Re: Your fleet running reports

I didn’t really do it for weight saving. I wanted stainless for corrosion resistance and spotted titanium ones for a couple of quid more and thought why not? :lol: Knowing a bleed nipple won’t break, need working backwards and forwards or be seized beforehand gives a great level of peace. I want so...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Since buying the Landy over 10 years ago the bonnetvrelease has never worked. You have to either get someone to pull the bonnet release cable as you lift or jam your hand through the grill, cutting it up and pushing the release lever while lifting. A pain when I was running a spare on the bonnet. So...

Re: Gordon Murray T50 Live Launch

:roll: was I'm struggling to understand how the fan draws 8.5KW ? 40cm fan spinning at 7krpm. 8.5kw probably isn’t the steady-state power requirement at this speed, but the power needed to quickly accelerate it to this speed in order that it can actually respond quickly enough as part of the active ...

Re: Gordon Murray T50 Live Launch

The weight obsession is also a car enthusiast touchstone and I don't understand why more manufacturers aren't chasing it as a holy grail in efficiency, never mind performance. Because it's cheaper, easier and more marketable for most of them to add power, tyres and electrickery. Let's face it, prob...

This makes me laugh as you'll spend at least 250k on your kid. I mean look at the out house shed. A perfectly skilled individual effort plus materials that cost 2 grand. 😀👍 my kid is two.

Re: Explosion in Beirut

Makes things like the Tsar Bomba seem as utterly ridiculous as they are.

Hopefully the numbers of hurt are inflated by doom lingering press and the reality is a lot more optimistic.

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

The problem is that there’s no such thing as agenda free information. The government pay people to analyse the data so chances are they know what the correct answer is but they only use as much of the information as they need to get what they want. Even to the point of using information which isn’t...

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

I wonder how much information a politician should be liable for. So for example there are a few thousand armchair experts involved in Covid who can seemingly grab information and statistics at random and whatever decision is made can be argued it’s the wrong one. Is it a case of too much information...

Re: Ineos Grenadier (not dead)

I parked next to a new Defender today when popping into a shop at the petrol station. It’s confirmed it, it’s too wide and just won’t be practical. It’s the width at arch level which creates the problem and once the door trim inside is taken into account the guy had bugger all room to get in. He did...

Re: Your fleet running reports

I’ve been using the Defender daily and have now run 5 tanks of Millers Ouls Diesel Power Eco Max in it. 70ml per tank before filling it with diesel. Last month I fitted an updated intercooler and set the boost and it’s going better than ever. Very little smoke when in boost, just a haze when full lo...
