#490470 A Close Call For Me Today

Posted by The Dark Knight on Yesterday, 04:23 PM

Copied from video description: Alfa Romeo was indicating left but went straight on! This is not picked up on either the front or rear cameras despite the wide angle lens. He acknowledged his error and apologised as you can see in the footage from the rear camera after I activated my left and right indicators very briefly to point out why I pulled out. He obviously got the message so I put my hand up to acknowledge his apology. - Footage from Roadhawk DC-2.


#489780 The Difference Of V-Power Unleaded In The St

Posted by The Dark Knight on 26 May 2015 - 07:58 PM

what makes you think there may be some crap in the tank in the first place that a fuel filter wont stop?


Nothing really, I've just read on various old topics that a full tank every so often can be good for the engine and dissolve anything that is there and has been stopped by the filter.


I don't want a 'This super unleaded stuff is BS' vs 'It's beneficial and worth it' debate, I was just passing my observations on and won't be filling up regularly with it.

#489658 The Difference Of V-Power Unleaded In The St

Posted by The Dark Knight on 26 May 2015 - 04:52 PM

This isn't the usual topic looking for opinions on whether or not to bother and I've already sent a PM to a couple of members who approve of V-Power, this is just feedback.

Firstly I didn't do this for extra MPG and I reckon it cost me about an extra £7 to fill up. In all the time I've had the ST, I've always used Shell Fuelsave unleaded. Recently, I've let a couple of tanks run to 0 miles until empty.

I tried V-Power which I thought would clear any crap in the tank and the first drive showed no difference at all. Now it has had chance to get through the system though, there is a noticeable difference.

When I put my foot on the accelerator, there is an instant response, very eager indeed even with a lighter foot. The car just feels like it wants to pounce at every opportunity and feels more lively. The car was never slow to respond before but it is more eager now.

I would recommend everyone to try a tank full every so often just to help clear any crap and to see if you can feel a difference.

#488601 Friday Evening Morons!

Posted by The Dark Knight on 22 May 2015 - 07:43 PM

Copied from video description: SEAT Leon overtook a few cars in a built up area before charging off up the road like a moron. Then on the same stretch of road just a short while later, a moron in a Ford KA overtook in a stupid place but failed miserably. If you look carefully at the stills, you can see the red car is still in front with the KA seemingly stranded in the middle of the road. Perhaps he lost control? - Footage from Roadhawk DC-2

Caught this guy red handed and it came out clearly enough. An email has been deployed to the company so he can be advised accordingly.

Not my footage but I spotted it on YouTube. I hope it wasn't somebody on here!


#484601 General Thoughts On The Mondeo 2.2 Tdci St

Posted by The Dark Knight on 10 May 2015 - 03:44 PM

Thanks. I know from past experience of turbo diesels that they are a different driving experience altogether. My Fiesta ST is the faster car of course but the in gear pace of a good turbo diesel would pull away from my ST comfortably and only when the ST is really singing would I be able to gain the advantage - Not on the public roads obviously.


A re-mapped Mondeo ST must be really something and yet deliver good MPG.

#482081 Stupid Parking By Ford Fiesta

Posted by The Dark Knight on 03 May 2015 - 01:56 PM

This is somewhat trivial but I felt like posting it because a large police car, ambulance or fire engine would not have got through that gap.


Copied from video description: Stupid woman driver of this Ford Fiesta decided to park in a ridiculous place. The van on the left was already there and is regularly there. Anything larger than the Ford Focus that squeezed through ahead of me would have been stuffed. - Footage from Roadhawk DC-2.


#480521 Special Case On A Roundabout

Posted by The Dark Knight on 28 April 2015 - 04:21 PM

Report it to the relevant police force who will do an RTC report. They can contact the company and obtain the drivers details (the company will have it logged somewhere). There is potential for him to be done for failing to stop and/or report an RTC. Also driving without due care and attention.

#478841 Avengers: Age Of Ultron - European Premiere

Posted by The Dark Knight on 22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM

Cheers. I was only about 5 feet from Chris Evans (Captain America) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor) as they went up the escalator after the main event. This happened by chance as I noticed a gathering of people as we entered Pizza Express.


I filmed it and got some stills (stills are the last few photo's on the link) and Chris Hemsworth definitely acknowledged me as I stood there waving the replica Mjolnir (Thor's hammer) at him lol!

I was in London for the premiere event last night (not seeing the movie until Saturday). Superb atmosphere and we managed to get a great vantage point and here are the photo's:

I had a feeling they would cave in because it would cost them more to fight the case. These gits need reporting to trading standards nonetheless.

#477508 New Star Wars Trailer And Batman Vs Superman Trailer

Posted by The Dark Knight on 18 April 2015 - 10:42 AM

Two great trailers in two days! Plenty of good cinema to come and less than a week until Age of Ultron hits the big screen!

#476092 Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Posted by The Dark Knight on 13 April 2015 - 09:03 PM

I know what you mean but I couldn't resist lol. Although I've read that at least one clip from the main trailer hasn't made the film. Thanks to clever editing and deleted scenes, there won't be as much 'spoilt' as what we think.

Joss Whedon's original cut was 3 1/2 hours long!! Let's hope it's on the Blu-Ray.

At last!, the Hulkbuster armour gets some screen time.



New clip guys (spoilers!):
