  1. Not keen on the prospect of tasting gearbox oil. The smell is enough to identify it. However, is that a puddle of brake fluid, screenwash or cat pee? Only one way to find that out and that's using your tongue. Note, your tongue - not my tongue.
  2. The trust made an announcement on Twitter this morning. No, not a name - just an update and an explanation for the short delay:
  3. Great, you can tarmac drives to earn some extra cash too. Do ya loike dags?
  4. Talking of Bugs, this one cracked 300mph last month. This Chiron hit 304.77mph (490.48kmh) at VW's Ehra-Lessien track back on August 2nd. Driven by Andy Wallace - who else?
  5. There was no running done by the victim. Remind me why the police lied?
  6. You can go down the same route with "if the replacement castellated nuts are fitted correctly" too. Just use the correct, Lotus approved parts for this and save yourself some grief. (It's not a specific Lotus solution, many manufacturers use a similarly designed part.) The job you had done previously obviously wasn't done properly. The locking ring can't vanish once the dust cap has been put back on, so it was never replaced for whatever reason. They didn't use the correct, Lotus approved parts - they used fresh air, which isn't always satisfactory for these types of jobs. If they used fresh air while refitting your castellated nuts the outcome would have been the same.
  7. There are armed response officers but it's not the norm nor is it wanted to have our police carry firearms as an everyday occurrence. Every so often an incident will highlight this subject and mean questions like the one Tony posted to be asked. The terror attacks in London and Manchester a couple of years ago caused a spike in favour of the idea, but on the whole the public don't wish to be policed by officers carrying firearms.
  8. The locking ring is A089C8009F and costs about £3.00. Surely it would be easier to fit the right part? If installed correctly it won't fail or require any attention outside of servicing.
  9. The story of Jean Charles de Menezes is a cautionary tale as to why our Bobbies can't be trusted with anything more lethal than a stick. Multiple cock-ups and negligence meant he was shot seven times at close range. Then the Stockwell lies, cover-ups and falsehoods followed in an attempt to disguise their incompetence. Absolutely no need to have more of that walking around trigger happy.
