    Odd Factoids...

    Awesome! I feel so sad for the mantis as is can't get much pleasure out of it since its head is separated from its body. Oh, maybe it can watch!??o_O

    Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

    That was awesome work James and at an advanced stage so tragic that he never got to see his dream completed. Please pardon my ignorance, but has this legacy been passed on or is it just gathering dust? It would certainly be a tribute to it's creator. Dave

    Front uprights

    Hi David, I have the same uprights and your description matches my experience. I'm not sure if you just left out the shoulder wrenching effort required to do a 3 point turn.

    Nicks Forte Scratch Build

    Harsh Winter in USA

    Tornado GT40 in Texas

    Well done Bob, and very helpful for us. I don't have anything except the bottom panel in my Dax and have wondered about the effect of panelling. Never got round to providing a plenum for the fans, knew of the advantage but it's definitely on my list now. Some time ago I instrumented my cooling...
