Fast Driver!

Fast Driver! (6/10)

  1. Wow! thanks for sharing that link, it is astounding. Don’t think I should read any more of that forum…I will get no work done at all Ian
  2. This evening in Wick parked outside a guest house….. L is for Luxembourg? Ian
  3. It was reported last Friday that the hydrogen powered buses serving Aberdeen city have reached one million miles of use Ian
  4. On this rather dull dreich morning in Wick town centre, something did rather catch my eye....... I don't remember these cars at all but for some reason I imagine them being either black or grey so this blue is rather striking. At a guess, I'd suggest it is being used for the NC500. We do see (and hear) a lot of classics and (hired?) sports cars here through the summer months Ian
  5. Been talked about for a while now, at last a date for hydrogen production in Easter Ross…2024 There is a lot happening in the Cromarty Firth as the transition from oil gets under way. Along with parked up oil rigs are the bright yellow offshore wind turbine jackets. Major port expansion and the construction of three factories. Not the far away, at Ardersier the port and fabrication facilities are being repurposed for the renewables industry Ian
  6. Just last year in June… This is looking from the Black Chest to the Five Sisters of Kintail, Wester Ross This is the day before, near the summit of Blaven on the Isle of Skye, (obviously) looking towards the Black Cuillins! The dreich weather cleared later on that day We are so lucky to stay in a country with such spectacular scenery Ian
  7. Thanks for this Nick We do rather take for granted all the advice and expertise freely available on ye olde internet. On the subject of brake master cylinder bore diameters, Dolomites use the same size brakes as GT6s, but have a 13/16” BMC bore… It is popular to upgrade the fronts to use Ford calipers, which really needs a 7/8” BMC (I have a Saab 99 unit for this)…. Mind you with the bigger brakes fitted a servo hardly is needed …? Ian
  8. I think the offset is different but a Dolomite 1850 has 4.5J wheels and as it is for the spare may be worth considering? Ian
  9. Ah well, took the plunge and spent £30 on a year’s subscription to Discovery Plus. Alas all is not well, I can only view on the iPad, if I try to mirror screen it puts up this error message It is not a problem with the iPad because all the other apps work! I can view the programmes on the iPad so I am wondering if I should just buy an adapter and use an HDMI lead? However before I do that, I have emailed Discovery Plus so await their response thanks Ian
  10. Does anyone use the Discovery + app via a streaming device? I would like to watch documentaries from the Discovery channel. To this end I have downloaded the app onto my iPad so I can use AirPlay mirror screening to view on the TV (via a Roku streaming device). It was quite a flaff to get the app up and going, but now, having done so I discovered (no pun intended) I have to subscribe to use, which is not unreasonable. However my concern is that the app may not be very good given the aforementioned flaff setting it up? Any thoughts please? Thanks Ian
  11. Brexit…. There are kegs of beer in the pub, but alas nobody can drink said beer because there is no Suremix. Ian
  12. A general observation, if I may…… Many years ago I was told the first thing to check for in such a circumstance is a poor engine earth. (If the earth is really bad the car will struggle to start) Ian
  13. A Stewart EMP electric coolant pump operates at 200 litres/minute. They are rated at 10,000 hours You can either buy direct from Stewart or from Summit Racing. It is slightly cheaper from Summit because their carriage cost includes import duty. When fitting an electric coolant pump you need to consider the thermostat and the operation of the car heater. My experience of Davies Craig is entirely negative and that is being kind Ian
