    I don't know if it was by accident, but I noticed at 29:17 your right front wheel is not well enough fastened. Maybe that was just for testing, but if not now you know.

    I need to complain too: Did he sell the engine he pulled from the Mini? Because if he did, he is aiding another Mini in not going to the scrapper with a broken engine! That way there is no environmental benefit of converting one to electric.

    First of all: I really love your content so don't instantly start bashing me too. However, I do see where that guy is coming from. The only times Leenda appears in shot, she is moaning about something, acting uninterested, posing for pictures or just flexing her ass. If she was engaging, funny or appeared truly interested, of course she would be a very cool person to join the videos. But I just don't get what she is adding or what the actual purpose is of her being in the video. Just my two cents. But again, your actual content is great as ever and I hope y'all are doing well

    Hard to swallow pills: 1. if the title of the video matches the content of said video, it's not clickbait 2. By sending Rich an email claiming his videos to be clickbait. It only proves to him and now all of us, that you are so uncomfortable with the idea of having an attractive women on your screen. You are in a way ashamed of the fact that you may find her attractive, a perfectly normal human function. Either because you believe that by being in a relationship you cannot look at someone who may be attractive, or because you never learned to normalize the female form, so you literally can't trust yourself to sit and watch a video about cars without getting all hot and bothered when a girl comes into frame. Let me be the one to tell you this, it's a girl, she's fine af, take a gander, move on. If you can't do that, then grow up. Cause there's some beautiful people out there, and if you can't handle Leenda in a video about electric swapping a mini cooper, your not going to be able to go to the beach in Italy anytime soon. Just saying 3. She's a model, you don't have to watch this channel to see Leenda. We know that and so does she, she doesn't have to do these videos. So it's only fair to assume that she likes doing them. If she didn't she could just not do them. But you don't see that, all you see is how she's a girl and she's in the thumbnail and that makes it clickbait. And while a lot of ALthe channels will have a female in a video just so she can be in a thumbnail (which I personally don't like either) Look at Leenda's roll in these videos, she actually does things. She's not just there in the background only to make an appearance for a thumbnail worthy frame. You would know that if you paid attention to the video instead of being hung up on the fact that she's attractive and doesn't mind showing it off, and how much of a problem that is for you. It's not a problem for most of us, and it's not because we're creeps. It's because we're adults.

    Thats good u no fine buuut u cood also just cut the general shape of the plate determine the general center of the plate n cut out a small hole for the shaft pop the cardboard in place of the drill holes and pop the screw n nut assembly back on tru the cardboard then mark it--this way allows any play in the motor its old n prolly has slight wobble but u can offset this with slightly offset bolt holes

    Epic build and very clean. BUT in reality what the cooper lacks in reliability it makes up for in handling and maneuverability. My 2006 r53 has 80K and it still rocks because i do all the maintenance religiously and proactively prepare for parts replacement ..... it will never be a 300000 mile Honda accord, but for a 1.6 ltr SC motor its faster than most at 0-60 in 6.9sec. Maybe when it dies ill consider copying your build if it will work with the steptronic 6sp automatic.... its by far one of the funnest cars to drive. There's a reason they are so popular in Rally and autocross and turning into track cars...... EVERY CAR breaks down by the way and they all have their own engineering flaws and trade offs...... BUT YOUR BUILD IS TOP NOTCH

    just do what you want to do. If they don't like it oh well, do what makes you happy. If people don't like to stop watching, I've done it with some people I watched but have I not ever criticize that channel or spread illness towards the channel. I just simply moved on, it's their channel and business. You have the power to simply just don't watch it or unsubscribe simply as that. No need to say hateful words which makes no sense. You should always wish for someone's success, if you feel like that it's not your preference anymore then move on, there is no need to cause chaos because of a creator's direction.
