Re: Limited Slip Diffs?

MX5? In which case StressedDave is probably the person to ask. My other thought is that most of my comments apply to RWD cars. I've had two moderately powerful FWD cars (Clio 197, M100 Elan), neither of which had an LSD and neither of which had problems with torque steer. But the Lotus had a very cl...

Re: Limited Slip Diffs?

I've an MX5 (1.6 110bhp) with no LSD and I recently drove another with LSD. I think my, less powerful but unadulterated car, is much sharper and more pure. The lack of such things as ABS/ESC etc keep you a bit more sharp as well, because you feel more vulnerable. I'm not sure that's got much to do ...

Re: Road Studs

Well, better they're removing the centre line than adding a double white line or lowering the speed limit.

Re: APNR cameras

I thought uninsured was running at about 20%. Be that as it may, the trick would be having the resources to catching them Indeed. Automatic enforcement relies entirely on dvla having accurate keeper details. What are the odds if you're uninsured the v5 is also pointing to a different address? :roll...

Re: Run flats to 'normal tyres'

Type of tyre won't affect the pressure monitoring :) That's usually based on measuring wheel speeds. It depends. I wouldn't say usually. Increasing numbers of cars have valves with pressure sensors in. Some cars are smart enough to go "hey, I've got readings from 4 sensors in my vicinity, they...

I expect one of the various random bits of existing anti-terror legislation could be abused for such a reason, since they're already abused so widely :roll: Do you think a pissed-up fighty person...

Life sentences

Is tougher sentencing really the answer, or is it actually to put some trafpol back on the roads so people have a fear of being caught as a deterrent?
