    Because you can, if you wish...your car your rules.
    As for the sound track, I like the TV8 burble, and having an RV8 I also like their growl, however, apart from at idle and up to 30mph you can hardly hear the sound track because of the wind and road noise, and after 45 mph there is no chance. Buying the car for the sound it makes is bittersweet once you get moving.

      You need to drive through more long tunnels

      "Because you can, if you wish...your car your rules." pretty much what I said , but a lot more succinct

        there’s always more to learn though.... like how E.V.s will cope with snowy motorway hold ups etc etc.
        was expecting to hear of fisticuffs at the charging stations....didn’t have to wait long.
        I.C. Has been a flawed solution for 130 years.... E.V. won’t come close to that.
        Why does a Tesla take 8 hours to service? I suspect I know, but I don’t have the facts about that....it’s a bit of a secret.
        No need for any answers...I don’t need or want to know.

        E.V. are as flawed as renewable energy experiments such as wind turbines.

        BTW made 5000 parts to keep your stags going today

          You sound like you have lots of interesting knowledge and stories.. and I mean that genuinely and not sarcastically. Have you thought of doing a write up for the magazine outlining your experiences. I for one would love to hear about them. Maybe you have already, but my magazines only go back 1 year...

            Here is an electric engine which was recently published in a German newspaper:

              Was privileged to work on the Rover 75 programme in the 1990’s. (Engine design) A video has just been published by John Clancy about that.
              since then I worked with Luk ( clutch & driveline / transmission) Antonov ( auto transmission) & Polaris off road & Indian motorcycle (power train)
              Have assisted Soctfl in producing a number of items.
              Door handle chromes & currently trying to get the heater air intake grills re-made.
              Watching the E.V. Developments with cynical interest. They seem to have become adopted as a cult like solution but so far cannot demonstrate that there are a solution at all we might run out of fossil fuels, we might run out of the elements required to make E.V. Extracting both are very harmful to the environment. Renewables do still require massive amounts of carbon based processes & material & questionable public funding & still have very low output.
              Back to stags:-
              years ago I researched the parts required to repair lower column bush repair & these parts are now readily available but they weren’t before.
              made the auto selector legend foils ...available to Print & make... or I can post out if needed (FOC)

              Oh, once dabbled with a 32v stag engine project!
              A couple of other projects in the wings for stags....
              washer pump impellors, b post finishers & the chrome plate behind the b post together with an infill for the void.
              have made my own investigations into stag water pump skew gear failures having suffered that 3times.
              find it tricky to convince those who blame the failure on bad design. ( it has worked for many 000’s miles in many cars)
              torque to turn is an important part of a rebuilt pump which gets overlooked. Sadly people buy & trust what’s available to fit today & it isn’t that simple.
              fell for stags when I was 6 years old had one or two since 1988.
              thats about it.

                Fascinating stuff, it would be fantastic if you could take some time to explain to us all (via a magazine article) your experiences... so many interesting things.... I would definitely like to understand the process behind the SOCTFL projects too. Thanks for your help too.
