Topics I've Started

Tie Fighter - Short Film

29 March 2015 - 11:29 AM

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. 

Ford Fair M1 Convoy 2015

20 March 2015 - 11:40 AM

I know it's over 4 months away but I think now is as good a time as any to start planning the convoy :)


This will be for anyone going south on the M1 to get to Silverstone on the morning of 2nd August. Here's a map of my route:




Some of us did this last year and driving down together was one of the highlights of the day, even though there were only 3 cars in the convoy (hoping for more this year). So anyone interested in joining the convoy please post below and I'll make a list :)


I'll update this post as we figure out the details, times etc, but I think I'll want to be leaving Leeds around 5am to 5:30 to make sure we can arrive at around 7:30 but no later than 8. This all depends on who else is joining the convoy and how long we spend meeting at service stations etc, but we have plenty of time to figure all this out closer to the event.


Here's the list:


Phil 87 - Fiesta ST3 - Spirit Blue

nath.mk7.st - Fiesta ST2 - Spirit Blue

Saulamandetra - Escort Van - Red

GingerFlame - Fiesta MK6 - Blue

Danthorpe1983 - Escort MK6 - Silver (maybe)

Clarkson In Trouble Again - RIP Top Gear

11 March 2015 - 09:16 AM

I'm surprised there isn't already a thread about this: http://www.bbc.co.uk...t-arts-31828184


I don't know what to think about this lol, it would help if we had some facts but at the moment it seems that there are just allegations.



UPDATE (by alexp999)


Clarkson dropped by the BBC:


4-Year Olds Can't Cycle On Pavements??

11 March 2015 - 09:13 AM

I saw this one the news this morning and was quite amused to say the least: http://www.bbc.co.uk...nshire-31805312


What do you guys think of this, especially the police officers among us? Surely a 4-year old cycling with stabilisers on a path isn't doing any harm if they're being supervised.

Rear-Facing Dashcam?

01 March 2015 - 08:43 AM

I have a spare Mobius and want to set it up as a rear-facing dashcam, so thought I'd ask if any of you have set up something similar, how did you mount the camera and wire it in? I've tried doing it the lazy way which was to just velcro it to the parcel shelf, but that didn't work very well because part of the view was blocked so it could only see the top half of cars behind. I was thinking if I can get a second hand parcel shelf maybe I could drill a hole in it as set up a proper mount.
