Welcome to the site known worldwide as evilution.

The site dedicated to almost everything about smart cars.

Good news! The Government is forcing me to increase the subscription cost.

I wouldn’t say I’ve been lazy over the last month but I have been a bit disheartened over a few things which reduced my productivity. The Hashtag 1 YouTube rebuild is going slowly and it was at the body shop for over 3 weeks. So I started playing with the CO2 laser engraver that I bought about 18 months ago. Problem is that it’s a big unit so that took up a lot of room plus the exhaust and cooling pipes, not to mention all the plastic that I was test cutting and engraving. The only reason I got it running was because a friend needed stuff cutting so I had to make sure it worked and I knew how to use it.

Then I got the new fibre galvo laser out. It’s a small unit but that took up a bit of room. I also had a full set of 20″ alloys and separate tyres. A replacement wheel for my girlfriend’s car since hers was so badly corroded that it leaked. Add to that my dead 451 ED that I should have stripped for parts and had scrapped by now, but I haven’t so that’s in the way. Another 3rd of the workshop is full of old parts from previously stripped cars. This was because back in 2020, there was mention of an eBay style sale area for members to sell their stuff. It never materialised and now the parts have been in the way for about 3 years so I’ll probably just cut my losses and stuff as much as I can inside the 451 ED when I scrap it.

The lack of space really made it impossible to do anything so very little got done.

For years I have been balancing the income of evilution ltd to keep it under the VAT threshold. It’s not just from subscriptions to the site. I also sell stuff on Etsy. Well, somehow I broke the threshold (although I think the accountant just calculated it incorrectly) so now I’m going to have to add 20% on the subscription prices. However, that’s still less than the amount of inflation we’ve had since 2019 and running the site is costing me quite a lot more now. £24 for a year is still only £2 a month. The extra 33p a month isn’t going to make you homeless.

I won’t just be coasting though. Even though the extra 20% will go straight to the Government every quarter, I have been creating more custom merch that I’ll be releasing soon.

A good mixture of stuff on this update.

So, I bought a crashed Hashtag 1 Brabus and started repairing it. Today I went for the first test drive. HOLY SHIT! That thing scared the pants off of me. They say 0 – 60 in 3.9 seconds but it’s definitely quicker. I just need to sort out some dents and some paint.
Also good news is that the magic coders from have fixed a long running email issue that was causing 95% of my emails to go directly to spam. We have all the DKIMs and DMARCs now (whatever the fuck that is) so now they aren’t seen as suspicious.

Come and subscribe to my YouTube channel. I have fixed some 453’s, currently the releasing videos are of the Hashtag 1 Brabus being fixed and then it’ll move on to dismantling a 451. It’s not really informative, it’s more for just entertainment and time wasting.

Doing the website and YouTube is tricky.

Plans never work which is why I rarely plan. It annoys me when you make plans and then none of them happen. So just don’t plan.

I had ideas of getting rid of 1 car and then getting a cheap project car. The opposite happened. I got a car back and bought the most expensive project car for my YouTube channel. It cost more than my most expensive new smart I ever bought. To make things worse, the new expensive car was bought crash damaged. OK, on to the site updates.

I started doing shit on YouTube 5 months ago, not just quick clips that aided the website. I actually talk in them! I have just got 2000 subscribers but I need you to subscribe as well. It’s free. Click here and subscribe.

We can take card payments again! FINALLY the people who wrote the card processing plug-in that we use on the site managed to fix it. It only took them 9 months. Also, 6 months ago, the donation plug-in stopped working too. So if you added an extra donation, it wouldn’t actually come out of your account but it would show up on our system. Thankfully that was fixed with an update before we really knew it was a problem.

It has been a while. Real life has got in the way

OTV from team evilution got married last weekend, the week before I had to buy a suit and all that sort of shit, so that was 2 weekends gone. The weather hasn’t been great and I’ve been doing what I can with the new YouTube channel. Please do me a favour and go and subscribe to the channel. Watch some videos if you like. It’s entertainment, not technical so more people will be able to appreciate it.

OK, on to the new pages of information.
