Re: No F1 thread?

Interesting indeed - change of regs around brake ducts has caused the issue, and they did indeed receive CAD files from Merc previously - when the regs allowed this for brake ducts. Difficult to argue that one. If only they would have renamed the file from mercedesduct.gif to racingpointduct.gif th...

Re: Gordon Murray T50 Live Launch

On reflection, I am not sure he's thought through every scenario. Imagine you take delivery of your new T50. (Why did you order it with the drivers seat in purple Ostrich skin Jimmy? :? ) You're making progress along a country road, revelling in the available grip, when you come across a section wh...

A mix of MR2 and Carrera GT that I can see.

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

Well, I hope you're wrong. Sadly my MP seems like one of the ones who will look milk it, everything he says seems a bit try hard / fake. I thought our local MP was alright, until she tried to use scientists as scapegoats, for the mistakes the government has made during the pandemic and also made a ...

Re: Gordon Murray T50 Live Launch

It's a Supercar, Rich. Therefore it's immediately irrelevant by its very nature. Watched Harry's vid about it, was a bit skeptical to begin with (we're all old, moany and have Supercar fatigue now, right?) But it's hard to ignore the engineering integrity of the thing. Harry seemed very impressed to...

Re: Your fleet running reports

I think the Xenon's fitted to my M3 are pretty good. Haven't driven a car with LEDs at night to be able to gauge how much better they are. Two of my bikes have LEDs. One of them throws out a mediocre amount of light, the other one gives out a decent amount of light. Both are Hondas, so I'm not sure ...

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

Anyone else watch once upon a time in Iraq? I was obviously aware a while after the the conflict that there was alot of lies told by politicians, but the documentary puts it in really good context just how awful their lies were. Can imagine there being a similar documentary in the future, on the cur...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Felt a slight vibration, then before I could fully read the error message advising me to slow down to 50 mph due to a puncture it turned into a rather big vibration. Weirdly it didn’t fail where it blistered but half the tyre wall came apart - still managed to nurse it 40 miles back home. https://i...

Re: Green Laning report

Jon, there’s a lot of fun to be had driving a car where you wouldn’t normally do so. I like exploring the rights of way too. Why would you go for a run when cycling is so much more efficient and less harmful to your joints? I've started doing a bit of off roading/green laning on my trail bike. Comp...

Re: Wheel bearing/s

I pretended to change both front wheel bearings on my 968 because it's a fairly straight forward job...left my RACE mechanic to do the rear bearing when it was making noise, as it's a PITA job.

Re: Wheel bearing/s

If I'm paying a mechanic to do it - get just the worn side done.

If I'm doing it myself - both sides.
