He's 26 but has not cottoned on to the joke at all and happily wears it when he's out and I think even when he went to his girlfriend's parent's house yesterday. Absolutely hilarious- thanks gents for the brilliant t-shirt and great vids. 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  • Electric is interesting, but I'm a combustion engine kind of person. I think sound does have a good bit to do with it, but I don't think it's all. I think it's the overall experience. Like, you can watch a concert on your TV, but it's not the same as being there.

  • That first start up after working on it for weeks/months, that first idle burble, blipping the throttle and the smell, all that would be missing with an E build. Electric is cool and has it's place in the market, hydrogen is the way for petrol heads to move forward and with technology manufacturing today we can easily pull off multiple approaches to replacing patrol.

Did the 3.8 engine swap, brakes, full exhaust, suspension, tyres etc. Up for sale if there's any weirdos out there interested!

  • As someone whose running a stage 2.5 clutch with a light flywheel in my FRS I will say they are AMAZING for tracking and driving hard, but you do NOT want to daily one. In stop and go traffic/slow traffic it is PAINFUL as the car will shake, jerk and shudder like the space shuttle Columbia because you can’t shift as fast when moving slowly, and the sensitivity is wildly noticeable

  • I've been very excited for electric cars in the future, but the only concern I've had with this concept of a B16E is that manufacturers have more abilities nowadays to make life harder for us enthusiasts. You can just make your own aftermarket mechanical parts to replace the OEM stuff and nobody can stop you, but with serialized electronics and other similar parts it's not impossible to imagine that you'd have to modify every single electronic part on your car first for it to recognize your maaad mods. I'd be satisfied with hardparking a stock electric car at the KFC parking lot, sure, but I want to be able to modify my car too. Then again, I can't afford a proper car to mod in the foreseeable future anyway. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (I'll be buying a nugget sometime this year hopefully, you know it's getting neons and everything)

  • Moog is completely correct about the sound. Car companies spend millions on sound design for the doors closing alone. Because a heavier sound makes people feel safer and thus are more likely to buy the car than if it has a hollow soft sound. It's also the same reason many people put new exhaust systems. Many times the increase in performance is negligible but it makes it sound better.

  • I think the question of “will petrol engines die out?” Is a simple one. It’s all pretty much answered with watches and clocks. Most will be electric, and in many ways more accurate and less to maintain. But people will pay for the engineering and classic feel of mechanical. It’ll cost more and require more maintenance, but the new luxury with be mechanical in a few decades. Just like a Rolex.

  • Concerning the difference between an EV and ICE car, a really easy comparison to draw is with trains. Electric locomotives are cleaner, more efficient, more reliable, quieter and so on versus steam locomotives, but steam locos are much more exciting visually, aurally and by smell.

  • I think electric cars are cool but, until they have the same range and can be recharged as fast as you can fill your tank with petrol, I'm out. Unless, electric is the only option. I agree with Moog and think there is a sound component to driving a vehicle. Is driving better or worse with out it? That's a good question.

  • In my opinion the amount of torque you get out of an electric far outweighs the fun of the extra sounds you get from an engine. The first time you drive a proper electric vehicle built for performance you won't care that it doesn't make cool sounds. Now if we could just get batteries that were worth a shit it would be great.

  • What you said about the impact wrench is wrong, that's a speed control. I suppose slower rotation speed and thus also lower impact frequency (not force) will give you better control, but it's not actually limiting the torque, unlike a clutch on a drill-driver.

  • Electric cars may ... save the planet ... buttttttt... what will happen to all the stuff that is in those millions of batteries and what about all the steel and plastic in the cars themselves ... Interesting fact most of the native forests in Europe were cut down and BURNED by the 1600s... the rest were cut down and used to make coking coal for steel production to feed the industrial revolution. The only way to truly save the planet is to stop doing all the things humanity has done to impose order upon chaos... Making concrete, Making steel making things from plastic etc ... good luck making an iPad out of recycled coke bottles and paper. It ain't gonna happen. This is a one-way journey and the Kyoto emissions treaty isn't gonna stop it. Keep burning dinosaurs boys, as many as you can for as long as you can.

  • Pro tip, When using the alignment tool to align the clutch don't just slide it all together and bolt it down. 99% of the time the tool is hard to pull out like yours was and then you have a hard time aligning the transmission. Which is no fun when your bench pressing it up from under the car. It took me a while to figure out but you want the alignment tool to slide in and out very easily with minimal resistance. Just mess around until you can get the tool to go in and out smoothly. Your transmissions will go in like butter.

  • The old Mitsubishi Factory in Adelaide has been redeveloped into a "new suburb" called Tonsley park. There's tafe and flinders uni campuses there now. It still uses the old factory frame which is cool that it hasnt just been flattened to the ground (like what is being planned for the Fisherman's Bend Holden base.) Before Magnass and Sigmas it used to be a Chrysler factory where they built Valiants and mad old stuff like that. (I guess the changeover happened with the whole DSM thing) I used to live over the road and learnt to drive in the carpark when it was still a disused factory. (In a 380 no less.)

  • I have an idea what you can do with this car rather than conventionally boosting it - 8 years ago, you guys made a video, mythbusting electric superchargers. Basically a fan in the intake which did fuck all. Nowadays, they're actually in use in some of the newer German cars (stock) to reduce turbo lag. Companies have made them well enough to work properly - like phantom electric superchargers and torqamp electric turbochargers. I think it'd be awesome to see one of those on this civic, just to see how far the tech has come in those 8 years!

Even if they discontinue internal combustion engine cars, we should be able to drive around in our old cars like the heritage railroads that still continues to drive steam trains, so should we, to keep the knowledge and parts flowing for having our ICE cars running.

No sound of the engine, of the exhaust. No power delivery with the rpm increase (with electric motor, the higher the rpm the lower the power)...

  • The texture is important when we eat. The sound is important when we drive. I don't mind electric cars and I don't mind change. But there is something about it that kick-starts my heart with the explosions in the engine, just like when I enjoy a crisp sallad or a meaty stake.. Think of it like eating a "soup lasagne". Great taste, but no texture.. Fullfilleed?, no..

I'll go petrol/diesel at worst a hybrid until the UK culls off petrol and diesel with stupid prices at the pumps. The sounds of the vehicle is what keeps me buying cars, take away the sound and you've got the opposite of s Honda Civic 😂 No noise but super fast acceleration

  • The entire experience of a petrol engine is what drives me to love cars. It's a full sensory experience minus maybe the taste. Electric is cool for a novelty of "Oh wow it just goes and fast" but that's just one piece of the experience. I fear more and more that my hobby of cars will be killed by corporations lobbying for environmental change while they can't seem to practice what they preach, and by countries that pollute heavier than my entire city over the course of a week in a few hours.
