Quick motoring attitude poll.


Recommended Posts

I'm doing this survey on behalf of Oz Drive (the Australian Drivers Group) and would appreciate it if you all took part, there's no right or wrong answer, we are just trying to guage peoples attitudes.

Hypothetical situation:

You're driving along in a suburban street, in your mirror, you see another car closing fast, doing 80 or 90 in a 50 zone. Would you?

A) Ignore them and stay at your current speed

B) Speed up

C) Slow down

D) Pull over and let them go past

Thanks for your participation.

Match their speed once they're next to me, tap the horn 3 times to signal it's on, then go for it :P

Just kidding, I'd probably drive at my current speed if not slow down a little. I'd be constantly watching them in my mirror to make sure they're not going to hit me though.

EDIT: I guess that means my answer is A :wave:

A until they hassle me.

C if they tailgate REAL close and are giving the bird etc.

D if they obviously wanna get past, but aren't being tools about it.

BTW my mate had this happen today, he stayed at 50, commodore got angry, had a wheel brace (the rod type ones) out the window waving around...ended up taking a short cut(well long cut but went fast) and throw a bottle of brake fluid at the car when he got out in front, then took off ...mate chased him..ended up out the front with the guy with the iron and him nothing, the wuss wouldnt come onto the road tho (ie. mate didnt wanna trespass and the hero was a wuss)

Cops rolled past at the time, so now they are going to caught.

    • Does this count as a time trial as well? I got all gold in the master super licence (1 lap time trial) and received a McLaren MP4/4 for my trouble.  If anyone else has done this, did you ride the wall right around the first long right hander at Lake Louise snow track to get gold? I couldn't do it any other way... best I could do without riding the was was within 2 tenths of the gold time.
    • I definitely get the low power, sporty car to drive to smash gears but not be doing eleventy million miles an hour! It makes all the normal drives fun!   Rev match tune sounds like the funs! I didn't know the NC had a DBW throttle!   As for me, still have the Skyline, it still has the Barra in it. It's been pushed to the side of the workshop at the moment. Pretty much waiting on me finishing the wiring, and dropping new fuel lines in. Got myself an ACDC Tig end of last year so been teaching myself TIG welding to build a few things for the Skyline. The missus wrote off her GTB liberty at the end of last year, and got it back on salvage rights stupid cheap. It's also still registered, so will mean easier for me to take to the track already done most of the panel damage, just playing "clear the workshop" to make space to pull the motor and box out, fix some oil leaks, replace the clutch, and replace a few minor broken things.  Also got a Lathe at the start of the year, which is adding to the annoyance of no space, which is another reason I'm trying to build things to get more space, to get the Lathe back in a final home for it. It's a BIG lathe, can turn a 355mm diameter, and 1metre between centres... Got it at a steal! So between it and the TIG and old MIG welder, I'll be fabbing some fun little shit up But we've had a lot of shit stuff happening at home, so it's slow going getting things done. But one step at a time!
    • I love Catalunya.  Got a 1:54.632. The AMG is a hoot.
    • I hadn't got that far, my main worry was the connection to the actual calipers themselves. I'm just using new (ish) stock brake lines in the stock setup. I've just had a stud welded to the knuckle that is a little lower than the original stud (so my knuckles have two studs each side) to not have it be stretched so far in previous BBK setups, so the "block" (in the second picture) mounts a little lower for me and I hope I don't need to change anything. I may have even changed the connection to the calipers in the past and have since forgotten I did that. I may not have. Guess how I'm gonna find out. Source: hopium
    • It's more so I'm using the 1x piece line from HEL that goes from the body to the caliper. There's no middle block/mount like the HFM ones or the GKtech ones. There are certain angles/suspension compression where the line actually slightly contacts the ARB. Below of how mine sit (not my photo): How I want it:
