    Best Trans-continental voyage car

    Hey guys, Just finished watching an episode of Long Way Down featuring Ewan and Charlie. It got me thinking as they have a 25,000km trip in front of them. What car would you take on such a voyage?? Obviously you have to cross Africa so you can't take a Veyron or whatever. Also has to be fairly...

    2008 Post season thread.

    Ok while there are quite a few threads about, I thought this one could be just one post from everybody summing up their thoughts on the 2008 season. A chance for everyone to get a clean slate before we all move into the 2009 Pre-Season thread. Most people here know my love of epic essays so...

    How fast would you be??

    Ok a SIARPC thread with a difference, and doubt it has ever been asked. What lap time do you think you would achieve in the reasonably priced car? I know there are some decent steerers on here (Steve Levin, Ford Prefect for instance) so will be interesting to see their responses compared to...

    TG:The Track

    Hey all, just letting you know that on the bbc website for TopGear they have a new feature called "The Track". Gives a history of the names of the track all fairly tedious stuff. BUT it also has in car footage of the complete lap with Stig in the Scuderia. Much better than the edited version on...

    Rank the current field

    Ok was going to make a thread like this a couple of weeks ago, but couldn't be bothered. Turns out I should have as the 2009 Rumour thread has turned into a war. So now I am making it so everyone can discuss this topic that I find fascinating. As some people know I don't follow a team I follow...

    Lewis gets F1 LM with title.

    Ok so this could maybe go in the F1 thread, but thought non-fans would get a kick out of it too. http://en.f1-live.com/f1/en/headlines/news/detail/080327084228.shtml

    Refuelling

    Hello all, Just having finished reading The Mechanics Tale (on a recommendation from Red_Bull, excellent book) I have a question for you all. In the book Steve Matchett launches a tirade against refuelling, saying it is pointless and stupid. These sentiments are echoed in another just finished...

    Dual layer burning with Nero HELP!!!

    Hello all you clever people, I can't for the life of me burn Dual Layer DVD's. It seems I have all the basic equipment. Burner is definitely dual layer, discs are 2.4x TDK double layer 8.5Gb. So I guess the problem is the software. Using Nero which apparently isn't the best choice, however...

    The Golf GT....

    Just been watching "The Car Show". An Australian automotive programme and they had a very interesting little segment on the Golf GT. The reviewer commented on the smoothness of the engine so they chucked it on the dyno to see if they could pick the point at which the turbo and supercharger...
