation GT86 / BRZ, which will probably have the FA24 for the powerplant, might use a shared platform with Mazda, and will handle better than the Mk5 Supra. We then briefly talk about Mazda patenting a new Wankel rotary, but Mitch isn't as excited as everyone else appears to be because this is just hype news, as last we heard the Rotary will only be used as part of a hybrid system as a power generator and not connected directly to the rear wheels. Mitch then talks about the 2020 Nissan GTR Nismo's pricing and specs being released; it'll be $380,000 AUD (before on-roads) - a whole $80,000 more than the outgoing model, with the same power as the outgoing Nismo. We then talk about American car dealers being dogs and over-charging for 'popular' or in-demand new cars. We then answer an email from a listener, Matt White, who asked what we would recommend to make his 2013 Chevy Sonic LTZ (Holden Barina to us Australian's) more comfortable for his long commute. We then talk about idiot drivers causing knee-jerk reaction laws, and why that's complete bollocks, and we talk about Kevin Hart being sued after a crash involving his resto-mod Barracuda, and shitty drivers in general. Mitch then rants about Tracey Grimshaw and her shit television program A Current Affair, who had yet another piece of trash "news" about 'extreme car enthusiasts', and they partnered up with the New South Wales Police and their 'Operation Kilowatt' who were out and targeting people with illegal tint and low ride height. We then end the episode by talking about how cars have advanced further than the average skill of most drivers, and how licenses haven't caught up with how powerful cars have become.

Kanye West Effect
We are back for episode 117, and this week it's a bit off the rails! We start off briefly about talking about Joseph's written review of the Toyota Corolla Hybrid Ascent Sport We then talk about drifting, before breaking into a bit of news (and a semi-rant from Mitch) regarding the new Land Rover Defender, after the lead engineer saying that it's "daft" for the Defender to have a manual.

Then we talk about tyres, and tyre technology, and how far even the Bob Jane Special's have come in recent years, and then we talk about whether 'Australian Made' is as important today as it has been in the past, and we talk about Chinese-made for a while. We then finish off last week's questions we received on Facebook, and run out of time to play a game.

Pure Parts Bin Money Grab

Then, we talk about the next-gen Ford Focus ST's pricing, features, and engine specs, though we don't think the pricing reflects what you get.

We then continue onto the next round of Matt's garage game, with this week the budget is $20,000, and then we play 'What About This Car', and this week it's about the Mazda 2, and Matt reckons the Mazda 2 would be a good contender to be the next 'Twin Cam'.

Absolute Crank Pulley

We kick off with a bit of bollocks, before Mitch talks about how Tetsuya Tada (the bloke behind the GT86 and the Mk5 Supra [and mini-vans]) wants to partner with Porsche for the next-gen MR2 and to base it on the next-gen Cayman/Boxter chassis.
