    Was not expecting the D Max to beat Hilux on the drag race until i recalled that it was the 3.0 model. I would luv if it was the 19 model.

    The Triton looked very composed in the 2nd challenge. Almost car like movement.

    On the 3rd challenge, Bobby method of approach is almost correct. Going too slow will cause the car to shake from left to right, front to back...depending on the surface.

    Agreed. Why not the 1.9 DMax? The 3L is irrelevant given high road tax and old tech.

    I like the good mix of reviewers, each with a different character. I think Tom and Bobby should do more reviews together.

    Bobby caters to the average Joe, he covers stuff like cup holders and storage compartments, which is very important for consumers.

    Tom covers the handling and power of the car. Which is for the drivers. Tom ain’t got time for cup holders.
