      What do you think to this system? What systems in the car would you like to hear about next? Drop a suggestion in the comments!

        @Kylan Ira Yup, I've been watching on flixzone for since december myself :D

      2. Kylan Ira

        pro trick : you can watch movies on flixzone. I've been using them for watching lots of of movies recently.

      3. One Bridge

        How the software works when I watch races the engineers have all the data and tell the driver to cool engine, tires, etc. How do they get all the real time data?

      4. Andrei Chichak

        I'd like to see how the steering rack + arms work. I think some of the cars have the steering arms inside of the suspension arms. It's very hard to find out how they are arranged.

      5. Vijay Shankar

        Front wing ( angle of attack control , sensors , spliiters )and steering (how tierods are actuating ) This kind of discussion at component level is actually good and new in youtube. Most videos explain the overall functioning but they don't cover component intricacies. nice work mate

    2. x808drifter

      If I read that correctly. Spring rate for a single spring is 156N/mm or 890lb/in or 16kg/mm spring.

    3. Chris Daly

      I will watch every video like this one. I would like them longer, between 15 and 30 minutes. No detail is to small.

      Just so you know, Kevins are great blokes ;)

    6. gav

      Daaaad, could I come to the shop and make some videos ? Looks over the top of his glasses, why would you want to do that But daaaaad it will be so cool, I will get soooooooo many views Alright Alright

      Wow the coffee looks like mud. Must be pretty strong coffee 🙂👍 turkish coffee is super strong and looks like mud too 🙂

    10. Pedro Delgado

      This looks insane would have no idea how to work this lmao

    11. Michal

      old dirty coffe mug are poisonus to us

    12. Riccardo Zanfi

      great video

    13. Prosport Auto

      Increasing the rake angle doesn't increase the weight on the front tyres statically. There are other elements at play which adding rake changes. You can see this in iRacing if you change the front or rear ride height, the front-to-rear weight split remains the same. In a high functioning aero based car, changing rake will probably affect the downforce of the car more than anything else.

    14. A Dub

      No wonder you raced f1

    15. Mr G

      Totally awesome video! Thank you 👍 looking forward to more videos

    16. NeonDrive

      " my father's workshop where he has a number of formula 1 cars" If only we all were so lucky

      1. NeonDrive

        @yLLiDan Godspell depends on the year i suppose. I'd wager that for a working one 10mil minimum. But i have no honest idea.

      2. yLLiDan Godspell

        How much does it cost to have one?

      I absolutely love this channel. it gets right into the interesting stuff and keeps it short and sweet. no BS. keep up the good work!

    20. wizurd77

      Brilliant videos on the f1 car components. Very interesting.

    21. Jason Wills

      Howdotheykeepthe wheels attaché after acrashteathered in now butconectedtowhat?

    22. Alex Alfons

      can't they 3d print that hollow part?

    23. AutomotiveCNC

      Wise fathers buy F1 cars so that their son will visit them more often. :)

    24. Darin R

      Changing the rake does alot more than that. Without adjusting the wings it changes the AOA of the wing increasing downforce and drag from both wings by adding nose down rake. Unless the wings are re adjusted to compensate for that effect

    25. Darin R

      Some of those parts look like they are built at the same shops/type of shops that boeingg aircraft are built. I was a machinist for them. So the finish and how some of the part look visually brings back some memories

    26. Brian Sellers

      Such cool footage - it's unreal how much technology and knowhow goes into these cars. And the people who create them are just... wow.

    27. Cliff Lee

      With 3D printing being able to be used with metals I'm thinking it may add another technological advancement for race car design. Not like the weights of parts are already outrageously light.

    28. Sam Shroom

      My dad has fishing tackle and a lawn mower...

    29. Candra Wijaya

    30. Will Lesslie

      Good brummy accent

    31. Adam Bumgardner

      Yeah I had something similar in my acura when I changed dampers and springs, one of the stops was rotten, so I just removed them and said "ahh, it'll never bottom ot anyway it doesn't matter ".. It very much mattered and I have to pull it back apart. The exhaust now has holes in it where it hits the highway so often

    32. TByrom

      SUGGESTIONS: -Rear and undercarriage diffuser -MGU-H -Cockpit-fuel cell-chassis physical connections, with associated commentary on Romain’s incident

    33. TByrom

      Fabulous, Scott! Super informative, and it’s splendid to virtually walk about an F1 garage! I look forward to more of the same

    34. A C

      One of the best videos on chanell!

    35. SlacKerZ1 zzz

      "my dad has a couple f1 cars" WHAT.

    36. Leo Silverman

      Absolutely love your dad what a freaking legend, crazy how light they can get those parts with modern ti alloys and carbon fiber!

    37. Tribe of the Iron Flame

    41. eric1138

      Great job! I love your channel. :)

    42. nYx

      Wish i could casually say “Im in my dads workshop where he has a couple of formula 1 cars” 😲

    43. Googl Reviews

      As much as I appreciated time and effort to relate this video, the father/son thing in a workshop, tearing things apart together, that is priceless. 👍🥂

    44. J Preston

      From watching your videos, I’m quickly learning why F1 is so expensive. I’m just imagining the engineering, material and manufacturing processes that go into these. It blows my mind.

    45. Drive4fun

      Not a f1 guy but your videos are super educational and interesting to watch. Thanks a lot 👍🚙

    46. Василий Шишкин

      It's just stupid how light these components are, feels like they found a breach in the universe's laws

    47. Justin POUPLIER

      Not even a third of the video talk about what we click for.

    48. Rob Manser

      These videos are great Scott. Thank you. 👍🏻

    52. repetitivemotion

      Amazing! I’ve always been intrigued by race car suspension. It’s the most fascinating aspect of the machine.

    53. formulafan

      Had a hard week and this was just what I needed after this day to make it a bit better . Formula video + listening to the music I like (Delta Parole, Metallica and other) make me feel the speed and excitement!

    54. Pete boy

      cool,just like my car suspension...nice vid...

    55. Watema 3

      I've seen this before release wtf

    56. Watema 3


    57. Eros Maia

      Great work !

    58. Louis Stanyer

      Hey, can you do a video suggesting the best sim racing wheels used to help get better only a suggestion you don’t have to

    59. Kalil Suyan

      your father from magician to F1 engineer. he seems to be the Newt Scamander when old.

    60. The Wolf

      was that the car of Alexander Wurz? :D

    61. Anuar Del Castillo

      Its pure beauty to learn with this intimacy those cars. THANKS FOR SHARING!!

    63. Dazzlers Channel

      I guess your pops is a fellow brummie?? Gread vid!!

    64. Michael Vadney

      Loved that! Thanks

    65. John Good

      An estimate of costs would be interesting here. I imagine they are well into the "truly shocking" range.

    66. ATD bdgit

      Absolutely fabulous video. When you are filming at your fathers workshop is my very favourite videos.


      "I'm just at my father's workshop where he has a number of F1 cars" you just said that so casually as if it's a normal thing for a father to have lol. It's so cool to see.

    68. Ariel Xaber

      Do more of these videos!

    69. Cory Yalowicki

      This is a fascinating topic. But is there an actually good video that explains the concept better?

    70. alberto robinson

      Sorry for the interruption sr, but how important is the engine phase correlation in turn of reducing the high frequency vibrations around of the engine and the torque adjustment in the differential

    71. maccmike8

      Tig welded not mig.

    72. hobbes

      arrows, circles and question marks in thumbnail pictures are incredibly lame and denote a feeling of low quality clickbait. They really don’t fit with the quality of your videos. i suggest dropping them. your topics are intriguing enough to entice new viewers and your presentation is strong enough to keep them watching.

    73. Raymond Barcik

      It’s great to see and hear the respect and the relationship you have with your father Bless you

    74. Oved Appr

      Take rc racer , the used to take titanium rod , but it could all be replaced with flash bainite for same strength but way cheaper

    75. Oved Appr

      Most of the material used could be replaced with flash bainite ! (Very inexpensive )and you could skip the carbon fiber aero part

    76. Oved Appr

      Want to save a lot of money and be as light as titanium and almost as strong ? Flash bainite process

    77. Danny Giusa

      Thanks for sharing these videos. This is the actual gold what makes F1 worth watching.

    78. american seoul

      Your father looks like Hugh Grant!

    79. LogiForce86

      Oh boy, I wish the Benetton got rebuild from scratch and we would get explained everything in detail like this. It really let's you appreciatie the eye for detail and accuracy even in the 90s when CAD development was still in its infancy. I want an encore to this... so interesting.

    80. Walter

      Would All Wheel Drive F1 be faster at hairpins and take them drifting like a rally car?

    81. Robert Rejek

      Humbly requesting more vids with your Dad. He's a wealth of knowledge and great at explaining this kind of stuff.

    82. Ritter_Cracker


    83. ZeroFu*ksGiven

      Subscribed just for more videos like this!

    84. Dream Diction

      Why don't the just make track smooth so the cars don't need any suspension.

    85. Nick Makes & Breaks Stuff

      So that rubber bit in the thumbnail is essentially a bump stop that comes into play when both sides of the suspension are loaded up equally like on a straight.

    86. Kaique Andrade

      5:26 rake has practically nothing to do with weight distribution of transfer, but downforce actually

    87. bobyzano

      Liked it very much! We need more videos like this. With the old man on the shed. Next time we need a regular car part side to side for comparison

    88. metalbrony2012

      Traxxas wants to know your location

    89. David Murawski

      an absolute dream shop

    90. Brian Vogt

      Is this about how F1 Suspension Works, or about how Benetton suspension worked 25-30 years ago?

    91. rexdlu

      Like an rc car

    92. EvilScientistMoose


    93. Matthew Sinclair

      I've never seen a weld like that before. Incredible.

    94. iniquity

      "There's thousands of components..." sounds like we'll be getting thousands of videos then! ;)

    95. gavfr

      no wonder F1 is so expensive, works of engineering art that 99.9999999999999% of F1 fans won't ever see, I pause the tv when it shows the cars undressed, aching to glimpse the engineering.

    96. herpes der Götterbote

      Working and especially machining and welding titanium is absolute hell. making that part must have been absolutely infuriating

    97. Mandy B

      Some serious bits of kit there! Precision engineering at its finest. Tell me anything about the parts, it's fascinating!

    98. Olivyay

      04:57 Did you close part of the radiator intake with tape? Can you elaborate on that? The Judd engine needs less cooling than the original Renault, or the cold temperature that day allowed for a smaller intake?

    99. Richard Berndt

      Isnt it just a steel bar at the Moment that uses torsion spring?

    100. hugolafhugolaf

      Benetton Judd???

      1. Olivyay

        They probably can't source Renault engines from that time, so they went with another customer engine.
