  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. Out of interest, why not keep it as a Scorpion? Andy
  5. Thanks John, it does indeed! Andy
  6. 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
  7. Here's some more photos for you. For those who weren't at YWE, yes, it was that dusty! Andy
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. If you read through assorted accident reports it's apparent there is a wide variation of both modifications and maintenance regimes between operators. Andy
  12. Not exactly "ripping up the turf", but ... Andy
  13. I'm assuming it's a DUKW from the "duck boat" description: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-44895391 Andy
  14. I've used Tek Military Seating (a current MOD supplier) in the past for my Abbot seats. They're very amenable to individual jobs and their work is excellent. Andy

    I think that Ian Galliers and Nick Mead have hoovered them all up. Andy
  16. You may also have fun getting planning permission for the garage ... Andy
  17. I noticed that the CVRTs had dialed it down a couple of notches on Sunday and all the better for it. Here's a few of my arena photos: Andy
  18. until

    A shame it also clashes with YWE. Not enough Summer weekends to go round! Andy
  19. A busy weekend - I'd had my RB44 at the Portsmouth Armed Forces Day and was on my way to Tankfest when I saw it. Andy
