#471446 My New Mobius Dashcam

Posted by Phil 87 on Today, 06:51 PM

You wouldn't mind sharing a photo of your set-up please?  Via PM if you prefer.

 

Here's a photo I posted before, although you can't see exactly where it's attached. I'll take another photo from further back tomorrow if I remember.

I had a similar problem with the rain sensor being in the way, so I moved mine a bit further down the windscreen and maybe an inch to the left of where yours is. There is still a little bit of the plastic appearing on the right of the videos, but it's acceptable. A better option might be to attach it to the underside of the trim around the active stop camera, and the velcro should help with that.

Any tips on the ideal settings to use in mSetup - there are so many! lol

 

Here's some screenshots of how I've set mine up. You only need to change settings in the first 3 tabs, although the misc settings probably don't matter unless you want to use motion detection for some reason.

You can play with the advanced image settings if you want, but it seems to work fine with the default settings.

I love how someone in the comments referred to it as a "time machine" lol!

 

I think it says "fine machine" but that's just as incorrect as calling it a time machine lol.




#471100 St Strange Noise (Video Included)

Posted by Phil 87 on Yesterday, 07:40 PM

Another vote for induction noise.

I picked up a low mileage second hand 14 plate Mountuned ST last week. Around 1500-2000 revs I get that weird sound like these videos. It's like one of those corrugated tubes you had as a kid... You whirl around in the air above your head and it makes a strange-almost-whistling sound.

 

Yes that's an excellent way to describe it, and it's probably because the air is moving through the tubes in the car in the same way.

 

And congrats on getting an ST :)




#470923 Tie Fighter - Short Film

I just came across this on YouTube and thought I have to share it, for any fans of Star Wars or animation in general.

 

 

I can't believe it was animated by one person lol, took him 4 years but still, amazing.

Looks good, and it has a heat shield so it's actually useful :). I would have preferred for the Mountune intake to be something like that.

If you really want a sleeper you could start with an ST MR230 and put all the standard bumpers and wheels on it :)

Do I have to tell my insurance? Never thought of that ;)

 

Although I know you're joking, it would be interesting to know how likely it is for undeclared mods to cause problems with insurance claims. I don't know how they inspect cars after crashes or if they actually go out of their way to look for mods, but some things like an intercooler or exhaust might not get spotted. I wouldn't want to risk it though :)

To be fair £1395 isn't too bad, just cos you can say that you have a 1.0L car with 165 bhp lol. It's a shame it doesn't come with an upgraded exhaust though.

Fiesta ST3 with MP215 upgrade, and hopefully soon will have the new Mountune exhaust :)

There's no need to worry about adverts, just record and skip them ;)




#469565 Clarkson In Trouble Again - RIP Top Gear

Posted by Phil 87 on 25 March 2015 - 04:07 PM

Sad news, but hopefully there's nothing stopping the three of them from starting a new show on another channel with a different name. Or the producers of Fifth Gear (if that's still going) should replace their presenters with Clarkson, Hammond and May, change its name to 6th Gear and make it into Top Gear MK2 :D

 

In the end I think the BBC probably made the right decision, and I think this sentence sums it up quite well: "There cannot be one rule for one and one rule for another dictated by either rank, or public relations and commercial considerations".




#468891 Ford Fair 2015 - Who's Going?

Posted by Phil 87 on 23 March 2015 - 08:36 PM

I've only got the email from PayPal as well.


Quick Q, to get into the club stands are we given some sort of pass to put on the car or is it by licence plate, etc?

 

Yes you get a stand pass which hangs from your rear view mirror, and has the number of your stand on it, Like this:

I had 2 different passes because I was all confused about which club I was going to end up with lol.
