I like the Durga but I can't keep the image of the wishbones popping out of their cup every couple of laps ( this happened recently at a meet)
Does anyone know how I can contact Barry Hayman
cheers

Raced against a few back in NZ that never had that problem. My mate was running a 6.5 in his but he has universals...
Use to be able to get them for around $280NZ, but I guess the exchange rate hit them harder than us!
But if they're $330 here might as well get the D4 or a 2nd hand B44, at least they already have the good shocks/turnbuckles etc. If the price is the same I'd go for the 44, has a few less issues than the D4.... or ZX5 if you wanna run stick packs... although could it stand up to your subtle driving technique?

Anybody who has good images of cars at the track can you please email them to me at [email protected].

I am looking for high resolution (no bigger than 2mb though please) action shot images for the website. Preferably close up spectaular shots like jumps or hard corners with a clean background (i.e. no half grass, half track with the car covering both). Also, preferably not one of Roman's cars as he is getting way too much exposure for his cars in magazines and on the web.

I need them as soon as possible as we have somebody who has volunteered to upgrade the look of the website site for us for free!

Thanks,

Nick
