Car Coach Reports' Lauren Fix Talks the Audi Diesel Truck Trial
"Question we've only got a minute left. You got to follow her car coach reports dot com Lorraine fix lord and fix on Twitter. You sent me a story. I haven't even had a look at it. What is the disaster of the Audi diesel truck trial? Just give us give us a little tea so everybody can go and read your report. Okay, it's Anna website on YouTube called vin wiki, VI and wiki, and I've submitted 7 stories to him. I went down to his place in Atlanta. And we tell car stories and one of those was a very interesting accident.

"Many cooks, so and conflicts of interest or whatever. Actually, again, I say this, you know, the heavy heart following a debt of teachers masters, but I say, I think Alfred tauri now is probably the prime prospect. I think there certainly was speculation that although he wasn't that wasn't actively in a shop window, sort of you can make backdoor deals and discuss a price, but I can see that, you know, let's say some money has been set aside to keep Red Bull going and with the power trains and how they might sell that to other teams, how that becomes self sustaining. I think at the junior team, that is maybe a bit more of a drag, but it's an established decent race team. So I think that's where you would go in with Porsche, but then what do they get? Because we understand that they want to come in as a basically to write a big old check for a Red Bull powertrain that was. So then they have to be a lot more active, which again, I don't think suits them. We know that Audi, they're engine F one program, how are they going to get so far aligned is they're going to pick up this poor shelved test meal from a few years ago. So Porsche don't even have their own engine concept to work with. So then it gets very complicated. So any deal with getting Hass up to the budget cap or whatever just seems a bit far fetched. So perhaps it might be the inverse of whatever we're expecting is that it could end up with a point where let's say it's hypothetically Williams with an Audi engine, but it will say Porsche on it. And so not to be really pessimistic about it all, but I think it could end up being a damp squid where you look at the glory years of Porsche in F one. You think of McLaren in the mid 80s. Well, that was actually a tag privately funded thing with poor script on it. And I think we could get somewhere similar where it's Porsche in name only and with a great big check behind it. Yeah, it's really interesting to see what happens in the automotive world in terms of VW group have their MEB platform which they're new. Electric cars are built on like the ID cars from Volkswagen, the any axe from Skoda, the E trons from Audi, and it's all the same platform, and they put on their badge and their own software, but it's still a shared cost and Honda have gone to GM in America to make their things like the acuras and the hondas and GM are using there. So it is more than a re badging. I'm not being I'm not doing it down, but it's the way that automotive with electrification is going. And it always seemed so crazy that at that time, two separate programs for Porsche and Audi, but anyway, let's leave there.

"I mean, it is the same way so I was speaking to someone and I'm sure people can take an educated potshot who it was, but someone very high up in the Porsche 9 one 9 program. I said, well, really, they just ran with Porsche badges on the car. The reason that was successful is because it was a completely different race team set up that just happened to have a check funded by Porsche. They were completely autonomous because they didn't want people wearing suits with nice ties to intervene in slow things down and for it to be really sort of levels of bureaucracy, which is actually that same person was a bit concerned initially when I already did their press conference bar because they're like, right. So announcing it, we've got the chairman of Audi, and the technical director of all of Audi, but no F one boss, which we now have in Adam baker. Formerly BMW Sauber. But they were like, oh, it was too corporate too corporate. So it's, again, it's more about that having that level of autonomy that Sauber Audi, Audi Salvador operates as a conducive F one team. How those two integrate is probably small fry and we'll have similar effects on how competitive they are. So how Audi let the whole F one thing operate under its bigger umbrella and then the Volkswagen group again. So I think that is more determining factor rather than just because one's got a Switzerland postcode and the other is Germany. Absolutely. And in terms of you mentioned BMW Sauber, so let's sort of segue into that really. In terms of getting back to that level of success, which is the last time that that team had a good deal of success, although this year had more recently brought some developments to the car, which shows they can develop a car. Perhaps not always get it right on the day. If you look at Kota, but in terms of Audi coming back into the or coming into the sport and Sal we're getting back towards the front end of the grid. To wheel out another cliche, only one team can win and all the teams say they can win. What will be the kind of pressure that you think the teams are the team itself, the board, the fans, F one journalists, will start to put on them to be successful. I mean, I guess what I'm asking is, how much of a grace period, if any, are they going to have coming back in? Three years, three years now, they've made that rod for their own back because they said, you know, within three years we want to be competitive. What does that mean? Well, you would say, for Audi, which is one everywhere, world rally, LeMond, whatever, world endurance championship. Formula E, even you would say that being competitive means out at a baseline of podiums. But race wins. And to get there, okay, we've got another regular regulation change that will facilitate that in 2026, but you know, massive ground effect shift for this year, which meant to allow more freak results like Hungary last year where ocon can win on his day or gasly at monzo or and so on. But we haven't had that. So at the minute, it's still to win. It's still Red Bull and Ferrari they're sharing. You'd still put Mercedes in that bracket. So for Audi to come in, if stuff made or the competitive order maintains it, one of those probably has to come out. So you can then start to identify who that is, but then they've got by that point now what 12 years of hybrid experience and order successive. In a 2000s. And so then you start looking at if Audi kart mix it by 2029 is three year period falling short. You know, the reason perhaps we're quite harsh on Alpine is because they're the ones that said in 5 years we'll be winning world championships and then at the start of this year they'll go no no what would mean it's hundred rates starting from now and they keep redrawing the timeline. But Audi have come in straight away and said three years is when we want to be competitive and although it will have cost a lot of money, they're not again we're probably heading into a period of a ten year recession now. If you're in the accounts department, you go, what do we do? We've already killed the Audi a one because we don't make a big enough margin on it. We've already stopped doing formulary. But F one, it's consuming 500 million pounds between a race team and a marketing department and an engine program. Well, that's a pretty big program to kill and get a lot of money back from. So yes, Audi, and to link it to Porsche, one of the prerequisite supports coming in with Red Bull is that they're not going to go their own way after two years. This is for a ten year deal minimum. And you expect Audi to treat it similar, but only if only if they're competitive, you know, if you think to God, here's another tortured analogy. You know, George Bush standing on an aircraft deck and going mission accomplished. When he had achieved absolutely nothing in the gulf region. What is that Ferrari? When can they go? You know, like with all the formula E exit announcements, we're going, well, we came here, we developed a powertrain, we won and did nothing. Yeah, but you still don't settle in a single electric car. So can you really say mission successful? What is that for Audi, they can't come in and go right well, we've had, you know, we've been here 7 years now. We've got a couple of 8 places for and gone. They want to be competitive. It's a massive name. So baseline is podiums, but come on, we're all thinking we're all thinking world championships and then you've got to build a structure around that drivers. And whatnot, but yeah, it's a massive task ahead. And a driver development program or if you haven't got that, just going out with a big old checkbook and working out who you can get, who's not already signed up on a long deal. But that's probably the topic for another podcast, the driver market. At final word on Porsche then, because over the cota weekend, there was talk of, they still have an ambition to enter Formula One. Now it seems to me that they wanted to come into Red Bull, more than the Audi Salvador casaubon, it seems get a lot out of the Audi deal. Red Bull winning world championships. Porsche coming in, you know, with all respect, they're going to want to behave a little bit like Porsche and I don't think Red Bull wanted to make that compromise. It seems sensible that deal fell apart because why would Red Bull do that unless they were looking for an exit from the sport to eventually sell, you know, do the whole kind of well we sold 49% and now it's 51% and then they're out. So in a way that Mercedes came back in and bought Braun GP and then kind of gradually we're like, okay, we want all in all. That's also more complicated because a pretty big shareholdings from the likes of ineos and total wolf. So in terms of Porsche, where does this all fit in? Do they want to be a works team? Do they want to just be a sponsor like Alfa Romeo have been with Sauber? Do they want to go and buy give it a couple of years and then go to the Red Bull organization? Is AlphaTauri really working out for you? Like we'll buy that. How can Porsche fit into this whole storyline? It is a bit of a mess, isn't it? Because I totally get the argument and it was one in a few months ago, I spouting that wide Porsche, don't want Helmut Marco being a loose cannon and going up to the media and going, wow, well, Bottas, what the hell does he know driving like that? I can understand why let's do that. But I can understand why they don't want that. But the cops definitely came from Red Bull side going we're nimble. We've got ourselves back into a winning organization because we operate this way with hornos are de facto number one, whatever. We don't want Porsche coming in, adding these levels of bureaucracy, so a three week decision. Now take 6 months and we have to have our person who will then clash heads with Horner. I get why that didn't happen. But it's now where do they go? I've seen talk of you know, they could, you know, they've got this Porsche Andretti Dale in formula where you could bring that over. And while that makes sense if you are going to have an 11th team, it has no OEM and it's Andretti big news come in. I've just seen there's been so little accommodation for anything Michael Andretti is said by those already in F one. I don't think I assume it's plausible. And to me it makes perfect sense, but there's been just zero warmth towards that idea. So I'm not saying it get off the ground at the minute. Williams seems like a sensible option to me to go in there. I think Aston Martin has probably, I think, if you look at the wider Aston Martin group, the fact it now has investment from Mercedes and geely, I don't think you then have room for a Volkswagen group member to come in.

"Perhaps you'd expect a driver being paid handsomely to defend their team to the hills, but you know, if you look at McLaren three, four years ago, you say, well, the reason they can't win is because a wind tunnel is an up to spec. So that's why they're getting their brand new shyly one online for 2024. But we know that him will facility at Sauber is amazing, all those LMP1 cars at a designer and then go on to blitz circuit Della Sartre and all of that, it's a cracked facility, but they're not, yeah, and as you mentioned they're not operating at the cost cap. So some of that means they're slow with parts so they can design something pretty mega but then can't construct it, can't get it on both cars. But also if you're not operating at cost cap, you know, this is why the arguments for breaking the cost cap with the allegations at Red Bull are so strong because there is performance to be gained there. So if you think Alfred have taken it or sailboats, we should probably start referring to taking that decent step forward. They're now midfield contenders, which is no mean feat, considering that car would not do two or three laps without going bang in pre season testing, but now a bona FIDE midfield contender with some more investment with the more loving playing field of the cost cap. So again, if they keep on investing, they would expect them to start to begin to catch up. So if I could use a poor analogy, I'm an Aston Villa fan Martin and we've just signed a new manager in Unai Emery, and it's not about going and winning the Premier League in the next three seasons. It's about being the best of the rest, which I think is the next target for that Sauber operation that we did sign of the chassis. And then it's about what they can do when they're running well. They probably the Audi side is probably been through a couple of team leaders to find the right one and then you start investing together to build incremental gains with the engine and whatever. And then in their words, take on or be the best German manufacturer in what was that awful they did something like the rings of the new stars or something which basically means move over Mercedes. And I think when they probably put that out what they're anticipating is beating Mercedes at the top rather than thinking Mercedes have regressed to where they are now. Okay, look, let's take a quick break and when we come back we'll talk about how it might work from a team versus engine perspective, many teams do split those two bases and successfully in some cases and will have a look to what they could be doing over the next three years to ensure that they have the best drivers from 2026 to take on that three year plan of getting to the front of the grid. Those are stories are on the way. Okay, let's talk a little bit about Matt, your opinion on how it might work. Audi have their obviously their base in Germany, their motor sport base. But as you've mentioned already, actually, the henville facility, the wind tunnel there, which has been around a long time now, but I gather has been updated and is still used very much as a source of revenue. As a business line to rent out. And it's still very if not cutting edge is still very, very good. One of the best in the world. Many teams do split. So the world champions, Honda and Red Bull, Red Bull powertrains based here in the UK and Milton Keynes. And then some of the, I think the stuff that Honda are very, very good at. They would say the combustion engine side is still done in Japan. Also split, Renault, Alpine. If you like France and perhaps less successfully, you could say lots of teams split engine and team and some have it all under one roof. I know the Christian Horner recently has been using that phrase that Red Bull power trains and Red Bull is able to build a car and an engine under one roof. I think it was an interview with Fred. A Ted sorry when he went to his house over the break and he was talking a lot about Red Bull powertrains. It was interesting that he was making that and sort of before the re loving with Honda. I guess, but what's your opinion on how it could shake out? Because it's not like Audi are going to buy their way into Sauber. Close down their base, which is not the biggest, but nothing to be ashamed of and move it all to Germany. So they're going to have to split it, not a million miles apart physically. How do you think it's going to shake out? Well, the one Barrett that would be the enormous cost and two if in rising does retain this small percentage. He'll say that that doesn't happen. But I think it's an interesting discussion, isn't it? Because then where do you draw the line? So, you know, like you talk about Red Bull being based in the UK and Honda in Japan. But what about Mercedes with the engine being done at brixworth and end up being an hour's drive to the chassis in brackley? What about even Red Bull when they go with their Red Bull powertrains online? Well, they're still separated by a factory rule in Adrian newey. It might be masterminding the design of the car, but he's not over same engine. Look at auto sport, we have the distinct magazine and the website. Has that necessarily changed from when we always used to be in the office together to now us communicating on Zoom and Microsoft Teams and other online software since pandemic not necessarily. So I don't really buy that as a barrier. I can see why it might be a handy excuse or whatever, you know, you think of maybe a better way to look at it rather than sort of the physical locations getting bogged down and that is the philosophy to use a really grandiose term. The concept that the approach, but that's why the McLaren Honda partnerships fell apart so much because one was had Mercedes sorry, because McLaren had designed this what it thought was a class leading better than anyway. I was size zero Coke bottle shaped package. The Honda engine barely could fit in. And so because it was basically crowbar in there, it was getting too hot and kept going bang all the time. So you can add these two class leading organizations, but unless they integrate well, it's not going to happen. So that's when you would say Sauber is still Sauber engineer is and there will still have this minority ownership and stuff. But effectively, if they're all using Audi headed letter paper, you'd expect them to run with the same approach and therefore they can integrate well and be harmonious. So I don't see it being a major issue. And in terms of Audi, bigwigs or the marketing department with the ideally wanting all in Germany, yeah, I get that, but does it really matter? I mean, it is the same way so I was speaking to someone and I'm sure people can take an educated potshot who it was, but someone very high up in the Porsche 9 one 9 program. I said, well,

"Best gauge for all of this Martin is to look at the deal that didn't happen. That was Andretti would Sauber and so apart from the half billion pounds it now cost to take over an F one team. There's now Finn rosling who came in to save Salva. He doesn't want to see his hard work go for nothing. So that means shoring up that facility and his employees, which is what Audi. It's a really bad cliche from the classic car world, but they say you're never an owner of a classic car you're a custodian. You preserve it for the next person. And I think that's the mantra or the philosophy that Finn Rosen wants to be adopted for his saddle organization he wants to see investment in there so it remains a major employer and his safeguard. It's not to say that in 5 years time he's out of the door and Audi can set up shop in Germany and to go with their press release when he announced that Belgium Grand Prix German engine German car clear off Mercedes, this is what we're doing. And that is what we understand that he will retain a percentage, let's say arbitrarily, it's 20% Audi will be the biggest shareholder in the setup, the majority of the call or the shots, but he will say stay there to preserve that site. So could you speculate maybe up to 80% something like that and I also don't think it's unreasonable to expect that that will be the end goal in 2026, but at this present point in time, it's a smaller percentage of equity and it will build up over the coming years. It's the alpha stickers stick away and Audi builds up. But no, we don't know the exact details, but I would speculate it's something along those lines sort of progressive and beyond just writing a big check, I think there's an expectation to keep on plowing investment, not only to preserve the team, but also Audi wants to be king competitive, and that means spending to get to the top. So how does it work in the interim period, which is really fascinating because Alfa Romeo, there's nothing Alfa Romeo inside that Salva. It's a sponsorship deal, although it's so cool and sexy to have the Alfa Romeo name on the team entry list. They don't have an Alfa Romeo factory churning out Alfa Romeo, turbo hybrid engines. So they have a title sponsorship of that car through next year 2023. Ferrari have an engine supply deal through the end of 2025, then from 2026, it'll be an Audi in the back of it. How does this all play out in terms of Audi? However you want to shake it out. A competitor to Ferrari. Now whilst Audi don't make hypercars. They do make things like the Audi R 8. That's going to go electric at some point. They make E Tron GT. A 150 grand cars, which is kind of Ferrari territory. How does that all square away with Audi being an investor and increasing investor in a team where Ferrari are going to be supplying the engine to that and presumably a lot of IP and knowledge potentially being leaked, which they are not going to let happen. So how do we do this next two or three years? I think there will be three distinct stages to it. So we'll have the alpha branding, which as you say, is means Zhou and Bottas can turn up in a company car and I have to say, I disagree with the alpha boss, our colleagues at my spot dot com interviewed him sort of about three months ago. And he was saying, oh, it's been a great success. It's F one project studded exactly what we need to. Well, I would think if you're in the finance or accounts office at Alfa Romeo, you beg to differ that you're still not lighting up the showrooms, but that's by the bike. Anyway, back to your question. We have deal up until the end of next season. I then think the paint shop will peel off those Alfa Romeo stickers and we'll revert to the sort of 2010 spec where it will just be Sauber in name only, but effectively an engine deal with Ferrari. Like you say that they won't be privy to anything that's going on there will be no IP carry over it. It will be delivered in a locked box and bolted into the back of that car and they won't be able to crack open and see what makes it tick as it were. So, you know, I suppose it might be fun to speculate, would they go back to their black livery of 2014, 2015, the white of Sauber before, whatever, whatever, but then from 2026, you'll see those four rings appear and judging by the spa livery on that concept car in there. There'd be a bit of day glow orange for you and maybe some white and grayscale like old Audi quattros, that sort of racing livery, but three distinct stages I reckon. I love it. And I love thinking about how that's going to Ferrari will not want an engine to be falling off the back of a lorry and going missing somewhere. As you say, I'll be under lock and key because as they lose the Alfa Romeo sponsorship, is that money comes out, you know, that's a team anyway that hasn't exactly been bumping up against the top of the budget cap. Anyway, which they were going to get to, I think, this year or next year with increased investment. So the Audi investment will come in. And as owned by the VW group, enormously deep pockets of which being an entry in Formula One requires. So money won't be a problem for Sauber, running Ferrari engines for those two years. What are the regulations for Audi coming in? Because there's obviously a cost cap on running a team just pick an example catering, don't know why I thought of that. There's a cost cap on running a team. And there's a cost cap on building an engine. So Audi now they've announced this. They have a big facility in Germany, as you say, for their sports cars. It used to be for formula E as well. They have a big motor sport presence. Actually, more than Porsche, we'll get onto that. And so they're not free to go away and spend half a $1 billion or Euros on their engine projects. And now they're under the engine cost cap rolls. Which in typical Formula One way are actually more complicated for new entrants going to get a little bit more money. But how do you think that that will work in terms of the team? Because the team are going to need some money, they're going to need boots on the ground. If Audi are putting their money in, they're going to want some Audi team members in there helping to run Sauber. Could that be a source of conflict or an opportunity for the team to actually get their operations a bit more slick? I think you have to look at it at the latter. So I had a conversation with our two Bottas about this a few Grand Prix ago. It might have actually been spa, yeah, when the Audi engine program was announced, but not the linking up with Sauber and the question put to him was you have moved from Mercedes to Sauber. Yes, everything's smaller, but have you identified any reason why this team can not win.

"Strategic partner for their entry into Formula One in 2026 Sauber confirming the Audi will buy a stake in the company, but we don't know how much it follows the news that Porsche's Red Bull deal was called off when that was looking almost certain. So today we look at the new entrance into Formula One and we ask why has F one been so keen on getting the VW group into the sport. What it means for alda, Audi, Sauber, and Alfa Romeo, and can Audi, be competitive when they arrive, let's get up to speed. With auto sports, Matt's Q greetings, sir, you are UK based for a little while, which means no jet lag. How's things going? Absolutely. Not too bad. Although I was driving till very late last night, some of it tired today, but that was called a one lag or M1 lag as opposed to jet lag. I imagine the alarm was going off early. There's work to be done. Absolutely always in always in the world of an all sport journalist, always worked to be done. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, in case the boss is listening. Let's talk about new entrants coming into Formula One. It's a fascinating, fascinating time, and it's one of the details obviously amongst the sadness of Dietrich mateschitz passing away at the weekend, and somebody kind of noted it as almost an aside, but I found it a really interesting comment that the Red Bull Porsche deal, which was ultimately called off because we'll find out your opinion on that could have been his last big influence on Formula One. I thought that was interesting. And then the news that we found out yesterday that Sauber and Audi are teaming up for the future from 2026 and the new regulations. Now, many formula teams have come and gone over the years, but recent times, the modern era, let's call it. Have seen a degree of stability. How did we get to where we are today? Ah, I know it's so boring and answer, but it's Netflix, isn't it? You know, it's a drive to survivor. It's a popularity. It's we record this after the U.S. Grand Prix which had 440,000 people going at record attendance. It's that popularity that has meant that really dismantle it always sticks around with motor sport. If you win on Sunday, you sell on Monday and albeit he's now been ousted as CEO because the electric shifted Volkswagen was a bit pants, but her but the former CEO addressing members of Wolfsburg where Volkswagen is based saying, we do this, we're going to sell a load more cars. So if let's just say hypothetically, you would spend 500 million a year on F one, we reckon we can make a billion pounds from it. And so when you put it as simple as that, it's good. So, you know, same for Porsche, they think, to market the 9 11 as best as possible, they need to be the sports brand and how would you be the sporters? Well, you know, LeMond's lemon is amazing, but how many eyeballs should you get on that? We need to be in F one. So that's where the interest has come from. You know, we're here at other manufacturers, but I feel like in 2022, everything today would Formula One has been the worst kept secret, but Audi announcing its partnership with Sauber. We have known about for months. I think even readers with only a passing interest will sort of aware aware of that. And actually, it is interesting, as you say, to touch on the death masterships, obviously recently very sad, you know, team bosses, rye always coming around saying about his impacts across mode sport and I don't think it'd be wrong to put two and two together to get the conclusion that yes, him being aware as of his own declining how I thought even as anyone it has to be pragmatic when you're in your late 70s about shoring up the future of your greatest asset, your prized possession, something that will define your legacy almost. I think partnering Red Bull with a massive deep pocketed prestigious OEM like Porsche was a part of that, but equally he has to take responsibility that he wants to see Red Bull continuing his successful image. And if aligning with Porsche or not aligning was to the detriment of that, then here is equally right to bin it off as well. Now when they won the constructors championship over the weekend, they unfiled a big banner in the paddock at Kota, which said something like Red Bull likes it on top. And I just can't imagine Portia in Formula One, unveiling a banner in 5 years time saying Porsche likes it on top. And it's like, at that for me, was Red Bull, they were all wearing blue jeans, and it was very much his legacy, like you say. Let's dig into the announcement yesterday that we heard that Formula One had finally able to confirm the worst kept secret. That Sauber becomes a works team for Audi, but there are some key missing details in this. Can you try and fill us in as much as you can because we don't know what the stake is going to be in them. But we do know that Audi is acquiring a stake in the team that they will be a works team that Audi want to put an Audi engine in the back of that Sauber. So what do we know about the deal and what are the missing jigsaw pieces that we're still going to have to fill in?

You get, but after coming into scene science and stuff with the picture of Audi it actually looks and of course the cartoons and all of that, I'm like, see that there's no floods. So the fact that these already valid proof to this and they are still doing a fact. Yes. We know that. It's not around. It's spherical. I feel like it's actually spinning on its head. It's not spilling out at the center, but that was just getting too technical. But basically, different opinions. So you know, going forward now, there was a difference of opinion. In the atmosphere, the atmosphere, but now that it made it interesting. Like the idea of research on we want to know we want to know what to know. It made it interesting. So now, the edge is not flat. Now we know that. But still that difference of opinion did no it doesn't. If you want to see it as entertaining, because when you get really routable to see the sole people still think the edges floods. I would be like, these people know that the edge is not flat. They are new. So they know they know. They're just being in denial. Not even in denial. It's just to me like it's just like, they just want to be valid. Because now you have disproved over what they believed in. What do you want them to do? So they don't just keep saying that. The government is like, yeah. I sent it to you. I think it's on your phone. So basically what I want is I want the difference of opinion on issue. Because if I collect opinions, it's get reported to be too long and then you would know that I'm just adding in people's opinions. Just to please you. Which I don't want to do. I want you to be an interactive session whereby maybe you're listening to something that you feel like you can relate to. Yeah. That's why I brought you on as my co host. Yes, that's me, me, me and la la Lua. The person you slid through. What option? So I told her to clarify, I don't know. Okay, so I asked you to be the coolest about you, you agreed to. What was the reason? Well, I'll say one, I want to know that I think for the past, for the past few years, I've always been one to run away from new things, anything I feel like I can't do to just have that slight feeling I can't do. And even with my business, I was always doing the same set of designs and the same. So I think she's. On Instagram. That's on that score. I underscore. So she makes a contemporary style. They are really, really beautiful. Yeah. You can check it out. Thank you all in the show notes in the description. I'll drop a number. So you can text on WhatsApp, or I'll put the link there. So yeah, so I was saying, in my business, I was always in the same set of design things and this year so it's like out of my box if it's scary, but I was excited to, and I learned, I made mistakes. I made beautiful designs, and I learned a lot so to me it was like, oh, if anyone ever told me that I'll be in the podcast I'll be co hosting the podcast out sooner like no. So now it's just coming up to me. I don't think running we should be rethinking. If I said no, the only reason I would have said no that's been because I was scared. Not because of any other reason because I know I've been on this show and it was very fun. It was very interesting for me. So I had fun. So the only reason I said no was because I was scared so I don't want to be scared and I was trying new stuff so I said yes. That's why. Yeah, okay. That's interesting. I do not need this time. Nice. So, yeah. That's it about the introductory, so now you know. Yeah, now you know. Yeah, that's just the introduction. So coming up with this nice voice for like next level. I'm still seeing. Let me boost myself now. Yeah, like I said, coming up would be talking about her, myself. I wish she has to offer because you know this should be. Yes, no. But she was coming up. But you asked me now, you'd have thought of what I have to do. But I just said it now..

"I don't like this, or I'm not open to this right now. And there's so many other options other than those three. Those are just the three that I came up with off the top of my head. So I would just say take it slow and be very cautious and sensual and just very open to all of these different kinds of experiences that you're going to have in your sexual relationship because you might try something that you've never tried before or that you think sounds weird or crazy and it turns out you like it. You enjoy it. And that's great. That's absolutely that's what you want to have in a sexual experience is that openness and not willingness to be able to try various and incendiary things that you may or may not like. So that's sort of my advice on that. And just be very gentle with yourself. You know, just be very, very gentle. Oh, you even say in the email right here. I'm so sorry. I'm really self conscious of my belly button as well, due to it being an Audi. So I guess I didn't have to read between the lines. I just needed to read a little bit farther down. I'm so sorry. My fault, I completely missed that line right there. But yeah, I would just say be aware of that about yourself and that self consciousness and that and I would be as open with your partner as you can about that self consciousness. And that fear, there seems to be a little bit of fear there. Because it makes me feel a bit weird, odd, not out, due to having an Audi belly button that sticks out. I know Audi's aren't that popular in the world in the world only a certain number of people have Audis, maybe like 5 to 10%. I don't know if that's true. I don't know if that's true..

I have always found the very most valuable moment in virtual reality to be the moment. When you take off the headset and your senses are refreshed and you perceive physicality afresh. You know as if you were newborn baby. But with a little more experienced he can really notice just how incredibly strange in delicate and julia impossible. The real world is Sue the magic is and perhaps forever will be in the physical world. Well that's my take on it. That's just me. I mean. I think i don't get to tell everybody else how to think or how to experience retreat. At this point there have been multiple generations of younger people who've come along and liberated me from having to worry about these things But i should say also even in a what. I called it mixed reality back in the day in these days. It's called augmented reality But with something like a hall and even then like one of my favorite things to augment a forest. Not because i think the forest needs augmentation but when you look at the augmentation next to a real tree the real tree just pops out as being astounding you know it's it's interactive. It's changing slightly all the time if you pay attention and it's hard to pay attention to that but when you compare to reality all of a sudden you do and even in practical applications My my favorite early application of retrea audi which we prototype going back to the eighties. When i was working with dr joe rosa and at stanford med near near where we are now. We made the first surgical simulator and to go from the fake anatomy of the simulation which is incredibly valuable for many things for designing procedures for training things then to go to the real person. Boy it's really something like Surgeons really get woken up by the transition. It's very cool. So i think the transition is actually more valuable than the simulation

"It's a very easy car to drive. When you don't put it into the crazy rs modes it actually doesn't even feel like it's super fast so it it ran great. It's real comfortable. There's plenty of room in it basically. Rs seven is the four seat hatchback with the with the with the swooped roof line. If you need more space the wagon is five seat with more room in the back and then from there you could step up to the suv. Who does to their design team all across the board. They're gorgeous cars. The only issue i had and this is. This is probably just a dealer fix of some sort. But two of the three audi's that i drove had some issues with the doors opening. I there's some sort of electronic thing happening in the door like you pull the handle. And i think it's an electronic thing that's popping. It's not very mechanical. So i had pulled one of the doors a couple times from the outside of the vehicle and it took like two tries for it to open. So there's some. I don't know if something needs to be calibrated or creased or whatever or programmed or something there that's less of an issue because you're trying to get into the car and maybe it was just a delay like i. I don't know something was some version of the computer chip or whatever was like kind of warm. It's kinda like getting into the car and you're like man. Seems like my infotainment systems taking forever to boot up today. Felt like a version of that again. Not that big of an issue. Because you're trying to get into the car and it was when i got into it the first time it wasn't later like as i don't know the car was warmed oppor. Electronics were fired up so the issue was getting out of the car. The the passenger seat that opening the door didn't unlock it. So you couldn't open the door and then when you hit the unlock button on the passenger side it it didn't.

Men should be an interesting ride for sure no pun. And then you guys. You're going to start feeding the youtube channel on a little bit more of a regular basis. Maybe we'll start to ramp it up figure out the much more so than every nine years. Yes i gotta figure out. You know the the right frequency of put these videos out. But i think will probably put one out once a week once every two weeks. It's gotta be great content. Obviously it's gobert arouse driven so A lot of burning rubber lot offer odeon t. r. x. mostly dodged centered vehicle stuff. But you know with overs garage. Finally being erected out in the backyard. hopefully we'll have it completed by the end of the year in the that'll be a big launch also in conjunction with earth. Well that'll be exciting. To see the able to kind of follow along and see. I know you said dodge centric. That's the sponsor and stuff here but the first video is the law man video so hell at least out the gate. It's it's ford baby know. Everybody knows that. I have an affinity for the dogs brand one hundred percent. But it doesn't doesn't. I don't have a close minded collection by any stretch imagination and you know and a lot of other people know that the pinnacle mike license is four and it just so happens to be the law me. So we i. It'd been two and a half years since. I've seen my car five years since it started. Marcus one have marcus angel. Did one hell of a job restore thing. I mean we went to links. That i never would have imagined but after two and a half years in the cars absolutely gorgeous. Got a big event. We're gonna go to in november. I'll talk more about it here soon but yeah amanda it was. It was just an epic day. It was ironic that we were launching the goldbergs garage channel at the same time. But you know first and foremost. That's that's the card needs to be on the channel so dodge ford. It doesn't really matter. It's all good stuff. You still got the porsche over there to get that thing wrapped up and we're on the air conditioner. Right now. should be done here next week. Well good you need the air conditioning. Yes air conditioning is not worth anything. Anything out air. She's not even worth it. When i was at pair. Jackson vegas one hundred and eighteen degrees. I saw people riding with the windows down. I was like if you're at work. I don't know. Maybe that helps. But i don't i just don't get the hanging out with the windows down even at night. It's one hundred and ten degrees. I'm like guys roll windows. Put the air on like get yourself comfortable miserable. Okay so the other thing. I just want to mention real quick is cars. We've been driving. I've been spending a few days in the audi r s seven. Now i drove the wagon the rs sex avant and i drove the The excuse me the suv. The r s q eight all of these things crazy performance right like they've all got. I don't know five hundred ninety. One horsepower twin turbos the interiors similar layout similar touchscreen similar. Whatever right so they've all got their rs button and they're all fastest. Hell i think. The r seven is zero. Sixty three seconds. I think the wagon was like three point one seconds. I think the suv was about the same thing. So it is interesting that you you can. You basically can walk into the showroom at an audi and go. I want the fastest thing you have. And they go sure. Do you want it in the fourtou hatch the wagon where he wanted the su me you you pick what you want Gorgeous cars as we walked up. I was taking some photos. Chris saw the seven out front. The whites the black interior. It's got all the stitching and and and all the good features in it has the heated and cooled seats. Little dog jumps into the front seat and i was going to my warehouse and back to the matt cave and a little dog sits there and looks at me like wants me to turn the cooled seats on. Its underneath underneath this little belly. He knows that he's like the seats. Not doing anything. and it's hot. It does like all right. Let me hit the bugs. I hit the button. As you see. His face is is go go rollback. It's like it's the best thing ever so apparently cooled seats for dogs are the new feature who knew it was for dogs more than it was for people so the thing is is incredible. The the rs seven compared to the previous version. I think this one is a little faster but a little heavier. And i think that's just how they dialed in the. You know the computer and how they baby. So it's basically all in the programming. I don't even think it's a gearing issue as much as it is on the programming because the previous rs seven like performance pack or whatever it was called actually had a little bit more horsepower and the mid range. Power was a little better so that you know that fifty to seventy mile. An hour jaunt was about a half a second. Maybe point four seconds faster than this one but this one just feels a little faster overall from from the line and i don't know what that translates to like eleven something quarter miles. It's fast but it's incredibly.

"I'm sure there's a lot of details that you over landers and rock crawlers will will know more than than i will but the bronco has an independent front suspension and the independent front suspension does get rid of a lot of what the jeep guys are saying. The death wobble that shakiness at high speeds on the freeway the ride comfort and the bronco overall. I think is significantly better. That's all the feedback is is coming in with his saying it. It's it's comfortable smooth ride. It's easy to handle and one of the interesting features that i saw an edmonds video. Was they the car all twisted up in the rocks to show the articulation and they were able to disconnect the front sway bar in increase articulation in the middle of it being all twisted up whereas the jeep needs to be on flat. Ground for you to disconnect the sway bar stuff. And so you'd have to do it ahead of time where they literally had the bronco you know up on the rock showing what it was doing and you see the tire way up in the air. They hit disconnect and a drop down and it got you some traction and showed more articulation so that was kind of a neat feature as well. I'm not saying it is wildly better than the jeep. The you guys. That use the jeep. You'd have to drive the bronco to really kind of find out to see what what it is that you like. Better now jeep. Our friends at dodge achieve. And everyone had staunch us we love. I always love this competitiveness between them. We talked about it before. There's raptor trx. And there's a little gimmick under the hood of the trx the raptor the t. rex eating the rafter. and in the past it's always been somebody releases. Hey here's the new duly you know super duty whatever and it goes thirteen thousand pounds and then twelve minutes later. Dodgers like we recalculated we tell thirteen thousand one hundred pounds. There's always a one-upmanship going on so when the embargo lifted on all of the all of the bronco stuff that's the same day that jeep released their their whatever. Extreme recon package for the wrangler that included the thirty five inch tires because all the chart that that ford release was like. Here's the ground clearance for the for the for the bronco and the bronco badlands on the thirty five or whichever term is on the thirty five is here. And here's the jeep and we're got more ground clearance than than gps like. Yeah yeah but we just released seconds ago released the regular extreme recon and it's like it's yeah it's it's basically it's basically that so i don't think it really makes a difference because you guys do a lot of the big off roading and stuff. You're going to do what you want. Thirty five thirty seven. You can figure out what fits you you're gonna customize it but but but again it's cool to see the manufacturers dueling out and i were the beneficiary that's what i'm saying. I kind of liked the idea that that now you can just go to your jeep dealer. Go i wanted with thirty five. I want the extreme recon. And i wanna make payments on it. And i want a full warranty and i just want to just take it right and so that's easy part so i thought that was kind of fun to see that but the bronco looks cool and the more videos i saw on the more photos i saw. I'm still kind of torn between two door and four door to door looks bad ass but then you start to realize the four doors pretty cool as well and four rooms larger merger. There's more yeah more story longer. Wheelbase probably a little bit smoother. Ride it def. It's more stable. It's got a little more storage and it. So the one gauge is getting four doors. One hundred percents know. It's interesting because we start to think of as we get older. We want to get a four door so he can bring know family and friends. And i keep thinking. Yeah but i drove a mustang in high school and all of my friends had to bring their own car because we all wanted to go places. Where either james in the backseat. So who needs a backseat more than young. You know high schooler or whatever that's playing a bunch of team sports and wants to hang out with their friends and and believe me. There's nothing more important than that specially after the last year and a half a pandemic where people weren't even allowed to go see each other gauge had spent a year with you and wanda nobody else animals in lots and lots of animals. Lots of animals for sure. So i just kind of started thinking you know. Maybe the four door is kind of the way to go. I didn't look at all the trim levels to see if everything was available in two and four door. i believe it is but still is going to be. What about little later on. Maybe next year with the wart hog version sort of the bronco raptor that. They're gonna call war among. I've only seen the spy photos as a two door. So i don't know also. There are spy photos that came out of a bronco like overlander package. They were testing it with a winch and a pop up tent and all kinds of stuff. Which i think is fantastic because i think the manufacturers should test vehicles with all of that stuff bolted onto it of course. The markets now their reasoning is. Hey we want to be able to offer that stuff as accessories from the dealer but if we do we should be able to test that stuff as a manufacturer as well and so. I kind of liked the idea of that. If you guys saw the videos of the the jeep the three ninety two jeep the eight jeep and i think it was sean home in from the truck truck trend magazine. He does the truck show podcast. Good friend sweet guy really into this stuff and he was trying to do for the video. Who's going gonna do. Donuts in the sand in the three ninety two and that thing is immediately between the big tires and the amount of power he got it up onto wheels to hear people go at it. Came back down onto four wheels.

Rhythms of Sacred Protest - Koach Baruch Frazier
"Wanna talk about somebody coming to to do what you're doing which is to be in rabbinical school after a career in another field. I'm just curious about that because up until relatively recently being a rabbi was like something that people did more or less out of college and as somebody who's now on the old side. I kind of feel like i actually have learned a lot in the last thirty years and if i were to become a rabbi which i've got rid would never be but if i if i did today audi much better at it than i would have been thirty years ago and so i'm wondering just could you talk a little bit about how you made that decision to become a rabbi. After having done something else for a long time. And how has that influenced the way that you experience being a rabbinical student. One of the things that was on my mind. When i decided that i wanted to go to rabbinical school was as a leader Leader in community already in saint louis missouri. Which is where most recently from people were already assigning the title. Rabbi to me. It felt very strange. A i that was one thing that propelled into rabbinical school. The other thing is that. I spent a lot of time as an audiologist and i was starting to notice that some of the people who were coming to me weren't necessarily coming to me for their physical. Let's say a problems or their physical situations that they were actually coming to me. And i was more so as chaplain than i. Was there. audiologist in as that started to shift. I say you know what. I think i should go to school. So that I've gone to school for a audiology. And i felt of my career was great and i also knew that there was foundational learning. That made that career great along with the experience in so i decided that i needed to go to rabbinical school to get some foundational learning so that those moments in time when i'm spending with people as their rabbi that the foundation is there
HEADLINE CAPITALIZATION NTSB Releases Preliminary Report on Fatal Tesla Crash Capitalize Words With Four or More Letters (Associated Press style) Capitalize Words with Five or More Letters (APA Style) Do Not Capitalize Words Based on Length (Chicago Manual of Style) Capitalize Major Words and Those With Four or More Letters (MLA Style) You are likely here because you need a headline checker to make sure your title and headlines are properly written. That's exactly what Headline Capitalization does. It's a free tool to make sure what you capitalize online for publications like blogs and news articles, or for academic papers, is correct. This headline checker should help you to correctly format all your titles in the future. It's important to accurately capitalize titles and headlines for articles and papers. Headline Capitalization is a free headline checker that correctly capitalizes titles for all your writing. Article Title and Headline Capitalization Rules When it comes to creating headlines and titles for articles, it can get confusing what words to capitalize and what words should remain lower case. There are several styles of title and headline capitalization which different publications may use. For the most part, there are general rules that all publications follow with a few minor deviations between them. For those who write, it's important to understand these rules about which words to capitalize when creating headlines and titles. Major Headline Capitalization Styles There are four major title capitalization styles. These are: AP Style APA Style Chicago Style MLA Style There is no single authoritative style guide when it comes to capitalizing headlines and titles, although some are used for certain types of writing. For example, the Associated Press Stylebook (AP Style) is often used by news organizations, the Chicago Manual of Style (Chicago Style) is more comprehensive for in-depth writing, and the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (MLA style) is used for academic papers. While this is where the different styles are usually used, it's not mandatory to use a particular style for a particular type of writing. If you are unsure of which style to use, the best method is to seek out which style the course, editor, or teacher prefers so that you know, and then use that specific style. If you're in a certain field, you should learn the style that's most prominent in your field. For example, the AP Style for those in journalism, and the MLA style if you're in academics. In all cases, it's best to ask for each project to make sure since each style has its own rules. General Headline Style Rule: Title Case How to write headlines and titles is usually referred to as "headline style" or "title case." As mentioned, all styles are not the same, but there are a few general rules they all follow. These are: Capitalize the first word in the title Capitalize the last word in the title Capitalize the important words in the title The first two points are clear cut and easy to follow. The next question is, what are considered "important" words in a headline? In most cases, they include the following words: Adjectives (beautiful, large, hopeful) Adverbs (forcefully, silently, hurriedly) Nouns (computer, table, manuscript) Pronouns (they, she, he) Subordinating conjunctions (as, so, that) Verbs (write, type, create) Words in Headlines That Aren't Capitalized The above words are the ones generally capitalized, so what words are usually written in lowercase when creating headlines and titles? These tend to be shorter words (under five letters long). The following types of words are generally not capitalized: Articles (a, an, the) Coordinating Conjunctions (and, but, for) Short (less than 5 letters) Prepositions (at, by, from) Alternative Headline Capitalization: Sentence Case One style of headline and title capitalization which doesn't follow the rules is Sentence Case style. This is where editors decide to write titles as if they were a typical sentence. In this case, the first word of the headline would be capitalized while the rest of the title would be in lower case, except for proper nouns. Below are a few examples of Sentence Case style headlines: How to properly write article titles A review of a hike at Grand Canyon national park The best value meal when eating at Chipotle Referencing Titles of Publications No matter what style of headline capitalization you decide to use in your writing, if you ever reference the title of a book, article, or journal, you should write the title of it as it has been written, even if it happens to be a different style than you're using for your writing. You should not change them to fit your style, and they should always be written as they appear in the publication. Copyright © Headline Capitalization 2021. All rights reserved.

The Impact of Australian High Performance Computing in the Coming decade
"Joining us in the podcast. Today we have professor shawn smith that director of national computational infrastructure and see i and he's also a professor or computation of nanno matera science and technology at australian national university. Professor smith is also a fellow of the royal australian chemical institute a fellow american is association for the advancement of science a fellow of the institute of chemical engineers and he will be sharing with us the highlights of high performance computing at nci. Thank you professor for joining us in the podcast. Today i thought we kick off by taking a look at the evolution and development in australia. Research backed by high performance computing and data infrastructure which plays a pivotal role in national research. But also have wide ranging economic and social impacts. I'm so for example as you pointed out in your presentation at supercomputing asia Looking at the year two thousand twenty the events challenging for many with the pandemic but particularly so for australia with the bushfire which i thought i very salient. Examples of where policymakers and help provide as neat fayza reliable information to get a sense of what is yet to come to better manage the situation but beyond these examples is also cancer research. Physics et cetera. So for our listeners. Can you tell us more about you know audi australia. Research are backed. By high performance. Computing infrastructure have evolved over the decades. You certainly are one constructive way to approach that question. Jain may be. If if i summarize the way in which australia to tijuana one phones compute facilities have evolved over the past decade which gives a flavor of how that the sick to hebron australia has developed in the major demise signs that have been really key in driving it forwards so we have to tier one facilities in australia One is the australian at the australian national university campus. Here in canberra the other one is the posey supercomputing center in person west australia. So both of these centers were set up in their initial in the current model as it were nearly a decade ago and when nci was stood up in its current form. The australian national university has long long history of computing. But the carrots. Nci was put in place around about twenty eleven two thousand twelve and we build a new data center on campus and put in the previous supercomputing facility which was called ryan now when i was set up with financial input from the federal government. They then we're really looking for a degree of leverage of their investment And so the federal contributions to were helped to facilitate the standing up of the big facility and the big shane And the new data center per se and they contribute a certain amount of our national expenses. But i asked us dan to negotiate the larger part of operating expenses. With am i just stike holders. And in the case of nci. This was done by substantial collaboration with four major organizations. I was the australian national university. Which is our organizational host. It was the csi. Giovanni australia and the bureau of meteorology so the one university into three big government agencies collaborated in a way that allowed to build out and develop and the common thread across those three. Big agencies was really climate weather simulation and geospatial science earth sciences and so for example the the great majority of large-scale climate modeling research is done at nci. And it's done. In collaboration between the bureau of meteorology the csi and the university sector which has some substantial activity also in that mind so nci became if you will the collaborative sandpit that these organizations could actually work together on very large common data sets in degenerate very large data. It's through the simulation work and the the other component of that was with geoscience australia. They are the secretaries for the international agreements which bring labs scout satellite imaging data four alpine out of the globe down to australia and nci was tasked to work with Jason social strata. To figure out how to host is enormous data sets and make them there in available findable so forth and accessible and utilize -able
How Do Belly Buttons Work?
"Do you think the reason that you have in any or an outy. Bellybutton has something to do with the way that your milk cord was cut and tied when you were born. Come on be honest. The persistence of the any. Audi meth is exhibit a. But we don't know jack about our belly buttons your belly. Button is indeed the leftover remnant of what was once the umbilical cord The rope light connection between you and your birth parent which supplied all of your nutrients and oxygen when you were in the womb. When you were born someone helping with the birth likely cut. The bulk corridor a couple of inches. Away from your belly and clamped off the remaining section. There's no tying involved once it's clamped the small section of umbilical cord dries up and falls off in about a week. A what's left is the umbilical commonly known as the belly button and the shape and size of the bellybutton depends entirely on the way to your skin. Heels after the cord falls off. If you have an audi it's likely due to a mild umbilical hernia or slide infection at the site. Roughly ninety percent of people have any and it's a jungle in there according to eat delightfully odd scientific initiative called the belly button diversity project belly. Buttons are home to a startling diversity of bacteria. The project started back in twenty eleven at north carolina state university when a team of young researchers got the idea to explore the microbiome of the belly. Button a with the bacteria colony is the naval be different from those found on the rest of the body. Using our na sequencing the researchers identified two thousand three hundred and sixty eight different species of bacteria living in the navels of sixty volunteers for reference.

Gt three touring the one we keep. Sam drive the fuck out the two three r s. I can't wait to come up with that. If they even they may not even come out with it. I don't know if shit goes the way we're thinking we may have one of those bitches around That that'll be jackson. Are you on cleaning cars. These people listen supercars great. Listen linda my piece of shit car. The q. tip. Yeah hey man. Anybody i know some crazy people. One of the thing was q tip and you charge the same same same amount per hour to clean cars as you do it. No less probably much per hour. I don't know you get back. Some rates go back to i. Six s i. I don't think we've gonna fordham even if we're where we are for editing our i'm curious The saying the the rate is like the glock. Nineteen of supercars is hyper and of course. There's stuff that drives better. I get that but that's not nothing. That's a big fucking title lakes. I'm curious for so for me. Not knowing having never driven supercar say we go out to a track. Would you tell me first car. I one ever hop in an ra start. Absolute depends on the track. I mean to me it depends on what what your goals are to you like the one thing i will say in the in the pro list of putting you in a in an ira. I is good. It's like white rice with the glycemic index. Okay like like. It's the one point zero gold standard of this is what you can compare everything else to. It's it's it drives as good or better or worse i it's kind of a universal metric benchmark. Yeah yeah for quote so in in that way. I think it makes sense to no different than like a your first gun. Yod do a glock nineteen. Not you know something that sox by like. Don't do a fucking baretta you know. Now there's other trains of thoughts that say no shoot a bradtha first or drive a fucking mustang or whatever I so that you can appreciate you know the other things in there and there's valid points to that too so i don't know that there's really a right or wrong answer but the beauty would be to be. I'm in the market for this. How my banker got may set up. I'm in the market. And i wanna lamborghini. He's ago dr one. You're going vegas go rent one mighty mass transit per for i couldn't fucking afford at the time. Yeah fell in love with the car. And i ended up with a fucking mclaren. I got the next best thing. Next was the are eight But on it if we went to a race track. That's a different type of environment to me very much. So i don't think it gives you the daily feeling doesn't into your point. I could not agree more. Like the raid is is the most daily drivable supercar similarly to a nine eleven turbo turbo-gas. But i thank you do get a little bit more of a special experience with the with the right. Then you do a nine eleven because it does look a little more like a supercar a lot more but in our eight compared to a mclaren ferrari a fucking you know any of the other big boys. It doesn't have that specialist. And i think that you know for me. That's kinda the thing is..

"But it's got a dole clutch in it. That knows when you're shifting so it's so fast it knows when you're shifting shifting before you as a human could push your foot down and pull the gear. So what. I mean by his car with door. Clutch feels like a regular car. Ceos old five point oh mustang or even a new one for that matter and you're driving a standard fuck. You could doing a four banger right now. You're in third year doing thirty miles an hour. Oh fuck a stop. Let me throw that bitch. I and let off the clutch on accident in that motherfucker nosedives. Yeah is trying to break in catch up. And that's the one thing i would say. You know that you get a specially stock and even with a super charger is that it still drives the way that it's supposed to it alters. The the personality in terms of how. The car drives noticeably And i will say even compared to ferrari the ferrari era dual clutch n. And the nine eleven. Pdk that i actually have a spirit to feel like you know. I'm comfortable in stating my opinion on it is that the stock are eight. Transmission when when you're manually shifting is the fastest instance smoothest of any car i've ever driven. I know every fucking big car reviewer blogger out. There would disagree with the to me it actually nick. V-f wouldn't hot to me. It's it's the fastest smoothest. I think for for me that the it feels so it is so fucking smooth. It makes it feel faster. Maybe maybe what it is but it's the most buttery smooth like refined shifting experience of any car. I've ever driven when that motherfucker is stock. It's it's it's unbelievable and that's why audi is out in lamborghinis lamborghini. It's actually a tune which i learned this from nicot. Vf we're talking about it. And i was like wire. The are eight quicker than the hurricanes and he said a driver he said in that transmission. The hurricanes have a program to feel stronger. And it's all in the shift. It's all of the computer turning. Yeah and an audi is for Gentleman it's a gentleman supercar thank you. Yeah yeah feel. You're a scholar and a gentleman but it's made to be smooth. Take the wife out. She don't wanna be jerked the fuck around. You want her to jerk you off. And i'll be jerked around. So that's the difference. The outy is. You're more confident of its. Oh fuck i'm fixing be jerked back. Nuff you can just click the fucking years. That's buttery fucking. Yeah and that's why nick. Vf prefers the ra. Over the hurricane. I will say that per for monty does feel different than a stocker con. We need to go draft. Some of those fuckers. Yeah i think speed vegas has him if not we can go round from houston at a houston acosta over there at royalty. And he'll dry. Fuck how shit. Yeah that's where. I draw showdown.

They invested their shit turned it into other shit made their ship where they have all their managing other talent making twenty percent of their friends who they got them started youtube and to me. It's just like the music industry is that if they if they play it right and realize that their their talent wave has a shelf life and they take what they make instead of buying fucking lamb bows and and whatever mansions and shit is that they put back into business and investment. Whatever you know to me. It's no different than lottery. Winners that win. One hundred and twenty million dollars in three years later fucking broke. You know to me being being wealthy as more of a state of mind than it is anything else If you if you don't manage your money properly and You know don't don't think of it from a long game standpoint like you're always going to be living fucking paycheck to paycheck and just beyond your means. It just always gonna be that way right. But and i mean that's that's what i you said all aspects of if what we have kicks off gets going. We're going to invest in other shit pro pro athletes. Same thing you see it like the ones that thirty years later are fucking rolling. In money. Took the money they made when they were making it at at their peak Of whatever their talent is that that again has a shelf which you know. Popularity generally does with the exception of A-list actors that you know the time cruises the fucking deniro's whatever that last decades and in our always popular but most athletes entertainers Musicians fucking whatever like. They've got that few years or maybe upwards of a decade where they're really famous really popular very wealthy and they. They are smart about their money during that time. And and no where to put some of it mean you you got to enjoy your life and spend some of it to takoff or what's the point but to me that's what separates people that that make it in the long run versus those that don't as their mentality about.

"It's the audi look it definitely represents the audi brand but many bits of it are shed because at the same company and so you know that would make sense in fact even the little knobby that you used to do. The steering wheel upi down any outy. That's the same. But there are many of the things that i mean. You'd never see underneath the steering wheel you have to feel for. You can't even see the thing unless should be on your hands and knees and who cares who cares if the way that you move the steering wheel up and down in and out is the same on a porsche and audi some people bothered by that. I'm certainly not to compare it. With other audi's this is quicker than the are six and the irs seven. He's got forty six horsepower. More when the press were allowed to test drive the car before release by the white those that did it with those little speed trump fund. Dongo things that you put on the dashboard of the draghi's they timed at two point. Eight eight seconds note to sixty two and that's interesting again. That's a very german thing very porsche thing. Underplaying the car. Underplaying the specs when they give these audi. Give these specs by the way. These will always be in terms of the range. They'll be on the low end so that will be on the worst whale so if it comes twenty you can spec it with twenty one inch non era wheels. They'll give you that they'll put on the worst wheels like the biggest wheels the least error the namic and they'll do the testing in a in a way that doesn't exaggerate the range to leave you to leave. You disappointed like the way porsche have always done even with combustion cars and so. It's the same with tycoon. They give you the absolute worst case scenario. Hopefully you are surprised and delighted. Of course the the people that like to argue on twitter the stats nerds will take those numbers as gospel because they know nothing about generally i mean anything that talking about how the ones bicker on twitter just spoiling for an argument and then normally from one particular car brand because they are the disciples however if we want to look at the you're on. Gt cost it's about eighty seven thousand pounds. The gt will cost ninety nine thousand eight hundred euros in germany. So i've done that calculation to the uk. That's a uk price that i've got from audi by the way it's about three thousand pounds more than the ticon four s and it's seven thousand pounds more than the model s. Long range okay. Let's talk about the rs. Model is available from the first day on sale as well. The model costs from one hundred and twenty thousand pounds so you are in rarefied air up them.

But it's not we are talking about the audi rs each on gt which doesn't make sense to my brain it's the hr gt and the gtri s- shouldn't they be that are at the beginning of the night. It's the small things that confuse me. It's the first ever electric audi rs car. So what are the specs. Well not one hundred k's that's not sixty two oars release put it nor sixty two point one miles an hour because they're german so they wouldn't say to sixty two if it was actually not to sixty two point one love it. That takes four point one seconds in the base spec car and three point. Three seconds in the irs gt has four hundred seventy six horsepower to boost mode. So if you floor it it'll give you a short amount of boost of five hundred and thirty horsepower. And as for the s with that comes basic with six hundred horsepower which is crazy and in boost mode. If you do need to floor it either do track run or overtaking maneuver will give you six hundred and forty six horsepower..
