Hi PD's.......Geoff....you & I have been talking for years........ ......any member that can submit near 900 build images gets my best vote :c017

We may joke about many things  :ranting, but behind each posting is a message that I and others will lean by

PD's need members of your ilk & knowledge  :tongue1....so keep your posts flowing..... Derek  :beer

:offtopic Most viewers won't know what a BSISCA f2 is so here is mine. Up to 30 cars let lose on a oval track of about 1/4 mile length, the fastest at the back. Much bumper work is called for to get to the front. Note the marks on the fence. Geoff
That looks like a Sprint Car http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sprint_car_racing

Thanks Geoff,
At first glance the wings fooled me, not like Sprints at all.

There are similarities Gerald. The big differences engine size ( 4cylinder 2 liter not big v8).
Only 80 mph, but pushing IS allowed. hence the bumpers (fenders)  all around the car.
No play in the workshop this week bowling in the wind & rain. I have been sorting things to visit OLD man at Exeter on Sunday. Geoff

The car reminds me of the 'superstock' type I used to see at arena essex in the 1980s, don't know if that still goes on , haven't been there for years....

Yes Mick the superstocks are run by a breakaway promoter.
Old man, Yes it was a good day with the sun shining for a change.Sorry I left the superstructure at home. But I did sail Glen Usk the first time in over a year.Geoff

Hopefully this will be the last post I make which is off thread. Must get back to the Duke, having just finished another rocking bike. Now there are three. Geoff

  :offtopic My 4 year old (Eddy knows him as the elf) tells anyone  who has anything broken. My grandad can mend it.  :crash The latest bike has been sold, I could sale a lot more but enough is enough. It is going to be dolls houses next for the girl.  Geoff

At last a post concerning the Duke.  :a102 Fixed the gas canister a very tight fit. Had to cut out a deck beam so the tap would open, that's tight. At least there will be plenty of gas. Top ring is removable, the white filler around lower ring is filler, so I can clean off oil & water after a run. One day.  :hehe Geoff

Hi PD's......Geoff....in OZ  :ranting ...those little squat 200 gm disposable EN16 threaded tanks are about $5.50 each which is highway robbery
as it equals $0.0275/gm...or $27.50/kg or $27,500.00/tonne :a102

So I purchased a 200 gm refillable tank from Sandy Campbell and now use Gasmate 200 gm disposable containers from Coles or K-Mart for $12.00 for a six pack......... :goodnews ....they don't use the EN16 thread...but fit directly into the Ronson type valves in the refillable onboard gas tank

Derek are you trying to upset me. Me spending to much money :darn the thought doesn't bear thinking about. No Kmart or Cole's around here but we do have Trago Mills & B&Q.  My only consultation is I use a propane, butane mix. Which is more expensive than straight propane. But I will try some from them.
