    A friend lent me a dvd last year of some japanese show which was basically just a bunch of extremely fit women in skimpy tops and hot pants running some sort of delivery service using bicycles.
    Wasn't a porn thing just some standard show and there didn't seem to be much of a plot at all, just these girls laughing then riding their bikes with lots of close up shots of their arses chewing the bicycle seats, arrive at destination, a bit of dialogue then off on their bikes again with more arse footage.
    Can't remember what it was called but it was brilliant.

    its hard to know the difference between japanese pron or regular shows, I mean the porn is censored and the shows are basically soft-core fetish (cosplay, schoolgirl or tightpants whatever).

    Oh well I'm not complaining, I guess they have more dignity than the Dutch where it is either pron, or hardcore pron :p.

    They disallowed changing engine mapping between qualifying and race, tldr, ferrari, mclaren and co got the rules changed to squash the red bull advantage.

    Shit will be a lot closer.

    Such a fag, Turbo is coming back. Unfortunately they want to restrict it to 1.6l 6 cylinder instead of 2.4-litre V8 :(. What is the point?

    Tree shagging save the planet faggots is probably the reason.

    Formula one engine technology was far more mind blowing in the 80's than it is nowadays.

    Thats onboard footage of Senna driving a JPS Lotus 98T with a 1.5 litre turbo V6 producing around 1400+Bhp at 5.5bar. I mean 5.5bar (80PSI) is insane pressure for a turbo. My car runs at 1Bar(15ish PSI) and highly tuned road cars will run maybe 2Bar(30ish PSI). They also ran the engines on a mixed fuel that I think was similar to nitro methane that is basically TNT turned into pertrol as they mix toluene through the petrol. Basically it means the fuel is upwards of 120+ Octane (97 is "high" Octane in the UK with BP race fuel at UK race tracks being about 102 Octane I think). I actually saw a 1.5 Litre Cosworth V6 on an engine stand at Goodwood a few years ago and was able to talk tot he engineers about it etc. It's just insane how advanced engine technology was 30years ago.

    Shame like everything else exciting in F1.... it all got banned.

    Here some footage of the same Ayrton Senna driven Lotus 98T at Goodwood in 2008 (I was there !!!!)

    2008 Goodwood FoS was a good one, also had 1920's dragsters through to modern day top fuel dragsters lined up on a grind revving their engines. The older cars used an even more potent fuel mix than the old F1 cars. So potent infact that health and safety would only let the cars run for 5mins as breathing the fumes any longer could causes damage to your health. Video is below, sounds doesn't do it justice. Was a dragster there with 4 V8's bolted together and the white one in the center of the video was producing over 2500Bhp. They handed out earplugs for this as you were so close the revving could actually cause permanant ear damage. Fucking insane year, more of you guys need to go to Goodwood FoS!!!!

    Valencia was fucking boring.

    Also I still don't know how formula 1 can call itself the pinnicle of racing. It has so many rules and regulations plus limits that tech doesn't get pushed forward like it used to in 70/80s and 90s. I know they want to keep the poorer teams in the hunt but come on, some of them are 5-6secs slower and they are not gaining. Formula one should say sod it. You want to build a 1000bhp 22k rpm dual charged turbo be my guest. It will be a lot more fun than watching 24 cars trundle round like they did today.

    Dude, do like Group B rally did and say if it fits in that box, its legal. Well, it wasn't quite like that, there were no boxes involved, but it was pretty much anything goes, and it was one of the most popular motorsports of all time because it was so unpredictable because of the constant technical advances.

    Valencia's race today was a prime example that KERS and DRS is NOT an easy fix to forumla 1 as the shit race tracks (Valencia/Bahrain/etc.etc.) will always be shit no matter what. They need to dump them in favour of more technical and more exciting tracks, but more importantly, they need to remove a load of technical restrictions on the development of the cars. The only thing they need to ban is rear wings casuing the air left behind the cars to be too turbulent to allow drafting. If they clamped down on the aero and made drafting possible..... then you wouldn't need gimmicks like DRS. Bring back old school F1 !!!!

    yes it was dull.....if you were going to go abroad on one of those F1GP package weekend thingies somewhere in Europe where would you choose ?
    Like any ideas on what is best place for ease of access, good for spectators and chance for a decent race (was thinking maybe hungaroring), promised to take the kid next season.

    I hated the fact that Hamilton was told to go slower. His reply was amazing.

    At the moment your not sure if vettal is one of the great drivers or its just the car. He never seems to be fighting the car like the old pros used to do. As aspira suggested the rear wing needs changing, kers seems unreliable and drs seems to work if the track allows it.

    What the sport needs is a fundimental change across the board. A driver should not be able to change any setting on a car. It makes a joke of the rule that nothing can be changed from qualies to race. Although a driver can change a lot of settings on the parade lap. It should be plain steering wheel, flappy gear paddle and accel and brake pedals only in the cockpit.

    I always think its funny when a driver gets told to go faster.

    The driver must be thinking "its 40 degrees, I'm wearing 4 flame proof Layers sitting literally on a engine and some git in sandals on a chair in shorts in the shade told me to speed up. If only I knew I was in a flippin race car."
