  1. Has Hamilton got a contract for next year?
  2. I expect Russell's brief will be to finish the race. The Mercedes is a different car from the Williams. Good luck to him.
  3. @Bibs When I said digital I was referring to computers and technology which do use binary. It's complicated stuff this English language.
  4. @C8RKH I think I agree with you when talking about cars, but I think you are wrong when talking about the difference between digital and analogue. With digital it is either on or off, it is either one or zero, it is working or not working. You can make these tests/controls at a finite number of places. With analogue it is anywhere on the line between one and zero, anywhere between working and not working, so with analogue it could be working but working badly.
  5. Are you saying that people think the Evora doesn't have a computer? How do the things work in my original post if not by a computer? and the ECM etc. It's confusing, I think if somebody talks about an "analogue driving experience" we need to challenge them exactly what they mean.
  6. @Bravo73 No, it was more nuanced than that as the computer games were always on computers whether you had digital or analogue mode. Play stations are computers. If I remember correctly: In digital mode and you turned the wheel to the left it would send a command to the game to start turning the wheels to the left until you get to full lock and similar to the right and when you you pressed the accelerator it would send a command to the game to start pressing the accelerator until it gets to full throttle. In analogue mode if you turned the wheel 30 degrees to the left and held it there it
  7. It's interesting to see how different people have a different perception of "analogue driving experience" and compounds my confusion about what the term means. One of the things I thought it was referring to was back in the day, when you used computer driving games (Gran Turismo), the controllers you used had a switch where you could choose analogue or digital.
  8. This Covid is a bastard. It's real and it's serious.
  9. Gates are level. It's the floors and walls that are out.
  10. The picture shows that it has a fuel filler cap and twin exhausts a the back. (It's also got something funny going on with the back wheel.) Previously we have heard that there will only be one more ICE Lotus, will this be it?
  11. I've seen a few people talk about the analogue driving experience. What's that all about? My series 1 has: Anti-lock braking system, Hydraulic brake assist, Electronic brake distribution, Electronic differential lock, Lotus traction control, Sport mode, Cruise control and I also believe it has hydraulic power steering. It's pretty sophisticated stuff. I suppose people are referring to the feedback you get from how the car is handling or is it how the car responds to your inputs?
  12. Evora NA will give you cheaper running costs. Earlier cars will hold their price better. And they beautiful and fun. Get a good one.
  13. I suspect there might be restrictions about visiting the factory due to Covid, but good luck anyway.
  14. I think most of human kind are starting to realise the impact we are having on the planet and we are starting to develop more technologies that are sustainable. Things will change because they need to change. People will still want things and experiences. It's just a case of making those desires more planet friendly. I just hope we have not gone over the tipping point. I generally have a positive attitude about the future and technology. The dinosaurs and deniers are a worry but they are surely the minority? The number of people on the planet is increasing and at some stage we will r
  15. I think it's being generally adhered to around here. Numbers were starting to come down even before we were moved into tier 3 from what was being reported. And still coming down during lockdown. You still see the occasional person that doesn't seem to understand the idea of masks.
  16. @Loquacious Lew @C8RKH Get a room guys
  17. With the camera being in a fixed location I suppose there is no need to adjust the "mirror" for different drivers or seat settings.
  18. Got a mate who has just left his job at the cat food factory. He said "Because of Covid they were cutting back meowers".
