Oi Lee you would? wouldn't you

ponderous in this clip but I bet it would give then the willies nipping
down the shops for a loaf and a bottle of milk.

Yep, really heavy a FC 101 6x6...?
Off course any, I said 'any', light weight 4x4 would do better in those
circumstances.
Nice video though.
Kind regards,

Tis Mr French's motor. He pops in here (afl)
now and then. He claims the bar grips let the side down but I happen to have
good information that suggests he really stopped to put the plates back on
the welsh dresser ;-)

Standard Ambi weighs just under 3 tons unladen, so i'd guess thats
about right. I'm just wondering wether it's got a compensator link
between the rear pair of springs (you know, one wheel up, one wheel
down, Scammel-style) and if not, wether it should have....

no and yes, ISTR. It's got 2x standard rear suspension. Dunno if a
compensator thing could be fitted, if so it'd probably improve its off-road
ability a bit.

It piqued my interest as thats the first 6x6 101 I've seen .Are there many
about
odd tho' I see plenty of 'normal' 101's on my travels my pal even gets his
coal delivered on one when the tracks get sticky but not a single 6
wheeler..yet

I've seen it done on a 6x6 Series IIB FC at billing, had the two close
ends of the leaves on a each end of short bit (12") of box which was
pivoted in the centre. Havn't seen it in action, but information i
have from researching shows that such a link defenitly improves ride
quality, as well as elimitating braking difficulties.

Unless someone else has converted thier 101, I think it's safe to say
it's unique. Perhaps it's time to post this old chesnut again:

And before we have a repeat of last time, NO, it doesn't exist
