    I am trying to pick out the stupidest thing I ever did when trying to repair something. It has to be trying to bump start a well tuned enduro bike, which is basically a road legal off road racing bike. I was running along side, jumped on, dumped the clutch and as it sparked up, the front wheel flew up, deposited me on my rrrrs and proceeded to wheelie across a car park, Fortunately nobody was hurt and only my vehicle and pride were injured!

    TVR Tuscan has a straight 6 engine - Unless you mean the late 60s/early 70s Tuscan V8. Love the podcast!

    hey guys, regarding Gareth talking about not going to mechanic, would you think about starting series on how to fix your engine? Like I mean really thorough one taking all usual engines into account, for example how would I detect what's wrong with my mk3 mondeo tdci

  • Nipple Johnston

    A guy had just told me, 20+ yrs as ASE tech & A&P Spec, that he was now a better mechanic after 3 days watching YT repair videos. So I watched him remove all the lug nuts and then start jacking up the car. It was on a hill, out of gear only held by E-brake. I was amazed it didn't shift position and crash down on the frame sending wheels everywhere, until he was bending over to pull the 1st off.

    All my cars are practically a kit car after all the personalization & discomfort modifications are installed. There's a modification shop 5 miles away from me, and they restore original AC Cobras and will hand build a 850hp new vin model under their name.

  • RSScott

    No CBT. It's called CAR throttle for a reason lads

    You can't tell how much Gareth likes Superformance, can you? I can think of a few choice words for those people that are indecisive on the roads: nervous, evolutionary bell ends.

    "How am i gonna photoshop that one" i cried hahaha

  • Paz

    I wouldn't encourage/pester anyone to do their CBT, i've had 5 bikes and finally one big accident (non fault) which wrote off my last bike, other road users are way too dangerous and you'd feel terrible if someone knocked them off

  • Robert Woolsey

    What about the Maserati Gransport Coupe 4.2V8 - cracking engine and value for money (if it's got a full SH as otherwise could be ruinous!)

  • Wough _Tanker
    Wough _Tanker

    here's an idea for some videos as well as promoting safer bike riding - why not do your IAM or ROSPA advanced training. As an observer for IAM (we're not allowed to be called trainers) I can honestly say that it will make a world of difference to your biking experience... and it's NOT all bearded people doing 40mph everywhere (and that's the frmales 🤣)

    Regularly watching your podcasts somewhere in the north of Portugal, in my garage, in front of my half dismantled 94 fiat punto restoration project which I inherited from my grandfather. More of a sentimental value to the car than the actual pre-classic value of it once, although it is a rare spec, it still is just a 1.2 old punto with 325k km on the clock. Keep up the good work guys.

    Once I was sitting cross legged on the ground with a bowl of petrol/gas scrubbing some carbie parts clean with a brush when the bowl tipped all over my groin..............instant burn like being dipped in molten lava ! .... I ripped my pants off and thrust my groin under a running tap to a chorus of laughter from my mates! It stung excruciatingly for 5 minutes.

    Worst selling decision ever was selling a 1989 911 Supersport (one of only 237) in 2002 for £15K. They are now £120K. I still cry about that everyday :(

    "TVR's not that reliable"!!!!!!! Bollox. I bought a 1999 Tuscan in 2001 for £39,995. I had it for two years & it was off the road for 18 months. After £20K bills, two new engines & multiple other issues later I sold it for £15K. Worst purchasing decision EVER!!

    My friend died in may this year because he was riding like an utter cock womble. Estimated at over 120mph in a 20mph residential area at 5am. 4x4 pulled out of a notoriously blind junction, my mate grab the front brake dropped the front and hit the car at over 90mph. The last hour of his life he suffered the worst injuries I’ve ever seen someone breath with. He was the nicest guy I met but one hell of a dick head on a bike. The car driver was never at fault, he didn’t stand a chance and has to live with this for the rest of his life. I ride every day, riding is my life but people need to go on track for those speeds.


    Is it me, or does Garrett sound like he is from South Africa?
