  1. The beginning of the end for interesting cars 😒
  2. I'm a big fan of ebc brake pads as well, cheaper than DS2500's and difficult to notice a difference. Also you can choose a pad that suits what your doing with the car. Having said that I'm currently running DS2500's lol Always stainless brake lines, this upgrade before any other on all my cars even the S-Max!! Brake fluid wise I'm with the old man if you are going near a track.
  3. Thanks everyone, here's to the next 50

    And there is a lot of run off at turn one in Abu Dhabi!!
  5. Of course he is, he's driving a Jaguar
  6. Sorry to hear this. Lower compression and oil on the plugs on just one bank I'd say was either piston rings or valve seals. Only way to check for sure is do a leak down test or do a wet compression test and compare it to your dry results. Either way on that mileage it shouldn't happen unless oil changes have been missed before you had it, it's been run low on oil or it's been over revved. Both I fear are full rebuilds, might be worth getting a second hand engine?

    Lewis needs 9 points more than Max, so two wins if Max comes 2nd in both or a win and ahead of Max in the other, or two places ahead if he finishes in the other in 9th, but a 10th place is no good to him. Then if he wins and Max is lower than second he can finish a bit lower, but it depends how much lower Max finishes. Simples

    No attempt to make the corner also the footage is Max clearly straightens up when he is off track forcing Lewis even wider, why would he do this if he was "trying" to make the corner. Their crash at Silverstone also needs to be taken into account, Lewis ran a bit wide, not off the track wide, bit a bit wide and Max didn't try to avoid him as a result Lewis got a penalty. If Lewis was given a penalty at Silverstone then Max has to be given a penalty for this.
  9. I'm still using my original Zed battery from 2004. I'm using it to store power from a solar panel so not sure how it would work in a car But it powers 12v lights and usb charging points and never let me down. As for battery charger, no idea about CTEK but I can highly recommend the below. It's regularly used in my ever growing collection of rubbish cars for kids to learn to drive in! https://www.amazon.co.uk/Einhell-1002215-Battery-Charger/dp/B07WJ4CDKL/ref=sr_1_8?adgrpid=103351209559&gclid=Cj0KCQjwrJOMBhCZARIsAGEd4VHjzgPSDKV2gHr1Avfd_21t1vjoVnafNDMBPJ9pKHXDmxbNcNcFIfkaAoCeEALw_wcB&hvadid=447990909813&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9046437&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=14408498705451271797&hvtargid=kwd-365684956767&hydadcr=27347_1726521&keywords=einhell+charger&qid=1636130859&qsid=257-3421065-7997925&sr=8-8&sres=B082TD4R4L%2CB08M6L4DZ1%2CB08LQHYX4C%2CB07WJ4CDKL%2CB00HT9591U%2CB079DDNND4%2CB017A1N6L6%2CB00T6CBE3U%2CB01AB2KRUY%2CB01M1RJU2O%2CB07NJ727HW%2CB08LQHKBNT%2CB01HU474NO%2CB01MTYGLL5%2CB0853SGR52%2CB07SF1KPG8%2CB0816XBGB1%2CB01M1MMZ7V%2CB01AYHOWLG%2CB00U5YGHMQ

    I'm Back!

    Yay, great news, glad your back and in a good place. We missed you.
  11. I got rid of mine when they started to rattle, no issues.
  12. Welcome Jezed. I'd be interested to know more about the 2004 zed, Azure was a rare colour on the early cars.

    Just had an email, British GP tickets are now on sale, I've bagged a couple 😁
  14. Do like this method of skimming discs, if you think about it each disc is now perfectly true to that corner of the car taking away any run out caused by the hub mating to the disk (there is always a bit!). If there is enough meat on the disc its the perfect solution.
  15. My lawnmower is fully electric, no complaints so far
  16. Have you considered rechargeable? I bought two of the below earlier in the year for camping and can highly recommend. You won't ever need more light, last about 8 hours per charge and could be charged off your battery pack if needed. https://www.toolstation.com/luceco-compact-usb-rechargeable-worklight/p82485

    I think Lewis was in a no win position. As Merc are first pit if he had stopped he would have had to wait for the whole field to go past before he could have been released and then if he had pitted how many behind would have taken the start to get a jump on him?

    Max is totally at fault in my opinion. The onboard clearly shows him turn in, straighten up when he notices Lewis on the inside and then turn hard right assuming Lewis would back off. Copse has so much tarmac run off he could easily have kept straight and still been ahead on the exit. Also Lewis was pretty much level and the collision was Lewis's front tyre to Max's rear tyre so Lewis had braked earlier and was backing off. The nonsense that redbull are now saying Lewis would not have made the corner ignoring the fact Max therefore definitely wouldn't have!! Horner and Verstappen are really starting to annoy me, both behaving like spoilt brats completely ignoring that they have already been found cheating this year!!
  19. Very, it looks amazing in green as well !!
