Re: fuel economy 101

Pretty sure that's the 16X, which was/is a thing. Whether it will ever be a production engine remains to be seen.

Re: ^^^TRACKDAY, Mallory – Saturday 9th November @ £119^^^

Finally caught up with the posts in this thread. :D Two observations. Firstly, what a compelling way to encourage more female drivers, some very good points. Though I have to say my sister in law certainly doesn't suffer from those issues, but then she is an Aussie.. :mrgreen: Secondly, we shouldn't...

Re: Mid Wales Meet 21st-22nd September 2019

I had a great time, good to meet some new folks as well as see some others again. Many thanks to Sagar & James. It's hard to emphasise just how impressive much of the scenery is on this trip, it's often overlooked because of Brecon/Snowdonia, but is equally outstanding, and most of the roads were in...

Just read about your FD Alan, glad all appears physically well with you at least. Not that I have any clue about these things, but this seems a decent opportunity at a very reasonable price for re-mounting the mechanica equus.. Mind you, December's not too far away either. ;) I'll be in Leeds again ...

Bit of a quiet one last night, but was good to see Pat & Caren as usual. Was also good to meet BADS, though unfortunately he was on his way to work nearby, so no time even for a pint, no matter how tempting.. :thumleft: October will be at Miller & Carter on the 19th, as four weeks notice just isn't ...

The tips don't quite line up in terms of their protrusion, not sure how to deal with that. :-k

Finally took the plunge and bought some bumper dye - results are pretty remarkable. Took many coats to cover the blue/grey but very pleased with how it's turned out. Time will tell how long it lasts....... They do look the business, will be interesting to see how it lasts compared to DTP (Direct to...

Blimmin Eck Brix, I only just about remember your friend picking that up in the thick snow of winter 17 (or was it 18?)!!
March 2018. Yea.. :oops:

In my defense, all attempts at sourcing lower cost R3 tips failed, I had to give in and buy brand new ones in the end. #-o

Following on from the issues we've had over the past few days, there'll be a planned downtime at around 10am tomorrow morning for some upgrades.

It shouldn't take more than 30mins, and will probably be less.
