4WD Mini Project, Epic Build Videos

I found this series of 9 x 20min videos on YouTube showing a very entertaining build of a 2L Turbo, 4WD Mini. The engineering on this project is impressive and the fabrication amazing.

If you watch the first episode, I'm sure you'll want to watch the rest.

Agreed.

I am finding this collection of videos REALLY interesting.

They are Very Clever guys. The work is ridiculously complicated and unnecessary but captivating.

Terry, John, Wyn etc you will get a lot out of this I think.

Splendid... just watched episode 12, epic fabrication skills as usual. By the way the car will be on show at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on stand 77 regardless of whether it is finished or not. Anyone who has seen these videos will want to pay a visit.

Episode 14 of the 4wd Mini build now on YouTube https://youtu.be/mB4NXA_vNWs. In this episode the guys are extending some off the shelf arches to make a pattern. Not as amazing as earlier episodes, but I guess all the main fabrication work is now complete. If you haven't seen this series before, start at episode 1, you won't be disappointed.
