Re: 2021 Ford Bronco Release - 7/13

Not sure 35s on an IFS vehicle is a great idea. Need to carry several spare control arms/CV joints for harder off-road use The vast majority of these, like Wranglers, Raptors, 4Runners, RAM Powerwagons and AEV Prospectors will never even see gravel. For all but the few who actually use them, the st...

Re: 2021 Ford Bronco Release - 7/13

They can't sell Jeeps in Oz because of its reputation for poor reliability. The bigger issue with the Wrangler is it fails front corner impact tests (reproducing the most common accident). The Wrangler is the only one that rolled in the test - and it did it every time. Just flat out dangerous. I lin...

Re: Car Spotting

I agree, but they’d probably have a difficult time bringing something that primitive to market these days with the incredibly strict rules in Europe. Perhaps. That said, Suzuki has done a great job on the new Jimny, so its possible. https://www.carscoops.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/e553a33c-2019...

The Defender looks much better in the metal than the initial images that were released.
To me it feels closer to an iteration of the Discovery than to the Defender.

Re: New G Shock Frogman GWF-A1000 Full Analog Display, Bluetooth

I have wished for an analog Frogman as a back-up dive timer for a long time, as Casio digital readouts are too small. They finally do it and then put dual-time, what looks like a 24hr indicator, and 'tide' sub-dials on it? Surely elapsed dive time and max depth are just a little more relevant in a d...

There have been tests done that show android phones doing location tracking even when you disable to feature and turn the phone completely off. Back in 2017. That has stopped.

Re: real-world experience of MM

Late to the party...but I'm a fan of the MM300. Mine has been relegated somewhat by my GS Diver, but it is definitely one of the iconic watches. It is super wearable on rubber. I recommend it on the BFK and Crafter straps. http://www.wellnet.com.au/pics/Seiko%20SBDX001%20GT%2015-09-2013%2000.jpg htt...
