Default Project Binky

Bored? Here's a link to the start of Project Binky, a plan to put a 4wd Toyota turbo engine and drivetrain into a Mini.

There's some serious engineering talent and some good humour - they are up to episode 31 (not sure if it's finished).

I've been following project binky for a while now, it's a good watch but it's quite a long project. The shell is off being painted at the moment.

You've also got their side project the escargot

What a blast from the past!
How's Binky doing - seems an age since he was on here.

I wondered that when I saw the title. What a turquoise blur his SV was.
...I then got about 2 hours deep in the video and forgot about everyting - I do love Minis, a lot of engineering there.
