I reckon your right.

What are we looking at - aluminium / fibre glass tub on a frame similar size to that of a Hummer? I'm sure you're already aware but the rear wheels also steer. Ya, know opposite lock kinda thing.

Somebody has already had a go.

Have a great time Doug. nice to know its eating tarmac.
The journey isn't about departing in a well preserved body - but rather to skid in sideways - totally worn out - shouting HOLY SHIT WHAT A RIDE!!!!

after the game a couple of weeks ago i noticed the exhaust box strap had snapped again! so used a suzuki SJ rubber mount to mend it today, cheap as chips at less than £1 :good: hopefully it will last longer :grin:

I was given a tip some years back that a strip of conveyer belt rubber, about 2 1/2 in wide is a good fix. But I'm sure you'd have heard of that one. ;)

Nope, but never had a chance to play with a conveyor, this was only 99p and delivered in an hour :good: so it will do, have used heavy belt leather before, lasts about a year if you oil it :grin:

Nice - good tip! Some mud flaps are also useful- it's the stuff that has light string woven into it that seems to last. Also good for tub to frame washers.

My stockman used leather for 4 years, but the rubber belt sounds better and longer lasting :good:

Yes good point after some negaive ones on the Yanks, still it looked ok in the video. I missed most of the good stuff as I was getting a late arival into the site for near 1 hour.
