Todays Quick Vid
« on: July 26, 2019, 08:10:43 PM »
OK,
Lets' try something new, as you will see it can be Rotary or just anything you find amusing.

First one is an excellent Rotary Video, second one is a non PC  Rotary video that which could never happen these days and the third  a  Steven Segal advert  a  friend sent today which I found hilarious

 




Instructions to create a link to a YouTube Video:

Copy the youtube link (this MUST be of the form https://www.youtube.com/...... NOT a link with ".be" included)

Write your text and paste the link into the "reply" editor box, it should look something like this:



Next, REMOVE the "s" after "http" in the youtube link:



Lastly, HIGHLIGHT the entire link address and click on the "YouTube" button (blue arrow shows where in the pic below) to insert the [youtube]http:// [....] "wrapper".

Your post should now look something like this:



and click "post" to finish!

Love the new thread Clive, there is one problem ......

.... Inviting me to post threads that amuse me with my dark and sick sense of humour is very very dangerous.

I will endeavour to keep it family friendly

Took the s off to see if it helped. Can’t tell if it works on my phone.

Funny clip regardless, and car related.

Hey Clive, yeah, a sequential box is a real nice to have, but this video tops it.

WARNING: its not a rotary! but the in-car footage is to be admired.

Its a 2 litre VW touring car block with a Suzuki Huyabusa head (WTF?) in a 700Kg Golf.

Paddle shift....... he keeps his floor planted in the upchanges, the system must kill the ignition for a split second.

On the down changes, you can hear it auto blipping the throttle. Doesn't even need the clutch.

If it wasn't for the necessity of pulling away, I would think he could saw his left leg off, hes not using it.

Really admire the engineering and technology and all makes up for really quick times, and allowing (richer) lesser talented drivers to mix it with the big boys. Surely it must remove some of the "driving experience"

As far as I'm aware, the only way to link with a screenshot is to find the original video on youtube (if it exists on there, which 90% of the time it will). I did this for one of Clive's posts up above, changing the FB link for a YTube one. Takes a bit more time and googling skills though and may not be worth the effort. Limitation of the forum software I'm afraid.
