    Last year's Salopian was assisted, quite a bit actually ! If it's Leander, maybe they'll let it out on it's own after last weekend's exploits.

  5. MellishR liked daddsie's post in the thread Ticket Prices SVR?.

  6. MellishR liked Greenway's post in the thread Ticket Prices SVR?.

    Not necessarily! Dadsie may have decided a trip on the spur of the moment, not everyone wanders the streets with mobile phones, tablets etc. at the ready. It would be good for Dadsie to answer some of the assumptions made here, but I guess he may...

    Gosh, if you're considering an Alternator in place of the generator you are really pushing the boundaries in terms of engineering re-design. That said, given the task facing you, the additional effort of changing the control system to accommodate...
