  1. I think the Government has done their bit to get new cases and deaths down through restrictions and vaccine roll out etc. It's now up to us to be responsible as the restrictions are lifted to try and prevent further lockdowns and restrictions as much as we can. We need to find that happy medium between socialising and entertaining our selves but also taking appropriate measures to reduce risk of spreading COVID. I'd don't really understand people queuing up for non essential shops to open or cramming into pub gardens at midnight for a pint. I'm hoping its short term thing and now they'
  2. Ohh yes I hope so! The engine is supposed to be good for 500 bhp right? It's just the gearbox that's holding the drivetrain back from more power. In the 4XX cars they improved the shifter so even in anger it worked well but not really anything to boast about. If Lotus can come up with a solution that raises the experience from good enough to really ****ing good that would be awesome. And hopefully not too expensive for older cars to retro fit it 😉
  3. From what I understand the FIA had inconsistent rules regarding track limits at that corner. Different rules for the qualification and race. Where as normally it’ll be one rule for the whole weekend. Drivers were initially allowed to cross the line during the race, hence Hamilton crossing it many times. But then got told not to do that anyone. I also think that because Max overtook while exceeding track limits, that some how had more weight than if he was not overtaking? I don’t agree with this rule as either way, lapping on your own or overtaking, you are still gaining an advanta
  4. Do you have the factory fitted camera or aftermarket fitted camera? If factory fitted and you want to reuse the existing loom then you are going to have to buy an Alpine camera with their 5 pin connector. Or a camera that is compatible with the Alpine connector. Most the ones on eBay use the composite video standard with an RCA plug which won’t plug into the factory loom. I don’t know what the pins on the Alpine connector do but it maybe possible to remove the alpine connector and rca plug and splice the two together but you’d have to find a pin out diagram for that.
  5. Good point about Perez. I don’t think he quite gets the kudos he deserves because of the “no fuss” way he goes about racing. I’m sure Merc would prefer to have Russel over Bottas. Had Botas already signed up for 2021 season by the time Russel got his chance to shine? I think had the timing been different Mercedes would have been more confident in Russell’s ability and probably signed him up for this season.
  6. That was a good race to start the season! The two guys out at the front always kept the pressure on each other right to the end. And lots of mid order battles too! Fingers crossed it’s looking like it could be an interesting season! I also am not a fan of the new C4 commentator, he sounds like a caricature, almost as if he is trying too hard or taking the mick a bit. His normal conversation choice was fine, hopefully he just got extruded on his first day in the job and tones it down? I liked Eddie in the later days where he would only attended a few GP. He was fun a side sh
  7. From responses on here and other forums seems the camera module fails is reasonably common. So I would try that first. can you post the eBay link again please? I had a scan through this thread and couldn’t see one?
  8. No need to break speed limits etc just drop down a gear to two so you see the sonic rings more often. The VVT on mine kicks in around 3500rpm and you can feel an extra surge from the engine. When having a bit of fun I’ll try and keep the engine above there. Makes a lovely sound and the throttle response is quicker and linear and a joy to drive.
  9. Put some lead weights in your right foot and you have engaged sports mode 😄
  10. I think it’s 6800rpm and 7200rpm with sport mode. The engine loves to revs right up to the redline. Makes a fabulous noise trying to chase the sonic rings.
  11. Balls! I forgot to do mine, will make sure to do it tonight. If it wasn't for this thread I would have totally forgotten and then wondered what the fine was all about! 😄 Makes sense the older generation are less technology and computer literate than the younger generation and they have been prioritised in the vaccine roll out! If I shake hands with my dad who's had the jab, will it automatically transfer my information too? 😂
  12. I think that interview totally backfired on them, I think the public have much less support for them now. It's a shame the way they conducted them selves bought up important issues like racism and mental heath but without any real substance. As a result I think it has tarnished the reputation of these issues and people may not take them as seriously as they should because the Markle's have cried wolf. There are so many "🤨WTF?!" moments in that interview, from not thinking what joining the royal family might entail, to expecting titles and protection without doing any royal work et
  13. Whoop whoop! the best kind of news! Luckily wasn't them ringing to say there is a delay.
  14. The latest high performance tyres from Conti and Goodyear are getting very good results in the tyre tests, in fact on pure dry performance they get slightly better results than the Michelin PS4S. But where the Michelin still comes out on top is in the wet, comfort and wear rate. The PS4S give just a tad bit more compliance and a better ride which I think on an Evora might be noticeable, maybe on big heavy fast German saloon it wont make much difference. Also the wear rate of the Michelin tyres is a good chunk better than the others so overall works out better to go for Michelin but I reall
  15. New EV car brand launched by the Geely group: Not much info on it just yet.
