Intensity

Postby Triquet » Sat Jun 25, 2016 8:05 pm

It's all getting a bit intense out there.

Can we get back to our core topics of BGOL, Push-pull, having fun and Driving Days? :car:

It's pull-push...

But, seeing as you raised it, could those who do it to the exclusion of all else (where possible) and in the Roadcraft diagram style only explain what happens to control if the steering wheel angle required is 180 degrees?

Oh, and, other than the look of the thing, are there any circumstances where BGOL isn't a valid technique.

Silk, your thread has arrived...

It's push-pull in LHD drive car, pull-push RHD.

Surely it depends on whether you are turning left or right? :facepalm:

Northern or Southern hemisphere, like water down the plughole?

That's a myth. The The Coriolis force is not strong enough to affect small water systems in that way. It may, however, affect the fluid surrounding the brains of PP-Only proponents.

As the position is almost certainly either transient or at low speed, it's of no importance in the real world. In StressedDave world? Who knows.

Not as low speed as you might think. I've seen plenty of people with their hands in that particular position. And before reaching the slight tightening of the bend. I was intrigued as to just how inflexible others might be (given that I'm in the 'whatever works' camp)

Sorry, the post was intended for comic effect, perhaps I should have included a ' ;)' ?

I've seen it debunked on QI :) That's Coriolis, not comedy :)
