E106: You’re Not You When You’re Sober

We’re back for episode 106, and we start off with Matt and Mitch talking about them doing Dry July, before introducing our special guest for this week,  Tim Griffiths.

Tim starts us off this week with talking about his car history, starting with a Mk4 Volkswagen Golf which had all sorts of gearbox issues. Tim replaced the Golf with a Kia Rio, which also had gearbox issues. The Rio was briefly followed by a BMW 735i, before getting a Ford Ranger which had 4WD issues, and replacing it with his current car, a Holden Colorado.

We then argue about ‘built not bought’, and Tim talks about the one time he tried to replace his handlebars, which didn’t go well.

Matthew then tells us a story, about how a side-deal he did backfire on him, and a slight issue he’s had with his LandCruiser.

Mitch kicks off the news about the death of Lee Iacocca, the father of the Mustang, and the saviour of Chrysler in America.

Tim then brings up the Ferrari SF Stradale, which we pick and pull apart.

Mitch then brings up news about the Australian Government introducing new motor vehicles standards in-line with Euro cars. They are introducing laws to force all new cars to have alcohol/breathalysers and drug testers in the car which will stop the car from driving if they test positive for drugs and/or alcohol.

Joseph then talks about all new electric cars being launched in the E.U must emit a noise comparable to ICE vehicles up to 20Kph.

Tim then talks about in-car mobile-phone tech, we all talk about old people and technology, and WRC planning to go electric.

Matt then talks about how he cannot wait for VR Motorsports to make their sim-rigs to fit bigger people.

Tim then talks about the Mercedes SLS being the latest victim in the Takata airbag recall, and Tim ends the show about a giant bloody train called ‘Big Boy’
