Let's just say I removed my material/ posts, and beat a hasty retreat. It does allow one to appreciate aspects of these forums, tireless expertise and help offered, and in pretty well all cases - "interest and civility" towards all the diversified projects that take place.
I get the same, except for some folks, not being from the cars' mother country is a huge no no, and definitely down the expertise pecking order. I always find on the forums, it's what people don't say that is more interesting, and if I look at my work on the old engines I play with, you see a huge read count and next to no replies. Keep your chin up, it's for yourself mainly, and if you find a like minded soul, well that's the icing on the cake.
Good luck over winter. I hope to make progress on my project bike rolling chassis as the daylight gets shorter.
Still tweaking my project, little stuff and lots of small bits spinning out of the machine shop to pretty her up here and there, should post some shots this spring.
Best to everyone and hope 2016 proves to be a great year.
I was thinking - the moderators must wonder at the percentage in keeping some of these forums up if there is no activity. I'll add a few photos of the "Twin Turbo" progress before it has been run and proven viable kit
No, changed my mind - if anyone is interested they can PM me or failing that - try posting to discuss.
