Re: With deepest sympathy.

Well, Nick had a suitably noisy and very fitting send off today.
A common theme in the eulogies; the world has lost a big man with a huge heart. So very true.
RIP Nick.

Re: Gravity Racer, take II

Good stuff! I remember reading all about last years entry...well done!
One thing though, IMHO, your seat, although very comfy may well be a tad heavy and un-aerodynamic? :laugh: :laugh:

Very sadly missed indeed. An unbelievably generous, wonderful man, always giving.
So very cruel for him to be taken thus.

Re: possibly the sickest engine/tran package for an SLC ??

I drove that Gearbox in their GT40. It is a stonking gearbox, really well thought out and very strong. Very easy to change the ratios. And yes it has reverse.

You have a PM Dave.
