Lightbulb Autospeed speak with Rob Herrod

http://www.autospeed.com/cms/A_1704/article.html

Great interview by Glenn, top bloke. Good to see Rob in form and telling things like they are! I particularly like this line..
Quote:
"The biggest problem is people coming in with EB, ED, EF and EL V8s and they've got crappy cylinder heads and crappy intake manifolds. You tell people they've got to spend seven or eight grand replacing all that junk and they ask why. Some people reckon I'm ripping them off when I say that, but I'm not - it's just that other people talk rubbish. We sell our own throttle bodies for the Windsor purely because the stock ones are so restrictive."
I hear that!! BTW Rob - the new gear is going great guns, now to find some cash for some decent heads to go with the rest of it! The thread detailing my exploits is --> HERE

Pathetic is not the word

RIP OFF is better, I am a member of the site, paid my annual fee and still have to pay 3 bucks to read the article

Screw that!

and whats worst their credit card section is not live, thus they keep your credit card records on their pc, encrypted or not, your asking for trouble!

We can always get away with Rob posting it here. If someone else does then we are looking at copyright infringement.

Of course it would go on the heads of those that posted it, but i dont want to have to deal with the hassle. Of course the user that has access can also post or Pm details of their account login to allow others to read it.

Glad this site is not pay to play we would not have as many members.

I have 12 month membership and got in fine. I did not see anything asking to pay $3. I'm happy with the site and the money I paid.
