  1. F1

    Already looking disappointingly familiar.... but hopefully quali will bring some surprises and closer times.

    True, agree - if you properly get it wrong it’s a disaster, but don’t those wings take over a month to design, verify and build. So I guess mercedes wanted to try out the concept, or their actual car is sooo good and they have so much resource they could test the engine and new mechanical bits week one whilst forcing everyone else to spend time and cash modelling their weird different wing? I thought the bigger change was the new side pod shape for Mercedes more like RB.

    My guess is it’s closer but Mercs (Hamilton at least) out front on most tracks - especially on race pace. I think the front wing thing is less important than some are making out. Newey I think is quoted as saying we modelled the Ferrari/Alfa wing and ours at the moment is better, but we could implement it if we wanted without any major changes elsewhere, which could be bs but newey doesn’t seem the type for it. All I want is Mclaren to be back towards the front. Races are better when there are more people who can win...

    Can’t wait for testing.

    (And faster)
  7. Just as a side point, and unless I’m missing something - I wouldn’t touch the calliper mount if I were removing that wheel. I would take off the disc... only a few more bolts but leaves alignment perfect.
  8. I watched that video soooooo much. Big Jeff does some incredible lines. Jeff in evolve and Martyn in chainspotting basically changed my life...
  9. I thought that would clear no problem. (Or something) big jeff ftmfw
  10. Very simply, your battery is 12x110 watt/hrs 1.32kWH... if your panel is 100w or 0.1kW then it would take 13.2 hours to charge the battery fully (if it’s chucking out at 100% all the time) Tv 0.035kWH Xbox roughly 0.05kWH with a crappy inverter. So the load total is .085kWH and the charging is 0.1kWH. So good chance that’ll be fine? Or something.
  11. Yeah I get that. But it’s soapstone no? Completely possible for a skilled craftsman to work into great detail?
  12. F1

    Yeah, that’s the nature of f1 at the minute(and probably forever)... i didn’t watch the race, and haven’t bothered with the last three. I’m a big fan of f1 but it’s just such a lame series at the moment. Everything about the cars seem just dull - the rediculous weight and stupidly complex ‘green’ engine, the increasingly complex Aero to get round an increasingly complex rule book. (Nothing new just iterative minute details). The tyres! The squabbling is dull and the increasing numbers of drivers without the actual talent but with the pay check, leading to less drivers making a difference. I love the technology of f1, but it’s just so dull right now as a racing series.
  13. “Lathe” is a bit leading - the guy is also banging on about advanced tooling too which seems a bit silly, it certainly appears that some have been turned, but there are other ways to skin a cat. My guess would be there has been actual science conducted on these things, and my second guess would be if anyone had discovered anything other than period tools were used to make them it would have been big news? I’m comfortable that the skills the people who made all these things were amazing, but completely within the bounds of technology posessed at the time. The bits about not being able to stick a twig in a gap are just lolz.
  14. F1

    To me, if that was a battle for the lead I would have said 50/50 blame, Ocon didn’t back out and Verstappen didn’t give room to a car that was at least alongside. The only reason Ocon got a penalty seems to be because he was unlapping which sucks balls.
  15. I love how that video talks about things being done on a lathe then shows a column with features that couldn’t be done on a lathe.
