    Probably for the best. Moose is delicious. I had whale once (don’t hate me, he was already dead) and it tasted fecking dreadful.

    Its Sunny, May as well run up the QP

    Thanks. It does sound good (secondary de-cat and remote valve bypass help), but lacks the low-end rumble and snarl that the Maser V8s have. Where it really gets jiggy is higher up the rev range, where the sound is intoxicating but the speedo is heading fast into the trouble-zone.

    I’m equally interested to learn which he has stopped eating. My money’s on the sea lion.

    Brilliant! Well done, Newton. To give you some context, that’s the birth weight of a southern sea lion. Or a moose.

    Its Sunny, May as well run up the QP

    Copying Matt's, here's mine. Cold, so it didn't get any revs, but it really was a pleasure to start it even without going out for slither on these cold greasy roads and PZeros.

    Jackpoint stands - same place for jacking and stand

    A flat top with a hockey puck. The guy that owns the company lives in the frozen mid-west where hockey's a way of life, and he was kind enough to chuck a couple in the box. They're not cheap, but jacking the car up and then just lowering it on to the stand was so easy. Whilst I'm wary of the...

    The good morning thread

    With the weather less cold I've finally got my wheels off, thoroughly cleaned and ready to wax. I'm hugely impressed with the Jackpoint Jackstands, as well as the Draper ultra-low profile trolley jack I got Mrs Crud for Valentine's Day. They made the job much easier. Now I just need to distract...

    Jackpoint stands - same place for jacking and stand

    Finally got round to getting my wheels off today. I'm hugely impressed with the Jackpoint Jackstands, which make jacking safely so much easier. It helps that the Vantage is so short and stiff - I jacked it up at the back and was able to get the stands under both ends and get both the front and...

    Ok - not sure I can stay a Maser-hobo. Mental help needed!

    As a seasoned quant, you must have a cracking man-maths calculator, Stu.

    Well done, Matt. The boxing must help - it's brutal. All Bran's a menace. 30 minutes after a bowl of that stuff and the gate of **** open. Bran Flakes do the same job (sorry) but with a longer fuse. No clue what I weigh but I'm a skinny sod so that's not really the issue, but I'm certainly...

    The good morning thread

    I had set aside part of today to procrastinate, then I though bollox, I just can’t be arsed. I’ll do it tomorrow instead.

    Not. Morning, all.

    Grand Tour - Series 3

    Ep 5 was good because of the Jim Clark piece. What a bloody legend lives on for that man! The Alpine review was pretty interesting, likewise Urus but why the **** do they have to be quite that puerile? That’s our job!

    Newbie needing help already

    The lightest dab of glue will do the trick. Worked on mine.

    New GTS owner

    Matt - I need to commission you to design a CarPlay upgrade for the Vantage system. MD price £3-4k. Conaero budget - 20% of that. :-)

    Why are P Zero's so Rubbish?

    It'll be the first time I've driven with the traction control off. Much smoke will doubtless occur! Being a cautious soul, I should probably make sure the replacements have been delivered by then.

    Why are P Zero's so Rubbish?

    Other than on warm, dry roads, my Vantage skips about on PZeros like a crazed fool on an amphetamine binge. Patches of damp of greasy road can unsettle it easily if you're ******* the gas. Even on dry roads, if you give it too much right foot the rears will spin, even at the enthusiastic end of...

    GranTurismo replacement open to orders - only 4 month lead time

    The 'old' interior is pretty timeless. Whilst the quality of materials isn't up with the older Masers, to my eye the GTS interior is aging very well. It helps to have piano black or carbon trim rather than the standard-spec brushed aluminium-effect stuff. I'm not fully sold on the new...

    Mate, that's brilliant news! Well done. Very well done. You must be chuffed to bits. Not only that, you've inspired a lot of other people on here to do the same. Well, only one other with the kayaking, but lots with the 'un-fvck your health and fitness' regime. Good work!

    TFIF, etc. Working at home, early start for a call with the exotic orient. Which will need another thick coffee if I'm going to make sense of anything.
