What is the sound of one piston slapping?

I’ve been re-watching old episodes, perfect background TV for the WFH days. Turns out essentially my Accord/TSX was tested in Season 1.

1min 44sec. Not too shabby.

They tested the ~2002 version

Mine got the Acura make-over for sale in the USA, and in ~2006 there were some slight engine changes that gave it a slight boost in power. But I think we can assume it’s not going to drop the lap time enough to warrant a second less. to the 1:44 shall stand :D

I’ll throw some prettier pics in for this post though, as mine is black, and deserves that rear trunk lip thank you. And some wheels... MUST. NOT. SPEND. MONEY. ON. THE. DAILY!

Or have you a Top Gear episode to recommend I watch? I started my re-watch by finding all the cheap car challenges first, and now I’m just watching through from S01E01
