Project Binky - Episode 24 - Austin Mini GT-Four - Turbocharged 4WD Mini

  • Published on May 12, 2019
  • In episode 24 of Project Binky we take a close look at the radiator pack and somehow squeeze a quart into a pint pot with a multitude of heat-exchangers. We also make a start on the ECU and engine wiring.

    If the grill frame is touching and rubbing the Aluminum radiator surface it can and will rub into and thru it. Cause Aluminum is incredibly soft. It is not friction resistant at all. The name of this episode should have been "getting Randy! For Radiators!"

    Was that supposed to be "Totally rad!" Then a cheeky "I'll see myself out for that bad pun." 😅

    Very reminiscent of Rage Against the Machine, the funk in this video.

    Looks like the CAC heat exchanger is in direct contact with the radiator. Are you not worried about heat saturation?

    Well lads I never thought I would say a piece of engineering would be Beautiful (impressive yes but beautiful) but you have made a scratch build into a Produced T.V. show. No really it's that good.

    I love all this but can't help thinking that the same performance could be obtained more simply with an electrically powered version. Next project?

    That radiator fan must be very powerful to pull air through those three radiators, especially at a stop (on a hot day)? ;-)

    BOM fan ALERT: If you enjoy these videos it is likely you will enjoy the excellent craftsmanship Vince is displaying in his videos when he makes a replica of an old school Indy car from scratch. He is young but oh, so skilled.

    Not sure if there is going to be anymore &A episode/s but just how many cut-off disc and flap disc has this project taken? I also remember in one much earlier episode you said you cut more metal off the car than you reinstalled; is there anyway this is actually true? Don't get me wrong I love the engineering (term used loosely) and a bracket for this, a bracket for that, etc. Keep up the good work. I'm very excited for the end result, come 2022 right?

    So I've been watching this series since the episode building the fender extensions and due to a recent back injury I thought I would finally watch the the series from the beginning....OMG this was started 5 years ago. Funny in the 1st episode you said you would bring the Mini to Goodwood track the following year...HAHAHA

    Did you know that if you made the videos shorter you could release more of them and more often and possibly even make more money out of them like everybody else does?

  • Bernhard Michael Fux

    Hmm when i think how long this build takes... Are you Guys aware, that the World will be running out of oils some day? Wouldn`t it be better to rethink the drive Train , and build an electrical one? I just thi9nk in this direction... lol...

  • Bernhard Michael Fux

    OMG! It gets sicker with every Episode... Unbelievable... This car is not unique, this thing will be an evolution! I wonder if it will be able to speak also ;-) !

    BOM: “Hello is that ABC insurance?”
    ABC: “Yes how can we help you?”
    BOM: “We would like to insure our Mini”
    ABC: “No problem Sir. Any modifications?”

    Watched all 24, and now I know - either Nik is a mad genius fabricator, or simply mad. I will never look at a bracket the same way again. I walk through Home Depot, look at all those puny brackets and actually LOL!

    I've just finished binge watching to the end of this episode.
    The Mrs now has no reason to say "Are you still watching them building that bloody mini?"
    I'll be able to sneak an episode in once in a while without her catching me. :)
    But seriously!!!!!! In Australia we would tell you to "Pull your BLOODY finger out" hahaha
    See you in a month or so. :)

    There are channels where people - who dont know much about metal work or engines - repair chassis and fix motors (supposedly). The only reason people watch is because they select cool cars (Lambos, Ferraris). You guys pick a Mini and people still love your clips more... because you guys are awesome!!!

    Just "binged" on this - wow I cannot believe I still enjoyed the 1000'th bracket montage :) - have to say, you two are genius's - clearly not finished yet but love attention the to detail - (keeping the 10/10 moniker till I see the paint) might get the moths out and go and order something, perhaps I can watch the next episode, in my BOM overall, draped over me in a Jason King styl'eee .... nice

    Love the build but I guess you guys are getting tired or you have outsouced the production. It's lost its humour.
