Get Good Scrub

We are back! It's been a minute. This is episode 201, the crazy drunken 200th episode will come soon, so this is episode 201. First bit of news is the Mk5 Toyota Supra is now coming with a third pedal, which is awesome news; three pedal all the things! We then talk about the 400Z which we all now like unanimously, and the Toyota GR Corolla. Then we talk about how Subaru is completely in the toilet, and car crashes we've seen lately. We take a quick break, to ensure the existence of this...


Keep it Nice and Firm

Hi. Happy 2022! We hope you all had a merry Driftmas and Happy New Beer! Sorry 199 is late haha, classic. We kick off this week with news about the new near-$50,000 Honda Civic, and that new V8 SuperCars will come in 2023.... Which will be old cars when they kick off, but yes, another year for the Holden Commodore.... Somehow. Then Matt has a valid rant about tinfoil anti-vaxxers, and Joel talks about trying to run an engine without an ECU. Then Mitch admits to a bit of a cockup, and Matt...


Like A Bad Tinder Date

Hey. It's been a minute. Is that a new shirt? Looks nice. Anyways, here's episode 198! We kick off with a bit of bollocks, before breaking into some news. Chrysler has left Australia, which we don't really care much about, though it does mean the death of the affordable V8. We then talk about Dodge moving towards electric "muscle cars" and killing off their V8's. Porsche is FINALLY making a Cayman GT4 RS by shoehorning the GT3 engine in the back. We then talk about the Toyota GR86 being...


The Subaru Effect

We are back for episode 197! We kick off with a bit of bollocks, and talk about the Audi R8 being killed off in Australia due to changes in emissions regulations, but weirdly, the Lamborghini Huracan remains, and ADR-85 becomes a mandatory requirement for new vheicles sold in Australia. Joseph then talks about the Hyundai Staria people mover, which, we all actually think its pretty sick, and Mitch rants about indicator positioning on the Hyundai Kona rear indicator, and the Hyundai...


Use Your Peripherals

We are back for episode 196! This week Joseph kicks off with the news, and the first piece of news is Tesla claiming the Nurburgring Lap Record for Electric Vehicles with a 7m30s lap at an average of 166kph, and Italy wants an exemption from the E.U. for incoming electric car laws for supercar manufacturers. We then have pricing news about the 2022 Subary BRZ (for the Australian market), but initally only 500 cars will be coming in the first batch. We then take a couple questions from a...


An Irishman Having A Stroke

Hey, look at that, this episode is up on the right day! Fancy that. There's some actual automotive news this week, which is a nice change of pace, and is very welcome. We kick off the news with the new Toyota GazooRacing 86, the naturally aspirated FA24 powered successor to the wonderful GT86. We then talk about the new "400" Zed, with a 400hp twin-turbo V6, designed to tackle the MkV Supra with a proper 6-speed manual, and Barra-swapped Mustangs, then Matt makes one of his biggest takes...


We're Not Family Friendly Content

Due to a major PC fault, this episode was extremely delayed due to not being able to edit the episode. Mitch kicks off the news with the 2022 BMW 2 Series being leaked online, and it's an interesting looking thing, then Matt gets us playing a mini game of Would You Rather with Porsche Boxters, and GT86's, which is entirely unusual for us to talk about 86's. We then talk about how in the world Joseph daily's his GT86 racecar, and then we talk about Silvias, and the exciting world of car...


Wasabi Cars

Mitch is away for this episode, so it's just Matt, Joseph and Joel. The boys talk a bit about a LandCruiser 300 transport vehicle crashing and destroying the first lot od 300 delivery vehicles. Matt then talks about new vehicles coming, and an R34 GTR breaking a sales record of $415,000 AUD. Matt then talks about a recent offroading trip he took, where he learned that the DMAX is actually a pretty crap vehicle off road. Matt then kicks off the games with the 'Simon Special', before the...


Lotta Money for a Shopping Cart

Yeah, sorry it's been a month, our bad. Mitch kicks off the news with Ford America looking at adding "pop-up" style advertisements on in-car displays, then Mitch talks about Lamborghini beginning to phase out internal combustion engines entirely by 2030, and that Jeep Australia wins the case to block Mahindra from selling the Jeep-looking Thar in Australia Joseph then talks about the Hyundai i30N getting a facelift, and a very very slight performance boost, but now sells for $45,000, and...


The Devil's Avocado

We kick off this week's episode with usual bollocks, before Joseph kicks off the news. The first bit of news is about Jeep trying to stop Mahindra from selling their Wrangler-like Thar 4x4 in Australia. Joseph then talks about Toyota making a GazooRacing Hilux, which will be competing in the Dakar Rally. Then we talk a little about the fuel shortage in America, and a bit about the fuel situation in Australia. Joseph then talks about Ford Australia's cock up (lies) about the Australian...


The Holden Brisbane

We kick off this episode with Matt talking about Ford advertising the Mach 1 Mustang here in Australia. Mitch then talks about the International Olympic Committee including simracing in a digital Olympics via what is essentially GranTurismo Academy. Mitch then talks about the 300-Series' styling that was recently leaked online, which may be just for the Middle Eastern market; Australia, Japan, and other markets expected to get a different front end. Joseph then has another Public Service...


Makes Sense

Mitch: Chrome crashed, lost the description I had typed, too tired to start from scratch... We talk about news, argue about things, Matt talks about his LandCruiser and collecting a new CX-30, Mitch talks about his Prado and Integra, Joseph talks about his 86, and we play the 'Car World Cup' game that Joseph started a few episodes ago. Find us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and at / We have a merch shop!


Almost Cromulent

It's late, blame Jesus.... After a bit of bollocks, we kick off the news. Joseph kicks off the news with the new Toyota GR86 being officially unveiled, and Melbourne's Albert Park racetrack getting a refresh/overhaul. Matt then talks about a spanish company turning ND MX5's into classic-styled Jaguars. Mitch talks about Porsche and Volkswagen's attempt at making funnies for April Fool's Day.

Yankee Doodle

We are back for episode 187! This week, we kick off with the sad news of Sabine Schmitz losing her battle with cancer at the age of 51. We then briefly talk about some Toyota dealers charging up to $150,000 for new 200 Series orders, and a long wheel base Jimny being spied in camo-wrap fuelling rumors a 5-door variant might be on the horizon. We then talk about how the EPA in the United States are wanting to ban street vehicle "motorsport" modifications, and how SEMA is fighting back. We...


Thoroughbred Sportscar

We are back for episode 186 (though we say it’s 187, it’s not)! After usual bollocks, we talk about – and Mitch rants about – Subaru releasing a dual-cab ute called the Brumby, and seems like it’ll be based on the Toyota Hilux. Mitch then talk about Ferrari releasing the F171, a new 522kw ‘supercar’ powered by a hybrid V6, which is terribly sad, old man Enzo must be rolling in his grave, before talking about Ferrari making a return to LeMans in the new ‘Hypercar’ class (which replaces the...


Fit And Not Finished

This is probably our most left-of-field start to an episode ever... Joseph somewhat kicks off the news - what there is of it - this week with news about the Porsche GT3 RS (ps. we never came back around to Mitch's Porsche pick, we're not very good at our jerbs), and then Matt clarifies the Subaru Impreza/WRX/STi breakups. We then suggest what car Joseph should get to be a new daily driver, as the 86 is becoming a little too racecar for daily driver duties anymore. Matt then talks about...


Diesel Grunt Gets The Hmmmmmm

Late again. My bad, my bad. Matt isn't with us this week, but in his absence, we still managed to smash out a banger of an episode for your earholes. After some bollocks, Mitch kicks off the news with a bit more leakage from the Toyota marque around the 300 Series LandCruiser... And sadly, it does seem like the next Cruiser will have a 3.5L-hybrid V6 twin-turbo petrol, and potentially a 3.3L V6 turbo diesel... From which we talk about how it's time to move on from the 2JZ. Then we briefly...


Smashed By The Covid Tax

We are back! This week, Mitch kicks off the episode with a tale from his Saturday night concrete-sleeping adventure. Joseph then breaks into a real news topic by talking about the new 2021 BMW M5 CS. Matt then issues us a challenge by trying to find a 4x4 or a sports car that appears to not have been affected by the Covid Tax. Joseph then brings back the news by talking about SSC Tuatara actually breaking the high-speed record for real this time, by hitting 455km/h, and LMCT+ buying the...


Kia Potato

Yeah, it's late, but shhhh. We kick off the news this week with Joseph talking about the apparently 'new' Jeep Grand Cherokee, which looks a helluva lot like the old Grand Cherokee. Mitch then talks about FCA and PSA making it Facebook Official and forming a new group 'Stellantis'. Matt then talks about how 66% of Ford Australia's sales is the Ranger, which is causing some concern within the ranks of Ford Australia as the next Ranger is a shared platform with the Volkswagen Amarok, from...


Don't Let Your Dreams Be Memes

We are back! Happy 2021! We're sorry this episode is later than we had hoped, Corona decided to do an Empire and it striked back and buggered our plans to get back into your ear-holes last week. Anyways, we're back now. We had to re-record this week as GarageBand decided to F us and corrupt our first attempt at this episode, but we persevered. Matt then kicks off the news with a Finnish tyre company wanting to sell 'Lifelong tyres', and the new Ford Ranger has been spied in camo and it...
