  • shawdreamer: back in the days of arton sennsa and nigel mansell a race was always closer, even though the cars back then wernt as limited and standardized across the teams as todays the drivers unique skills had a massive factor in how a race would pan out.... either way it was always a guaranteed sight to see..... same situ in footy, back in the days of vinny jones and the like, they took a nasty tackle and dislocated there knee, quick spit and wipe off and up they got to take the free kick, nowadays a fan calls them a poofters and they dive on the floor and throw a tantrum like a five yr old whos been told they cant have any sweeties.

  • ched999uk: You are right about the entertainment factor. I think F1 is entertaining provided there are some closely matched competition or weather. I like teh fact that on some tracks a single slight error can cost the driver the race in F1. I used to love the, I think it was Rally Cross in the 80's. Saw some live with Metro XR4 at Brans, just amazing control. That was entertaining as rally+tarmac and cars racing each other side by side.

  • Reman: I never really liked F1. It was too all or nothing for my liking. The driver had to get every racing line, breaking point and gear change right to have a chance at winning. In rallying, someone could barrel roll their car into a ravine, but if they could get back on the track and had a big enough lead they could still wind up finishing in a podium position. Now THAT'S  entertainment. :)

  • ched999uk: Rally is great to watch and they display amazing control and skill. The problem for me is only seeing very limited clips of cars and it's a tie trial only. OK so the surface changes and they don't get to try the track before it matters. I like to see F1 drivers overtaking, OK so before anyone says what overtake in F1, it is getting better :)
    June 27, 2017, 10:35:24
  • shawdreamer: dont mean to take anything away from F1 drivers but when they race they rely on the road surface being dependably and consistently the same everytime..... a rally driver has to has to adjust his technique on every single turn and bend and take account that everytime another vehicle go's through that turn and bend ahead of his it changes the nature of the surface, F1 drivers are skilled, Rally drivers are skilled and brave..... and more than a little nuts

  • shawdreamer: "once ina while" is all very good with F1 but you watch a rally and everytime its a spectacle.

  • ched999uk: I assume you missed the F1 today. It was ore like rally cross!!!

I use the silver lipo bags on ebay but never leave the room when charging or discharging just to be careful.

I have 3 of them and I got to add from what I have seen on Lipo fires they are not going to do much more than give you a few seconds to throw it out the window or the like.

I keep saying to myself to get an old ammo box off ebay. you would need a little time to unplug if it goes off that a nice steel box would provide.

I use an old bbq lined with ceramic tiles - put the cover on (also lines with tiles) for storage.

Yes those silver sacks are what i use. They will contain the initial flare which is all they are designed for which is why you should always be in the room.

There is a lot of hysteria about lipo handling where common sense goes a long way.

All the lipo fires I've seen online are artificially created so in correct use the risk is very small.

Ammo box with the seal removed ....

And as for unplugging it i'd be grabbing the box and launching it ... one of the many connectors would break or unplug

You could store them in a simple metal cash box, this guy did a test and seems to contain the fire ok

If you want to be really careful, get a concrete building block, the kind with the holes in them.  Put it on a slab and put a slab on top for storage or when charging.  For an extra dimension of safety put poly bags filled with fine sand on the top of the block.  If the worst thing happens the bags melt and drop the sand on the flaming lipo.

This is a good idea if lipos are being charged indoors, like in a sport hall or perhaps at an event where lots of big batteries are being charged.
