Formula One

10 posts in this topic

Does anyone else watch? In my opinion the last year or so it has been more interesting than Nascar. Much of it due to how boring Nascar has become. The racing seems to be either real bad or real good. I think that running in the rain also makes it more interesting. The one thing I know for sure is that it is easy to watch when they run in Europe. You can roll out of bed on Sun morning turn on the TV and they are ready to start.

Id rather have acid sprayed into my eyes than ever watch formula one again. Europe can have it.

Formula 1 is great. The driver's title being decided on the last corner of the last lap of the last race is a pretty fun sport to be part of. Watching cars turn left 1000 times in a row gets pretty old. Also, the lack of technology development in the NASCAR series is pretty disappointing. NASCAR should push for a kinetic energy recovery system in an alternate form, say hydraulic. That might make it interesting. Watching desperate drivers crash into each other and take out half the field isn't very entertaining.

They are 2 totally different types of racing. You can't even compare the 2. F1 is high tech/high $ engineering driven racing, and NASCAR is more old school.

I like the start of the F1 races though. Dead stop at the flagstand, green light, all hell breaks loose into the first turn. Then I fall asleep.

Remember it's not just Europe: It is arguably the most popular racing in the rest of the world. A Nascar driver could only dream of making the kind of money that F1 drivers make.

Of course, some don't like driving there either and come to Nascar i.e. Montoya, Carpentier, Papas and probably a few others.

I have caught many early Sunday morning F1 races...Definitely high tech, but as boring as it gets. Very few passes for the lead. Very few passes period!!

Nascar's COT is designed to let low budget teams still come to the races. This is getting back to the grass roots of Nascar and better not change!!

Watching drivers bang into one another for the lead is why we watch. F1 fans might be looking for interesting. I'm looking for exciting.

F1 is okay with a cup of coffee in the morning. Plenty of skill involved and incredible G-forces. But all of the cars seem to be on a rail.

And here in the great USA alot of us still can't get the image of the guy "parking" his car before the finish line so his buddy could take the checkers!! At least in Nascar they don't make "taking a dive" look so obvious!!

    • What does everyone use? decoy string mono braid thanks.
    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine. 
    • Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it.  Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it.  I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220.  The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing. 
    • An easier thing first is to get the thermostat bulb out of the cabinet of the heater, it will react faster to the temp you feel, not the retained heat in the unit.
    • I'm starting to wonder about my wife, she bought me a suit lined with lead. Now she's trying to convince me it's for the xrays in the sun.?.
    • Here is the p/n of the screws I used from Fastenal.  #0148433  #10 flat head self drilling screw x1-1/4" long.  I'm sure Northern States supply or other places can match them up as well, I have an account and paid about $0.09 each.  Pre drill the wood so it doesn't crack.  I installed with an impact driver.  Try and keep your fir strips straight and at nominal dimensions it sure helps with the second layer of installation.  For reference I used about 350 screws to fir a 8x16 Yetti.
