Had a day out at their driving day in Grasby Quarry.
Took my two kids, the wife and one of my kids friends, who all had a
whale of a time and thoroughly enjoyed it. Eldest had a go in a
'quicker' vehicle, and came away saying he wants to get rid of the
Trials bikes and wants me to get a Bowler Wildcat or something similar
Well done to the club, and the membership form will be 'in the
post' when I get another tuit .. )
New BFG AT's 31 x 10.5 x 15 are most excellent .. but I have a question.
When going over _real_ axle twisters, the front and rear ends make
crunching/grinding noises, similar to when my tyres used to catch on the
bodywork, but which only lasts a second or so at full axle extension, so
I wondered if it might be springs sliding on the collars or somesuch.
Doesn't seem to matter which side is lifted, or whether front or rear is
lifted. Anyone any idea what might be making such a noise?
There was no sign of tyre marks anywhere on the bodywork and no sign of
scuffing on the tyres, they don't seem to be catching anywhere. I've
spaced out the valance, but think we'll cut it down a bit, and the wife
now agrees we'd do better with a lift, so longer springs/shocks (only an
inch I think) will soon be sought as the front nearside corner seems a
little 'springy' and new ones are 'needed' anyway ..
