Re: Uh-Oh . . . Trouble in the stable :)

[...] mine has dry clutches so I try to avoid using creep in queues as much as possible, and annoy cars behind by doing little bunny hops of movement as the queue progresses. Having said that at about 5-6 mph the clutch is fully released (engaged? - depends how you use these terms ... always causes...

Re: Uh-Oh . . . Trouble in the stable :)

Good luck doing 3 stage braking in a modern dual clutch car! ;) What? :confused: I explained at the top of the previous page of comments. Yes, but it is still three stage braking. Just because the final stop is trickier to control does not mean that you cannot do it. The point is that, although the...

Re: Masters assessment

So why does insurance typically increase when someone goes from L plates to having passed? Perhaps because the driver is on their own, rather than supervised? Why do you think it is?

All he needed to look at was the distance he could stop in at his speed. so travelling at 30mph, he only needed to know what was happening 75 feet away. Now that explains a lot ... an awful lot! It's an interesting viewp...

Re: Masters assessment

It doesn't matter that it is commonplace on the cars that driving schools use. What matters (or should matter) is what cars they are most likely to drive after passing the test. If they are taught in a car with too many nannies and assistants then that is not a true test of their ability to drive, e...
