Right or wrong. All opinions are valued here. We're an experienced lot for sure.
If you ever get a chance, get yourselves up to a border patrol event up north. They don't have regular roads up that way, things take a bit of time getting used too. 40 seems like light speed on those twisties.
Anyway, I'm off to bed now. I've got another long day sitting in traffic tomorrow.
Night night all.
Some valued points Leigh,its the bit where the overtake of the X trail coming blind on the bend that looks a bit maverick.
Perhaps i am being a killjoy definetly hypocritical but i have had my fair share of RTAS my nick name is flatface
I have gone through bustops on a CBR1000 being the worst ,to hitting a tree in a LDV VAN some self inflicted some by others. a few others but my accidents are not the point here.
When i was younger i was a prat ,these days on the motorway i am a 70MPH man as i am very mistrusting even anxious of other drivers.
Now when i get my toys out on track A 10 second 1/4 mile jap car, and two other jap cars i use which are what i consider fast cars on the track for for some reason all that comes out of my system we are not doing nothing illegal or likely to injure some unexpected road user or public member.
i feeled drained after a good track day but i take some solice out of getting the maximum out of my car knowing that if i get hit or hit somebody at least the risk was clear before we started.
The thing is Daviod that I have not bought any tyres for the MGF's ................................................................. yet. Am only using what came on the car or wheels.
I also expect that renewing the lower arm bushes including the compliance bushes have helped "Elsie" in the handling department. Fitted new shocks to "Blue 33" today so it will be interesting to see how the improve things. Plan on checking and replacing bushes on her too in the not too distant future. She will need tyres before long but is on 15" Five spoke VVC rims.
i can answer that one david and the answer is no
The helmet segment is edited onto that video above. Guilty as charged.
The drive itself is progressive, controlled and the national speed limit reigns on that road. Sure, putting your foot down is always debatable and plenty will argue about their being a time and a place, meaning the track of course. Personally, I would argue against that singular scenario and I would add that the MG video above is a safe, yet spirited drive in all aspects.
The AA, naming the road in the video as one of the top ten drives in the world, supercars on virtually every public road and every McDonalds car park and as much power as you can afford to buy can only surface in one way, speed. Sure, go and get some experience on the track, if you like. It will only serve to make you a safer and more seasoned road user on the public highway. Even whilst driving in a spirited manner.
Most of todays 'standard' cars can do 100mph plus, at the very least, anytime and any place. The percentage of those that have ever used the track is negligible. I have to ask myself why the national speed limit is still only 70mph because you won't get pulled for doing between 80 and 90. Is speed wrong when applied in a car built for it, and by an experienced driver with the ability to apply it correctly? Or, is slow, generally safer on such roads?
return ticket Cork-Dublin €62.00 some weeks ago.
Not relevant but I've nothing else to contribute.
I once went to Nottingham to collect my day one maestro, something like £11 single from Horsham to Victoria by train and then from Victoria to Nottingham by coach for £5.
Small world, I grew up in Redhill and Reigate.
Small world it is .. my first home was in the tower block opposite Reigate Police Station and my second was just down the road in Axes Lane, Salfords.
Westway Gardens and Windermere Way.
Yeah, it was good to put a name to a face, and David and I have meet briefly already. My son and I enjoyed the day.
I was pleased with my result - 10 year old 90k MGZS180, factory figure is 175 but I managed a 177.5, the exhaust, decat and induction are the secret.
We were interviewed but I've not seen these posted and I "phone filmed" the dyno display that I may you tube at some point.
A good choice to get a v v c. They make a good ROAD CAR with good low down torque. Mine will pull in 4th at 1100rpm and you have 85% of your torque at 2500 rpm
If thats the case you have dropped lucky with main dealers i have never had any success with them for commercial or PLG vehicles.
My mitsubishi evo x had this light come on two weeks ago.
Went into mitsubishi who diagnosed a failed AYC pump which is a common problem on this model and a quote of £3750 plus vat.
Strangely earlier this week i ordered the one below brand new OEM coming direct from mitsubishi Japan For £1160 with a estimated time of 2 hours labour to unbolt the broken one and rebleed the system.
