Re: Howdy Howdy

Quick question about that bonnet (hood) in your profile picture: Did you notice any difference (cooling or aerodynamic) when you put it on? I've been eyeballing something similar, but t 1000GBP it's pretty pricey TBH, you'd be better off with some bonnet hood lifters. I bought the bonnet hood to so...

Re: New member - Hemel Hempstead

Sounds to me like it's 100% worth rebuilding the engine. You'll get a good warranty from most of the reputable builders (2-3 years with some), which should put your mind at rest about being unlucky twice.

Noooooo! Rotor failure today!

Well, after 15 years of valiant service and hard use, my rotor has failed...............

The screw holding my club rotor fob onto my key ring has sheared :shock: :lol: I'll try to drill it out and use a new screw, but I'm not sure if it'll be successful.

;) ;)

Oh dear, sorry for sooo many errors in this :oops:

I blame the heat and the fact of being interviewed live, without a clue where the presenter was likely to go. Nice filming though!

That's not a problem Nick. Even better if you can bring your own mugs ;)

Thought, I believe theses gauges require a permanent live feed to retain their memory. Maybe your gauges have a switched live feed? Just a guess on my part.

Re: Gauge help needed

Very odd, I used those instructions on my car (same R-Spec gauges) and the alarm limit is most certainly retained on switch off, as is the highest peak reading. It would be a right pain to redo the alarms on every start-up! Thought, I believe theses gauges require a permanent live feed to retain the...
