Re: Tribute Act

250 psi? You big girl. Watching someone put 1500 psi on a 1200 psi hydraulic system I retired to a safe distance. I doubled it and added a fire engine to hide behind when I heard them say "Still not moving - up another 500 please". Bit of a bang and hyd everywhere shortly afterwards, naturally.

Re: Tribute Act

If you look at it that way, then you could say the same of the British Pursuit team I certainly would. There's a world of difference between talking about it and going out and actually building something and then trying to get it to work and I have a lot of respect for them for doing that. The orig...

Re: Tribute Act

Entering the arena towards the end of 2011, the K777 Team... To be fair to them, they've had their punch on the nose, taken it like men, patched things up with the Campbell family and yomped onwards.

I wish they'd just printed the 3d shots as 2d. It's just a gimmick and doesn't work very well, completely overwhelming the colours in the process.

Re: New Members

What is the commercially available version of Choccy Sauce? For sidecar purposes, pretty well any automotive seam sealer should do fine. When I was last in that business, albeit over 20 years ago, the state of the art was stuff called "Tiger Flex". Possibly now called "Tiger Seal" - used it to re-a...

Re: Across The Lake

Given the budget I think they did pretty well. As for a movie title, I loved 'This Rather Stony Path' before Neil's publisher lost their nerve...
