  1. Very nice spec E92, and there are still a few of us lurking (albeit no one would recognise me, I can't for the life of me remember why my username is Microphone & not CarMadMike). I need to take some new pics of my current car, I've had a fair few different ones since I last posted here.
  2. I really enjoyed this season. However I'm not too sad to see the format end as we know, as the trio are still sticking together and are going to focus on what they do best.
  3. Wow Diablo, I knew you were old, but retirement?! :cheeky: I have to say a big thanks for everything you've done for this place and for me over the years Andy, this place became a refuge for many of us when either the offline world was getting too much or simply too boring. I know how much time, effort and money you've put into this place and I hope you enjoy having the weight of this place lifted off of your shoulders. Make sure to keep in touch!
  4. I agree with you Diablo, that Japan episode of TG was one of the best episodes in the history of TG I think. It struck the balance between car nerd / entertainment absolutely perfectly.
  5. No, I don't have much spare time at the moment.... is it worth me wasting what little time I have watching S02E01 or nah? :hmmm: I was hoping it would be good. Is it as good as bad TG? or as bad as bad TGT?
  6. Congratulations to Hammy on that 4th Championship, the start to this year's Driver's champ was good but ever since Singapore Vettel seemed to lose traction in the competition. Baku being a race he'll want to forget for the foreseeable future. Hoping Red Bull will be in a position to fight at the front next year, having Verstappen and Ricciardo in contention for the driver's title would be amazing. Will be interesting to see where McLaren end up in the grid too.
  7. Hey Piotr! Welcome to TDUCK :D :hiya:
  8. Good race, and I'm glad Max won it. Really good to see him have some good fortune after how crap this season has turned out to be for him. The Vettel/Stroll post-race incident was rather bizarre :hmmm: But I've been wondering for a while how we don't have more post-race bumps considering how no one seems to be watching where they're going.
  9. Happy Birthday loz! :birthday: And :lol: Very appropriate gif usage, D.
  10. Trailer is nothing too special, but i’m still looking forward to this game. It’s usually easier to see the graphics improvements between GTA games, the improvements over the original RDR aren’t that obvious just yet.
  11. I understand you might think others are being 'haters' and wanting to overly punish vettel for his behaviour, and you're probably right to some extent but you're also being too forgiving at the same time. Max, Kimi & Alonso are huge fan favourites, tens/hundreds of thousands of SGD will have been spent by spectators in the stands wanting to see them race. Vettel's aggression/ego got in the way of that and they won't be getting that money back. If this was an isolated incident then I'd be more willing to just drop it but it isn't, and it won't be the last incident because he got away with it. Labeling this as a racing incident sets a dangerous precedent.
  12. :lol: Oh dear. I'm not asking for either Ferrari driver to be whipped in public or banned from a race, but surely you've seen people get punished for much less? :fp: Causing a collision is enough for a punishment for any other team than Ferrari. The Ferraris caused that collision did they not? Max was an innocent dutchman in a Ferrari sandwich. You're the one bringing up haters and fanboys here, can you not see how hilarious that is given the situation? Vettel ended his own race, Max's race, Raikkonen's race & Alonso's race. But nah, racing incident isn't it. I can see why some would split the blame between Vettel and Kimi but splitting the blame does not mean they're innocent. If I were max or Alonso i'd be asking questions as to the credibility of the FIA and the rest of the sport at the moment tbh.
  13. Mercedes got very very lucky today. Good driving from Hamilton. Pretty interesting race, it lasted slightly too long though. FIA :shrug: Lap one was a racing incident? Really? :lol: So far up Vettel's/Ferrari's backside it's unreal.
  14. Thanks! Test drove a fair few vehicles, but the Mercedes always felt the most special to be behind the wheel of even though the interior is a bit old now compared to an Audi A3 for example. That steering wheel just felt & looked the best. Will be good to finally drive a car with apple carplay too. Love the BMW 2 series on the outside but BMW interiors (other than the new 5/7 series) are just awful aesthetically.
  15. May or may not have treated myself to a new car :ytwh: Not sure when it's being delivered, but hopefully sooner rather than later before there are too many 67 plate cars on the road. Should look identical to this, will post pics when it arrives.
  16. It sounds as if Red Bull are going to announce they're splitting from Renault at the end of the year.....? Where does this leave them, I know they wanted Toro Rosso to go with Honda engines and give Honda time to make the engines work, but are they going to actually risk the senior Red Bull team on Honda engines too? The Renault engine hasn't been very reliable either but if reliability has fractured their relationship with Renault, how will they last with Honda? :shrug: Are they going to try and make their own engine? Are they going to try and get a Mercedes or Ferrari engine? It's a bit confusing.
  17. Two bits of news: - Rumours are gaining traction that Porsche is looking to buy Red Bull's F1 team with the intention of keeping Horner/the team but supplying a works engine for Red Bull for the engine rule changes in 2021 onwards. - McLaren appear to be dropping Honda in favour of Renault power. It appears to be that Honda will be pushed out the McLaren deal and get into bed with Toro Rosso instead, so they'll remain in the sport. If the first rumour happens, how will that affect the second rumour? God knows. :shrug: It all seems a bit complicated atm.
  18. It isn't necessarily my cup of tea but judging by the choice of videos you all post, you should watch this tour of Grid Life to see all the drift builds:
  19. @hassan1995 What do you think of the Project One?
  20. That's what I wanted to hear :D Any plans to modify it at all?
  21. It has a lot of potential and it does seem to be like they've put a lot of effort into it, this isn't a half arsed attempt at a sports car....... but really, those pictures? They're absolutely awful and do nothing to sell the car. The photos i've seen online of the car in a more natural setting make it look so much better, which makes me wonder why TVR distributed them awful pictures the other day. Love the alloys, love the side exhausts, can't wait to see it on TG / TGT :)
  22. The Mercedes-AMG Project One has arrived: Images from Jalopnik 1.6 litre V6 4 electric motors 1000hp+ €2.275 million price tag 50,000rpm front axle, jesus It's fair to say that the engineers appear to have won the argument against the designers, this thing looks purposeful rather than beautiful. Can't wait for it to start making its way around reviewers / TV shows / the press.
  23. The ultimate Ikea car, please tell me you've filled it with flatpack furniture at least once?
  24. New Conti GT configurator is up, I've config'd this to be an ultimate daily driver, quite tame on the outside but bolder on the inside:
