Re: Ford brakes....

Crap brakes make you a better driver............................ if you survive long enough.
Nothing like knowing you can't stop to make you read the road better.
And the added confidence of knowing no matter how quick you brake, no-one is going to rear end you. :xd:

Re: Roof Bars

Don't forget that any bar fitted to the roof of your car will have to be shut by 10pm, and you won't be allowed to enter any Tier 3 areas. :xd:

Re: It's all in the detail

Slightly off topic, but does anyone remember a few years back, when Rumbelows was still with us.
One year, at Xmas, they removed the letter 'L' from every store and replaced it with a sign that said 'No-el'.
Hope the person who thought that one up got a bonus!

Re: Bonnet Scoop/Vents

Just to add to the aero confusion, Ford discovered that over about 25mph, sufficient cooling air got to the radiator through the lower vents in the front valance. Therefore, they created the Mk3 grille with aerofoil sections, not to speed air through the rad, as many believe, but to stop that air go...

Re: Bonnet Scoop/Vents

If you have a basic understanding of aerodynamics and fluid flow, then maybe you'd consider the other option. Instead of trying to force more air into the engine bay, which will need to displace what is already there, you could consider raising the rear edge of the bonnet instead. The airflow over ...

Re: Bonnet Scoop/Vents

Then we get into all sorts of discussions on boundary layer control, where the hot air exiting the engine bay serves to smooth the flow over the car, thus making it move faster with less turbulence, lowering the pressure even more and improving the extraction rate from the engine bay. Of course, ra...

Re: The new Prius..

Ah well, you're obviously Waaay older than me :xd: Funnily enough on Bargain Hunt yesterday they had a jug which was " a real antique... from the mid 1900s." I suddenly felt very, very old indeed :( Don't you worry about it old chap. Age is a privilege not a right. Not everyone makes it that far.

Re: The new Prius..

Seem to remember Mr Clarkson advocating something similar a few years ago for Volvos. Remove the steering wheel airbag and replace it with a big spike. That would make the beggars think twice!
