Actually watched their new year's programme. They had live (baby) tiger on stage... The sort of over-the-top thing you would expect from Putin's New Year extravaganza :D

Is it still showing that message? I think its related to fact that I just renewed the SSL certificate. And changed some settings.

'He's the only anti-establishment leader in any predominantly white nation. No hate on any people of color'

you sure about that bro ? because i can assure you that it's all an act, if you get captured it's the gulag for you and you'll lose 35 percent of your body fat within 3 months. you'd rather choose a bullet to the head and be done with it.

racism exists everywhere - 24/7 and you can't lie to yourself and live in a made up 2022 bubble just because someone started to shout out happy new year everyone, let's start a new page as of 1/1/2022, it's just a number for the muffinheads that aren't prepared to face the harsh reality out there.

believe it or not, it's a white man'z world as 2pac once said :)

remember the chi-nees-e virus ? it is what it is, we can't pretend it's just some random virus and they been threatening us lately on their national tv

 

we need this kind of brutality back in murica in blue states and calipornia, crime rate will drop to under 1 percent

 

look at what santa brought me, a gift with a made in murica tag on christmas eve :)

You're the example of someone who gets the right answer but all the ways you get it are so wrong that the professor needs to take away the one point you would-'ve gotten for that correct answer.

Doesn't it surprise anyone that WRC beat Formula E?

 

 

User avatar

FastestLaps  1m ago

Does a bit. The Formula E doesnt have the gigantic power advantage of F1 car so it couldn't erase the deficit caused by 2wd on wet in time for the finish line. Who knows, maybe the E car has its best acceleration at slower speeds anyway and it all was wasted due to traction problems.

And who knows, maybe the WRC car had special, less restrictive tune (for non-competition, showcase events, rallycross etc), although I doubt it.


User avatar

ChironSS  1m ago

Yes it does does! But I'm unaware of specifics like power and weight. So it's something I'll investigate another time.

But that Ford was a Rocket!


User avatar

196ss  1m ago @ChironSS

The power to weight ratio of the WRC car is 380 hp/1200 kg, for Formula E - 340 hp/900 kg.
Another advantages of Formula E - less transmission losses, linear torque delivery.
Looks like really, the only way Ford could win, is a better hook from the start on the wet asphalt due to AWD.

It doesn't surprise me in the slightest. The WRC is awd vs the Formula E which is RWD and they're on a wet surface. Further more, the Formula E is (obviously) electric, which means instant torque. Now that may be a good thing on a dry surface or if it was awd, however on a wet surface with rwd, you're better off with an ICE car that reaches peak torque high in the rev range, and roll it in for the launch. All this means that the Formula E had no chance for the launch. If it weren't spinning for a while after the launch it may have caught up to the WRC eventually, but he race wasn't long enough. The Formula E has a better power to weight ratio than the WRC. An interesting hing is that the Formula E is made almost exclusively for short bursts of acceleration and tight corners, so if it didn't get that initial push then it was game over. Electric cars in general (besides the plaid for some reason) in the higher acceleration range fall short of their ICE cousins with the same power output.

I didn't know Formula E cars were that damn heavy! I guess that's why we don't see electric planes. Not with the current battery tech.


User avatar

196ss  1m ago @FastestLaps

The weight of the batteries is almost half the dry weight of the car.

Perhaps I somewhat overestimated the abilities of Formula E car. However, on a dry surface with warmed rubber, the WRC won't have a chance I think.


User avatar

AaronVector  1m ago @196ss

I think the WRC may still have a chance but most likely the Formula E would smoke it


User avatar

FastestLaps  1m ago @196ss

But looks like the distribution of that weight is perfect - ultra low and perfectly even across all 4 corners.


User avatar

SpeedKing  1m ago @FastestLaps

Weight distribution doesn't win acceleration races although it does help on track.


User avatar

AaronVector  1w ago @SpeedKing

Weight distribution does help in initial acceleration. Even accross all 4 wheels and super low is best for wet surfaces, and rear biased and a bit tall (not too much) is best for dry surfaces.
