    I don't think Scottie understands "B".
    He refers to it as a "Battery Setting".

    Still a pretty glowing review for a dyed in the wool gear head. So it shows evolution.
    This is a guy that starts most of his older segments with the sound bite of a engine loudly revving. So Scottie gravitating over to any level of acceptance of a Hybrid I think is significant.

    "B" stands for braking, which means engine braking.

    Yep the flailing arms got too much for me at around 2 minutes in.

    Scotty Kilmer is loud, abrasive, and hyper, but he's an honest and smart mechanic. I'm not bothered that a non-hybrid driver doesn't know what "B" means, but I'm worried by his blowing the stop sign at 8:25.
