  1. You're using muscles that you never knew you had. It'll take time for your body to adapt to the punishment you're giving it but you'll get there.
  2. Ah cool, that's good to know. Cheers Adam.
  3. Spot on, sounds good to me
  4. @Adam@TartyBikes (or anyone else who's suitably '#becauseracecar') I've got an odd engineering/brake query for you... The storeman at work has been putting together a motorcycle based trike (two at the front, one at the rear) and has just had it fail its MSVA test. The main thing that it failed on was that apparently it's considered in a group along with the Morgan and the rules for that say that the brakes must be linked and (and this is the crux of it) must be operated by a foot pedal. If his rear master cylinder can cope do you reckon hooking that in to all three brake systems, via a brake balance adjuster, would work? I'm not sure if he'd also need another brake bias adjuster across the front as well to stop it pulling one way or another... Keeping in mind once it passes the MSVA he's just going to put it back to front lever and rear pedal it depends what would actually make it work!
  5. Street or au naturale?
  6. I'm still confused as to why the grooves being spiral versus horizontal matters... I would expect them to be spiral of sorts since the cut would be getting deeper as the cut progressed. And why the hell is that video over an hour long?! Could've been 10-15 minutes and still covered anything. Watched the first 17 minutes of fairly meaningless waffle then skipped to 49 minutes but don't really get why that's a thing. Edit: Ah ok it indicates a very high feed rate of the tool. Fair enough.
  7. That guy just seems to be making it up as he goes along. There's no proof or evidence to anything he says at all from what I can tell. 'One side is more damaged than the other side so obviously this was because of the same cataclysmic event'. Or maybe prevailing winds are from that side and 500 years of erosion from being sand blasted could do that? I dunno but don't take what he says as fact!
  8. For the pyramids my guess would be that we are too quick to underestimate 1) the number of people involved, 2) the potential power of ropes and pulleys and 3) the ingenuity of the people of the time.
  9. See, the problem with that is that if the Egyptians (or indeed any preceding civilisations) did have machines, engines, cranes, diamond tipped tungsten carbide tools etc. then there would be evidence of it somewhere. Stuff like that would've outlasted the tools etc. we have found. I completely agree that there are fairly major gaps in our understanding of exactly how these things came about but the only evidence that exists points to the current thinking of a lot of slaves working until they died with some very clever lateral thinking on the part of the architects/engineers of the time.
  10. Aliens.
  11. F1

    Do people really play computer games in full race suits?
  12. Is it the cassette moving on the freehub body or the entire freehub moving relative to the hub?
  13. I did not think that water gap was on...
  14. We've got a Jasic 200P AC/DC TIG set at work that I mess around with. Nothing serious but have fun giving anything a go!
