    Agreed, excellent videography!

    If budget's the reason you won't make the trip I'd do some research. We did the Swiss, German and Austrian Alps in a rented S8 a couple of years back and even with the ridiculous car the whole trip was under $5k each. Accommodation can be surprisingly cheap if you stay in business hotels and even the food wasn't too expensive.

    Flights are fairly cheap too and Milan will put you within a few hours drive of everything the boys did on this trip.

    Paging Al & other 1GZ owners:

    Anybody got a spare stock 1GZ rod I can have / borrow? Have tee'd up a company to make some affordable forged units, but they want measurements etc. So I'll get that done on my end, just need a rod to work with.

    Nice.

    Anyone ever tell you that you should pop that dent in the rear bar out or that you should polish the headlights?

    I’m heading to Europe (just, it’s Slovakia) in September for a nerd RC event and am thinking of getting in a week or so early, flying into Milan instead of Vienna, going to Monza F1 and road tripping from Italy to Slovakia then back to Vienna to fly home.

    Hire car one way fees are ruining this plan at the moment!!!
    For the monza F1 I recommend camping trackside. Take what ever you might find useful with you.

    Buying and selling I think you need a local. Honestly without a ‘fixer’ we’d be rooted in most international films we do. Of course finding solid and switched on reliable people is really tricky!

    We actually gave Bjorn the car cause he totally fell in love with it, we would have had to pay to scrap/transport it anyway so rather it lived on. It had a semi-rooted cam sensor which is why we got such a slow 0-100 time. It came good every now and then but we weren’t able to get a new one unfortunately. It’s since been fixed and goes hard.

    So impressive. The quality of the camera work, the brilliant definition.

    I need to go there.

    You guys are smashing it in every way.

    Agreed 100%.

    Also, if you guys ever need a "fixer" in Perth, hit a brother up!

    That’s what I was thinking. Would need a local “fixer” on the ground.

    I really want to do the road trip - but the one way money for a car to get from Milan to Vienna is billshit.

    You're overthinking it.

    Milan-Vienna-Munich-Stuttgart-Switzerland-Milan.

    Europe is smaller than you think. We did Cologne-Nurburgring-Colmar-Switzerland-Austria and back again in less than a week with no particular haste.

    Do multiple quotes, I am hiring an e class for a week for not much more than 1500 with a one way drop off. Again, very easy and fast driving around Europe. Nothing like Australia.

    11 hours, 1066km apparently. Soft! I’ve done 1100km in a day in a Valiant with an effective top speed of 85km/hr.

    Fair call. That is a tight schedule.

    Just rewatched Turbos and TUV with the kids, and noticed a huge amount of moire on the black interior shots. Is anyone else getting it:


    Posted it on the FB group and a few others said the same thing.

    HDR is turned off on the ATV, so I doubt its that. Wondering if it was a setting on that GoPro as it doesnt appear in the later interior shots. Something funky with ProRes422 perhaps?

    Yes, I noticed it too. Not every shot, so maybe only related to one camera.

    Didn't lower viewing pleasure though, so no biggie.

    Maybe it was when the UV light was on and showing up all the jizz.

    Loved that episode too. Myself and the family did alot of the Germany / Austria / Switzerland / Italy etc roadtrip last year. It was so good. Although I blame Clarkson for pitching a trouser tent over the Stelvio pass about 10 years ago. Was probably one of the most disappointing driving road I've ever driven on. Narrow, slow, cyclists & buses everywhere and you need to be like a fucking owl trying to look over your shoulder at every turn to check and see if cars are coming the other way, which is hard given the severity of the turns and how built up the side of the turns are - often you can barely see what's coming against you until you are half way around the corner. Fantastic scenery though, the production value of the video was epic.

    tbh I was kind of sad they didn't drive the Grossglockner on the way from Bavaria down the Carinthia.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the latest skid Factory with the Hoff tuning the Mira/Charade/Pyzar thingy.
    Great amount of detail. Well done lads.

    Yep was great to see what happens in the mystical world of tunas.....

    And also nice if Al to do all the things we as a customer should not do to show us why.....

    Oh, and 200+ powers at the front wheel..... Even if it does have a LSD, lane changes will be a mere touch of the throttle.

    I only get a chance to watch these videos occasionally, but I watched the Stelvio Pass one because Stelvio Pass.

    Bravo. It's a fantastic film.
