  1. I know, I mean I only managed 8.11 round the Ring on different tyres front and back when actually I probably should have died. What he is actually saying: cheap tyres will ruin your car.
  2. Oooh, interesting - what was it like? I go to the LM24 every year with a team of lads and theres always suggestions of doing the Ring or Spa 24h too. Ive always been put off by Spa as its in the middle of nowhere, even the town itself is pretty small, do you get a load of popup stuff when the race is on? Is there camping there, is it any good?
  3. Definitely worth a mail to BMW UK, if its enough for her to hit head on steering wheel the bags should be going off - they might want to look at the car a bit more closely to see if there was some issue.
  4. Ummmm .......... OK. I dont know many people who would call Aventadors and Diablos tame, what do you think is as extreme in its styling as a Countach then? Not really, if you look at most of the cars mentioned here theres isnt any modern equivalent - Pulsar GTiR, RX7, 200SX, Mini, Copen, AC Cobra, R5 GTT. When Lamborghini still make an overly large mid engined V12 with scissors doors, mad styling and interior, little to no focus on laptimes for more money than normal people can afford Id argue theres no need to bring back the original.
  5. Had this conversation with someone else this morning. Failing to delivering on promises is different from outright lying, and Obama didnt lie to get what he wanted. Neither did Ghandi, Benezir Bhutto, Gladstone, George Washington, John McCain, Abe Lincoln, Caroline Lucas, Keir Hardy, Tony Benn, John Smith, Douglas Hurd, John Major, Mhairi Black, Ken Clarke, Charles Kennedy or Paddy Ashdown. I personally admire my MP Heidi Allen for leaving the Conservatives when it became apparent they were hell bent on Brexit at all costs, I dont think Theresa May was power hungry either, she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Boris is lying, making promises he blatantly cant keep and contradicting statements he made as little as few months ago and its all clearly just to get into power. What hes going to do when hes there is anyones guess but I really, really hope someone holds him to account at some point.
  6. I like to think we still have a reasonably good media in this country and Im looking forward to them pulling him over the coals over everything he says that he fails to deliver on. Sadly it wont move us any further on but it needs to be done, after Trumps comments this morning where he claimed a reported was dealing in fake news and then lied to them twice someone needs to hold politicians to account. A clown like Boris who says whatever comes into his head could be a good start.
  7. An Aventador is a modern Diablo at the end of the day, the Diablo was a modern day Countach.
  8. I had a go in a Fiesta ST the other day and it was definitely quick enough, dont see the need for a 300hp RS version TBH
  9. Yes, standard 6 speed TT MKIV's will go to the moon IMO, not only are they a genuine legend the USA can import then now - the R34 prices were affected too. S2K's, FD RX7's and Evos will too IMO. If you consider a gearbox is £4K+ on its own now .......... weird thing is I didnt ever think that much of them when I had 200SX's as they were pretty heavy old barges.
  10. But they werent racing. We had a lad on SXOC who actually got banged up for street racing when in actual fact he had just stopped to assist a guy that had crashed after driving like a dick, a taxi driver testified he had seen them going for it when its believed it was another car entirely. Id rather not have my car crushed because some tosser tells the police Ive been racing when I havent.
  11. Track: CL6 or RC05+, Carbotech, Endless, Pagid RSL29 Fast road: Anything but EBC
  12. Get a bigger intercooler and the torque doesnt drop off towards redline anymore

    Theres an element of strawman to that TBF ........... everything in life is a competiton, and everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Every sport segregates males and females into seperate competitions, and the results invariably support this approach - people born with XY chromosomes are faster and stronger although I have to say Ive no idea why they are more successful in darts or snooker, anyone? Being born with the XY chromosome and then competing in the classes for XX chromosomes is the same as taking drugs for me, you have an unfair advantage over everyone else in the race that cant be achieved by any amount of training. Extend this through to its obvious conclusion and you finish up with all male sport, why would a female weightlifter even bother when men are allowed to compete on the same terms? At the moment the records for weightlifting are 151 187 333 vs 216 273 473, thats 50% in each case! When something is this obviously quantifiable and gives this much of an advantage to certain competitors then for the sake of sport you have to recognise it, otherwise youre lumping everyone together. While Id love to see 8 years old playing rugby against the All Black senior team or watch a blind football team play Arsenal (could actually be quite close thinking about it ) these are no more reasonable than having men and women compete together in the 100 metres or Boxing.
  14. Just from Nissan the Sunny GTI-R and 200SX would be great to see back in the line up, in fact a lightish RWD 300hp coupe from anyone would be great. Toyota need to bring back the MR2 (someone needs to make a lightweight MR anyway) and someone needs to make something groundbreaking as an MPV rather than everyone having to buy ****ing Ford Galaxys. Some lightweight driver focused hatchbacks like the Peugeot Rallyes or Clio Williams are needed too, why dont we get rally homologations like the scoob and evo these days? Add a genuine affordable supercar for around £50K (the Supra could be very close) and we are back in 1990 again, happy days.

    Thats interesting mate, almost sounds like your other half is trying to steer him in that direction rather than he is naturally going that way. My view has always been to bring boys up as boys and girls as girls but not to discourage them from anything thats generally considered to "belong" to the other gender; although we are a lot more accepting and progressive these days its a lot easier to conform, at least until you can defend yourself for the choices you make. Given the choice if theres nothing else in it wouldnt we all rather take the path of least resistance?
