Episode 35 – Stress reduction, highway hellbeasts and defusing Richard
In this episode James, Matt and Crafty marvel at how Elon is rich in spite of not being able to deliver seemingly anything (1:15), revisit how he invented bricks (2:35), not signing up to be first to try the SpaceX Crew Dragon (3:20) and why the Model 3 “car of the people” is suddenly not for all people (4:05).
Electric cars make driving less stressful (5:55), however the stuff they’re made of is getting expensive (7:45), and NSW Police finally settle on their new highway patrol cars (11:15).
Frosty Chops is home (14:45), Richard received some fan mail but sadly isn’t here to respond to it (16:05), contrary to its US PR head’s belief it seems FCA may have been cheating its emissions tests (18:00) and BMW issues a 300,000 car UK recall (21:00).
Big motor shows look like they’re in trouble (23:10) and in our garage this week have been a BMW M5, Ford Everest Titanium and the coming-in-August Hyundai Ioniq hybrid (27:00).
James Cleary, Matt Campbell and Marcus Craft tear down, pressure test and rebuild the issues of the automotive week.
