What I learnt this weekend

This weekend I learnt that it is best to have a helper when loading your car onto a car trailer.

I now have a few nice big scratches down my passenger side gaurd and door from scraping my car on the side of the trailer.

Oh well,
Ray

Re: What I learnt this weekend

it's even more fun when a wheel drops off and your by yourself.

Re: What I learnt this weekend

Hi XDCLEVO,

I needed an exhaust on it. I was tempted to drive it there straight out the extractors but the term "cop bait" comes to mind.

I was booked into Northern Exhaust like you sugested but it changed hands the week I was booked in, so I went to Tuff Muff through a friend of a friend and got a bit of a deal. Ended up with 2.5 twins (off my 2 1/4 try-y's) into a single 3 inch before a single straight thru muffler and then a 3 inch over the diff. Now a few little bits and pieces to tidy up before going out for a proper cruise.

Like timing, a carb kit or tune up from a mechanic, maybe dyno tune. And a working speedo would be nice.

Have been around the block and into town for a bit of a run, I like it!!!

I saw you drive down Hartley st the other week, you have to take me for a run!

Cheer's
Ray

I bet she sounds good with the new exhaust. I know Jason at Tuff Muff and nealy went there, but opted for the other place as he has been making nice merge collectors for the 2 pipes into single.
How has the motor been running?
I am swapping the slicks for the steeters on the XD again tonite, so let us know when you're keen for a drive.
