We’re back for episode 159! This week, we manage to find some news to talk about despite it being a pretty slow news week.
Mitch kicks off the news with Porsche developing 3D-printed pistons for the GT2RS which allow the engine to produce 22kw more power, while being lighter, stronger, and more resistant to heat, AND increase the redline of the engine; all good stuff, from there Joseph talks about the Michelin Cup 2 tyres that were developed for the GT2RS and how incredible they are for a ‘street tyre’.
Mitch then talks about the Cosworth-developed engine specs of Gordon Murray’s T.50 Supercar, which redlines to 12,100RPM, and that the new Nissan 400Z should be in showrooms next year.
Joseph then has news about Mercedes recalling the G-Wagen 63 over a ‘misleading’ child lock symbol, of all things.
Joel talks about a recent drive with 2 of his other mates, one of whom had an old XJS V12 Jaguar which (predictably) broke down.
Matt then plays a game with us to guess a car, which then turns into a bit of news, before talking about Segway producing an electric dirt bike.
Mitch then talks about his first time learning to weld, and then we talk about the Porsche Taycan.
Joseph then talks about the absolute battle he had to remove the transmission fill-plug on his 86, and how his tyres were losing pressure with a simple fix.
Then Mitch and Joel talk about the progress made on their project cars.
Gears and Beers is hosted by Mitchell Denham, Joseph Riga, and Matt Morwood.
