  1. Looks like it has already knocked over 2 children but the police must have been involved and done the outlines.😁
  2. Had the luck of a sacrificed Tsunoda. Corrected for accuracy. 😜
  3. The Evora is available, the Emira still isn't. 😉
  4. Another technique that seems to be designed to raise revenue is the alternating speed limits. The gantry shows 60 then the next one shows 50, then 60, then 50..... Definitely trying to catch people out. If I'm on a motorway then I just set cruise control. It's probably more fuel efficient than all that speeding up and slowing down.
  5. @BarrykearleyProbably right, and it's all down to one man. If only there was a way to get rid of him without risking nuclear armageddon.
  6. I'm all for innovation but I do think circumvented was the correct term. It's a specification that is there at the time of testing but not adhered at the time of racing. Hat's off to them for being clever. Yes, I know that all teams will look for a winning edge and interpretation and that it is down to the rule makers to tighten up those rules when they are being circumvented.
  7. The Volvo front suspension is Macpherson strut and the Evora is double wishbone, they work differently so it wasn't meant as a clue, other than checking the camber.
  8. My Volvo wears the inside edge of the front tyres (both sides). I checked the camber and it is spot on, It's set at factory build so there is no adjustment anyway. It could be due to worn springs but I suspect it may be due to my driving style, something I'll have to live with or change my style.
  9. They released the schematic diagrams on the Emira. I can't think what measurements you might need. Could you buy one of the scale models, take the measurement and scale it up? (only joking) @DarrylV8It's all computerised models so no tape measure needed. They will know the boot capacity but for some reason don't want to publish it. To keep the competition guessing? Chinese naturally secretive nature?
  10. Not totally surprising that Red Bull, who have circumvented the plank rules will be teaming up with Porsche for engines. Porsche are part of the Volkswagen group who recently decided it would be a good idea to circumvent the diesel emissions rules. Did I hear someone say cheats? haha
  11. My Volvo had a safety recall a couple of years ago. On the Gov website it now says "No outstanding recalls". So the system does appear to work.
  12. @Frickin_idiot With the volumes of throughput that the factory is capable of I would have imagined that March 23 would be achievable.
  13. Also bear in mind that you are not just trying to protect both air bags but also the the stitching in the middle of the strip at the front of the dash. You probably want to cover all of the dash. A bit of a faff but worth it.
  14. Edited For Accuracy courtesy of Urban dictionary.
  15. That's if the problem is an easy fix. Aren't the cars in parc ferme?
  16. @TomE Congratulations on your LITP raffle win. How much are Lotus paying their chief of communications and how much are they paying you. It seems to me you should be getting his wage as you are doing a lot better job.
  17. The team partnering of Hamilton and Russell reminds me of the partnering of Hamilton and Button.
  18. Nothing went right for Leclerc but it probably wouldn't have made any difference if Ferrari had allowed him to pass Sainz earlier. The safety car caused by Occon would still have bunched the cars up. Should Leclerc have come in for fresh tyres on that safety car? in hindsight, yes. Hamilton was unlucky, without that safety car he was on newer tyres and starting to catch up the two leading Ferraris on older tyres. He was on for a win. Perez was lucky as the safety car brought him back into contention. Exciting race, lot's of action.
  19. "Good luck with specifying that option."
  20. In my honest opinion and I hope you are not offended by constructive criticism - If you can get the dash leather split sorted and the popped airbags sorted and the door locks sorted and the missing floor mats sorted then it may well sell for the asking price. If you are wanting to move it on without doing the work then you will need to drop the price. 800+ views is a lot of interest but then they see the work that needs doing and the ammount that will need spending on it and they don't want to buy into that.
