You ain't going to get diabetes with a snack 😂. I'm sure you'd get more sugar in you after a proper meal.

Lol, do you ever get used to that?  I'm looking at the VW CCs atm (wanted a Scirocco but the ride's too rough :sad: ) but not had an electronic handbrake before...slightly worried I'll forget to use it and find the car half a mile from where I left it!! :laugh:

 

To be honest I rarely use it unless I'm parked on a hill.  Otherwise I just leave it in gear, as I don't want to play Russian roulette on whether it will go off or not when I go to leave, or if one of the calipers will die suddenly and leave me stuck somewhere!!

Auto's have a 'Park' function which locks the gearbox, same as leaving a manual car in gear. 

However this isn't for ideal either as a some engines use oil pressure to tension the cam chain now...with the engine off, the chain can be 'slack' enough to slip a tooth if the engines turned backwards... :unsure: 

Maybe just carry a couple of bricks to chock the wheels instead... :laugh: 

If you are talking about old school automatics they have a pawl inside the gearbox that in theory locks the output shaft and has nothing to do with the engine, but I never trusted it on any degree of a hill and always put the hand brake on in drive or reverse, waited until it was being held by that THEN put it in park. 

Aside from relying on a tiny piece of metal to hold a 1+ tonne car, my reasoning was that adjusting the handbrake once a year is cheap as opposed to stripping the gearbox to replace the pawl if it eventually snaps off!!

Had an interesting day at the track today. Although it was a Lotus day a chap in a nice Racing Puma turned up for a chat and to watch, and I was overtaken on track by a Focus RS! ***** cheek! :laughing:

 

The biggest surprise though was a glider landing on the start-finish straight while the track was live and causing a red flag! :shock:

 

I'm now relaxing after 7 track sessions and enjoying a beer in the sun down by the lake

I like playing in a 7-a-side football tournament at the Leicester City Ground and actually winning the damn thing!

I do like finishing work tonight with the weekend off and nothing; well almost nothing to do until Monday 👍

Been a busy few weeks at home then going to work aswell; particularly this week; getting 6-7 hours sleep per night all week,

I had the option of working in the morning but I said no, going to fit a length of skirting board tomorrow morning and that's me done for the weekend 😅

I've watched a good action movie yesterday called "John Wick" was recommended by a work mate, 

It's sort of Ford related too as he drives a 1969 mustang, 

It's a bit Tarantino style of film but if you love animals; you'll enjoy the movie 

Highly recommend 👍

One film I liked which is on amazon prime is 'the commute'. Has Liam Neeson in it.

The only time I like the rain. 

 

Given the sloped angle of the rear window of the mondeo; would you miss the wiper if it wasn't there? 

I'd like a mondeo but I don't like the rear wiper,

Guide: 

 

I've de-wipered my focus & also won €100 from eFlow for sharing the idea complete with picture as a cost saving tip for maintaining your car; saves me €32 per service at the dealership as they cant bill me for replacing the blade 👍

Won a €100 Circle K voucher 😂 provided me with many Smiles per Gallon

I do like finishing off another model kit this morning (a classic Range Rover in BTP livery). 
That now makes a total of 76 plastic kits I have built in the last 4 years. 
There's 2 or 3 kits in my collection which fellow Ford enthusiasts might like. 

*Mods, am I allowed to upload these model kit images to an album in the members gallery area?
