  1. Dorking covenanter recovery

    thanks tony i'll see if they are up for it . ian the holes in the tyres are about 3" deep and are there to improve cooling of the rubber as the tyres were seperating from the rims on high speed runs. the cromwell also suffered from this and eventually the final drive ratio was altered to reduce the maximum speed from 40 to 32 mph
