Just wondering really?

Clares post about her alloys, mine about the beemer, the one about subaru suspension set up, plenty on brakes and obviously it would then be filled up with talk about Nicks escapades :D

Would it be worth having or just an area which didnt get used?

Your thoughts please.

Gary

edited to say ........... and loose Steve's special place at the same time as it doesnt get used.

Maybe it could be Uncle Benz's section, where all us numpty's ask questions, and he answers them?!

Are you going to shove it up "his Special Place" then? :blink:
Are you sure it doesn't get used :whistle:


I agree that a tech sec is generally a good idea, but it should be regularly moderated to remove Oakies latest vehicular disaster otherwise it will be swamped ;) :lol:

:thumb: Oh yes a technical section- brilliant!! :thumb:

We could compare tools; bet my hammer is bigger than yours, and the intricacies of the engineering of our vehicles (and how they respond to my afore mentioned hammer and consequent caning!)

Call it the "I want all my salary to go to UB please" section.

Going to be spending the day with Gareth tomorrow- sure he will be delighted to spend each evening with 0.2ml of beer answering all your questions!! :whistle:

Shouldn't it really be titled "Oakie's what not to do section"

Steven has had his own "faggot's corner" for a while, surely it's Nick's turn to have the "f*ck-up corner" :whistle: :lol: :lol:

will this section just be for cars? or will it include us elite bikers?

Bikes are easy, they have half the number of wheels. Simply take whatever car knowledge you have and divide by two when working on bikes.

For example: when changing brake pads, most boxes come with 4 pads inside, simply leave 2 in the box for later, you won't need them. Any time you undo any bolts from your bike, simply leave half of them on the floor. This not only saves time doing up uneccesary bolts but it also makes the bike lighter and faster
