I am hoping for an earlier release. For fun I charted the release dates but I came to the conclusion that you are probably close to the correct date.

Episode 01 = 2013-08-17 = Day 0
Episode 02 = 2013-10-18 = Day 62 - Difference = 62 Days
Episode 03 = 2013-12-24 = Day 129 - Difference = 67 Days
Episode 04 = 2014-02-19 = Day 186 - Difference = 57 Days
Episode 05 = 2014-04-19 = Day 245 - Difference = 59 Days
Episode 06 = 2014-06-13 = Day 300 - Difference = 55 Days
Episode 07 = 2014-09-26 = Day 405 - Difference = 105 Days
Episode 08 = 2014-12-24 = Day 494 - Difference = 89 Days
Episode 09 = 2015-04-17 = Day 608 - Difference = 114 Days
Episode 10 = 2015-07-31 = Day 713 - Difference = 105 Days
Episode 11 = 2015-12-04 = Day 839 - Difference = 126 Days
Episode 12 = 2016-04-08 = Day 965 - Difference = 126 Days
Episode 13 = 2016-07-22 = Day 1070 - Difference = 105 Days
Episode 14 = 2016-11-25 = Day 1196 - Difference = 126 Days
Episode 15 = 2017-03-17 = Day 1308 - Difference = 112 Days
Episode 16 = 2017-10-13 = Day 1518 - Difference = 210 Days

If you average the time between release dates (mostly because of the jump after episode 6) you get steadily increasing delay between episodes which says next episode has about 80% chance of being released after roughly 150 days. But if you ignore the jump between episode 15 and 16 it goes to 85% chance of being released after roughly 120 days.

Episode 17 = Estimated 85% Friday February 16th or 80% Friday March 16th.

 @addsetinn, thanks for your excellent data, here come some graphs based on your data. Assuming linear correlation, the next episode should be arriving in about 161 days... (I am saddened by this number) and if I ignore the last episode, the estimation is 141 days... I know it is stupid to assume a linear coorelation, but it beats exponential...

I was wondering why your graphs are different. Then I realised I only used last 10 episodes for the trendline, Oops.

Don't forget there are 8 Sunday holidays and 1 Saturday holiday between now and Jan 1st 2018 that may or may not be observed. ( the guys do have families after all) Potentially adding 2 months for a total of 5 months ( crying as I type this) until ep. 17.

Okay, as an American I understand that English isn't my native language, so would someone please tell me what WTAF means? Fairly certainly I know the "W", "T", and "F", but the "A" has me confused.

 Judging by the Brits I work with it, English is not their language either. :) But as bmwmaniac has said, a usually stands for "actual".

 Rather like I once heard Glasgow described (by a Scot):

For those following the BOM team on Twitter: there was mention of "possibly, theoretically solving a major headache on the mini". As we all know this translates to "severe delays" in layman's terms so a 210 day interval may prove optimistic. hmm

BUT! On Patreon, the lads promised they'd do their utmost to get the next episode (being ep. 17) out in a shorter time than it took to complete episode 16. Which kind of renders all the above diagrams, calculations and guesstimates useless. Here's hoping...  smile

They are not useless no. These are predictions that are mathematically calculated based on previous release dates. On the other hand, like most predictions, they are very likely wrong, specially if BOM is planing to get next episode out in shorter time period than usual. Here is to earlier than expected release of episode 17

Now don't confuse things. Weather forecasts are often wrong but are hardly useless.

Yes but Nick and Richard aren't involved in weather forecasting! (as far as I know)
How can anyone apply probability to those two???

I thought at least 200% of all statistics were exaggerated.

I think the project maybe a little over the estimated time frame..

Check out Binky Episode 2  -  7:27 and then the episode release date

On the plus side.. its made the journey longer .... and worth the wait.

 

Building a car from scratch is 1000 times harder than a classic resto..

 

I started last year 26th Nov 2016 and still not half way. I too feel the pain.. 

Squeezing a massive engine swap into a mini - THEN

CUSTOM DASH.. ELECTRICS.. BATTERY... EXHAUST... ENGINEERING CERIFICATION.. EFI.. FUEL PUMP.. COOLING... A/C ... STEERING.. STEERING COLUMN ..  BRAKES.. BOOSTER.. SEATS..  TRIM.. BODY WORK.. PAINT etc etc etc

 

Its an 11 out of 10 for effort... but for a MINI.. worth it.

The friendly people at BOM central (aka Nik and Richard) have said to post some outtakes come Christmas. When episode 17 is released, is anyone's guess.
What we do know is that episode 17 will be delayed due to the workshop being up a steep hill, only accessible by a slippery slope that apparently was covered in snow.

Steep hill, slippery slope, covered in show, deep in the forest, or, only accessible through platform 9 3/4? Hmm.

It will be here sooner or later. I am ready to put money on it being no later than 2018. I am hoping to get Ralph in 2017. :D

"Building a car from scratch is 1000 times harder than a classic resto" This is so true. I'm only building a new design from the ground up engine head from scratch and know the crazy work that goes into stuff like this. I have crazy respect for this project and am very impressed by the progress.

Those graphs look much better if plotted on logarithmic graph-paper.

Lyft = lift

Going out for a beer with the lads I'd ask my wife for a lift into town

or if she'd been to the shops, when she got home I'd give her a lift carrying ALLLL the shopping in

Calculating expected completion from slip figures is always fraught - the project office at censored (but it had three letters, all close to the start of the alphabet) had some smart maths for predicting slip - when we plugged our slippage figures in it predicted that we would finish the project in minus three years.

Given the stats (and everyone knows the stats don't lie) above and the fact that it has now been 4 months since the last episode... the 161 days estimate is now only about 6 weeks away...

 ...which conveniently coincides with Good Friday as predicted by Forsh at the start of this thread. Sweet.

Ep 16 was a good one, and they have done a Q + A vid since then. I just assuaged my Binky-hunger by watching Ep 1-16 in one go. Don't get me wrong, I'm keen to see Ep 17.....

assuaged - isn't he in the Ecuadorian Embassy?

If you want to pass the time until Ep17 - Has anyone been keeping up with Gordon Murrys Mk1 Escort by Retropower?
