Re: Disc brakes

I don’t have a problem with anyone putting discs on their car. All I’ll say is I run 8” drums with a servo and I’ve never had a problem with their stopping power when properly adjusted. I drive the car on urban roads, including motorways, fairly regularly and they’re perfectly adequate. Unless suff...

I think it’s horses for courses.... we can do ,or not do, whatever we choose to our cars. Provided it’s legal of course :D.
And the degree to which we ‘improve’ them depends upon personal taste and how the car will be used.
Exactly.

Re: Disc brakes

It's fairly obvious that ampwhu is not going to accept any view that doesn't match his own. I found the phone analogy quite laughable, since he was comparing phones to brakes, the older generation of phones to Drums and the newer 'smart phones' to Discs. In reality the comparison should be Phones to...

Re: B19 MOG Registration for SALE

Correct. :)
A private (personalised) plate cannot be used that makes a vehicle look newer than it is.
So B19 *** cannot be used on a vehicle older than 1 August 1984 :roll:

You'd think someone selling a private plate might know that....

Re: Andrew Eggleton vs ESM

I've had good service from Andrew before, though I'm not a fan of the current website.
It's not exactly easy to navigate; for example, which light would be your first choice here?

Re: Disc brakes

No. It's very simple to understand that discs v drums only has one winner. If you want to poodle around back lanes where there are no cars, stick to your original drum brakes. On the main roads, its different. I think people seem to forget it's not 1964 anymore. There is more traffic on the roads t...

Re: Disc brakes

They simply aren't up to the job when it comes to modern driving. I'm pretty sure no current day car manufacturers use drums on the front of their cars. That's all you need to know. I love it when a 'Always Fit Discs' enthusiast comes up with that statement. If you want to do 'modern driving' then ...

Re: Fancy something a bit different?

I may have to respectfully disagree, in part. 200+ miles of range is enough for several days if not a week or two for many, so having a charger at home isn't nearly as essential as when EVs had less than half of that range, like the original Leaf or Zoe. Many would be fine plugging it in at the sup...

Re: Fancy something a bit different?

It'll be decades before there is sufficient infrastructure to appropriately support plug-in EVs. Great swathes of the country live where they cannot park a vehicle outside their own house, be it Flats, Victorian Streets etc. The government can talk all they want about plans for EVs to take over, but...
