Basically you and Brian were posing too much of a threat :p, so a big engine rethink is needed ;)

Noel, about 700 miles so far & hoping the weather holds for another month so I can get over the 1,000 & properly nail it (on a private road of course).

I found that when it went past 3000 then things really started to happen, it became a different engine ;)

I know, I know. I have just gone through some provisional, conservative, figures and .................M-18 Claymore springs to mind :rolleyes:

Even with 400ci I don't think you'll get up enough speed to do that to your short hair do.

If only :) I was sticking magnets to the prop shaft, filling gaps between body and chassis and waiting for Tescos :(

I don't think it's rained once since I failed the SVA, three guesses when it will start raining again. I'm hoping to be ready to arrange a re-test next week, so lets hope the waiting list isn't so long ;-)

Roll on October 26th.

Agree Steve's GD is very nice.
18 Cobs or was it more............Just like the old days, when it didn't use to rain on club meet days. :p
