    The Ioniq 5 N Is a Great Liar; 3 Dream Engine Swaps

    The Ioniq 5 N Is a Great Liar; 3 Dream Engine Swaps

    The Hyundai Ioniq 5 N blew Matt's mind for so many reasons you won't believe. Plus, what engines would we swap into which car if we had all the money and talent? That's what we're talking about today. Dream builds. Plus, Patreon questions about:

    Is it a good idea to finance an R34 GTR?
    When it is (and isn't) time to get out of a Ford and into a German car.
    WRX TR vs GR Corolla
    Our thoughts on the Mustang GTD's trunk.
    Why the 997 is the sweet spot for Porsche 911s.
    Do we care about celebrity car ownership?
    Should I buy a low-mile Forester in a boring color or a high-mileage one in an exciting color?
    Dupont Registry's purchase of Petrolicious
    EV depreciation

    Ali Javidan (FAT ICE Racing; How Dampers Work; Headlight Tech)

    Matt calls in from the Bernardus hotel with our friend and the founder and CEO of Range Energy, Ali Javidan. Ali is an engineer and high-caliber driver, who shares with us his take on why the GT3 RS is so stiff, why adjustable dampers matter as much as springs; his experience driving in Aspen at the FAT ICE Race; how to durability test a semi-truck trailer; why batteries need to be liquid-cooled; and when to ignore rock chips.

    Note: This show was recorded remotely with Matt and Ali calling into Zack at the studio. There were a lot of Wifi dropoffs and glitches but Zack did a bunch of hacking and stitching to remove those moments. As such, you might notice a few jumps and cuts. It was the best we could do.

Please don’t hate them

For those who don’t like this podcast because they have something against Tesla, I would suggest Past Gas or The Big Three and please don’t hate them. Not everybody likes something, I don’t like Tesla either but that’s not a reason to hate them. And I know they use Tesla as a example of something bad, but think about it, you have proballey done something similar too.
