  1. I'm not disagreeing with anything that's been said here, especially from an engineering point of view, but has anyone with reset ride height actually broken anything in civilian use? Andy
  2. I have considered doing this on mine, but is the trouble really worth it? If you want to drive it a lot on roads just take the drive shafts out. If you don't, leave them in. There's also the question of whether or not the wind-up is really an issue. There's a lot of myth and rumour floating around but I know from experience with other vehicles that these things have a life of their own even when completely untrue. Has anyone actually broken a drive line in civilian ownership? Andy
  3. Handbrake would have been good ... 🙂 Andy
  4. ... and a swim board? Andy
  5. Ask around on the Yahoo Stolly group ... Andy

    Looking good! 😀 Andy
  7. Out of interest, why not keep it as a Scorpion? Andy

    Clansman HF Antenna

    Now I'm confused! There are three antenna sections - top (5985-99-649-8140), middle (5985-99-630-8455) and bottom (5985-99-630-8456), so one set of middles can't be longer than any others. I now think that a 4m HF antenna is top-middle-middle-bottom but would be grateful for confirmation. Andy

    Here's some more photos for you. For those who weren't at YWE, yes, it was that dusty! Andy
  13. I can't see anything obvious in any of my manuals, so: if making up a Clansman 4m HF whip from sections, is it top, middle, middle, bottom or top, middle, bottom, bottom? 😎 Andy

    War & Peace Revival - 2018

    I think they're just being careful about the water due to the heat. I must have drunk several litres over two days with no effects, just let it run cold first. I agree entirely about the children on quads etc, there was a very young lad trundling around during the day on Tuesday. He was being sensible but I still don't think he should have been there at all - what happens if he hits something/someone? Mind you, some of the staff golf carts seemed to be aiming for a world speed record, so not much of an example ... Andy

    War & Peace Revival - 2018

    Just back from two days as a visitor - the stalls seemed a bit down on last year (lots of what could politely be called "bric-a-brac") and there's a distinct shortage of heavy armour with the notable exception of Andy Baker's Challenger 1. Still good fun though, and yes - 35 degrees on the car thermometer this afternoon! Andy
